It is not very often that you find a successful Bollywood movie that is commercial and yet heartfelt. The film ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ is arguably this generation’s favourite rom-com. So what if Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani was ever made in Hollywood?
We are sure everyone is sick and tired of hearing how this and that Bollywood movie is copied or inspired by a Hollywood flick. But, what if Bollywood’s best movie ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani‘ was ever made in Hollywood?
- How Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani taught us about life?
- If Susan Johnson will remake Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani in Hollywood?
- Who would she cast?
The Ranbir Kapoor-starrer film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is not only a fan favourite but was also a blockbuster that broke the box office. The film is a romantic comedy directed by Ayan Mukerji. It was produced by the Romance Moghul Karan Johar.
The film is a perfect romantic-comedy with magnificent music, outstanding star cast, exotic locations, and beautifully written dialogues.
So if tables turn tomorrow and Hollywood starts copying from Bollywood instead, Ayan Mukerji’s rom-com will definitely have suitors. Based on our knowledge and zeal at match-making for movies, we’d prefer that the American film producer and director Susan Johnson be in-charge.
Johnson is famous for directing films like ‘Carrie Pilby’ and ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’. Moving on, what if Susan makes a version of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hain Dewaani’ in Hollywood? Who would she cast?
So, here’s who all we think Susan Johnson would want to cast in a Hollywood remake of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Check out the list!
Ranbir Kapoor (Bunny) – Robert Pattinson
Ranbir played Bunny, a travel-lover who doesn’t take love seriously until he falls for Naina. We think no one can play the lead role of Bunny better than Robert Pattinson who is not just good looking but also has great acting skills. The handsome dashing Twilight star fits the bill perfectly for the role of Bunny in ‘Young and Crazy‘ (our pick for the title).
Deepika Padukone (Naina) – Jennifer Lawrence
Deepika plays Naina Talwar, a geek and an introvert, who falls for Ranbir’s Bunny. Jennifer Lawrence is a great actor in Hollywood. At the age of 29, she has already won an Oscar. Lawrence is a tried and tested Hollywood A-lister just like Deepika Padukone is in Bollywood. No one can play Naina’s role better than Lawrence. Agree?
Aditya Roy Kapoor (Avi) – Chris Pine
Aditya Roy Kapoor played Avinash Arora (Avi), a fun-loving and flirtatious guy with a drink in hand and two in his hip-flask. He is the best friend to Bunny. Aditya Roy Kapoor played the role of Avi but we wonder what if Chris Pine played the role in ‘Young and Crazy’? Pine is known for his incredible looks and more than this he has some serious acting talent.
Kalkie Koechlin (Aditi) – Emma Watson
Kalki played Aditi Mehra, a tomboy, and childish girl but matured by time. Aditi is close friends with Naina and also with Avi and Bunny. We feel that Harry Potter franchise star Emma perfectly fits the bill for the role of Aditi. Emma can be both a tomboy and a sexy lady at the same time.
Kunaal Roy Kapur (Taran) – Jack Black
Kunaal Roy Kapur as Taran — is Aditi’s husband who is awkward, weird and strange but good at heart. Our choice here is Jack Black for the role of Taran. Black has an impressive acting range.
