While Bollywood still lacks technical skills and resources to produce mind-numbing sci-fi movies, the future will not be so. A remake of The Matrix would totally be on the cards.
Highlights – What if Bollywood makes ‘The Matrix’
- Bollywood’s evolution to producing sci-fi movies
- Who would you choose to direct Bollywood version of The Matrix?
- An iconic cast for iconic characters
Hollywood is the world’s leading factory of sci-fi films. Why Bollywood has not reached there till now is restrictions like pumping-in a huge budget and reservations like the taste of audiences. In the average budget of a Hollywood sci-fi movie, Bollywood would produce at least five movies.
However, Bollywood also produced movies like Krish, War, Ra.One and 2.0. These films would improve with time and Bollywood would also have good sci-fi films in the near future.
But, now we can only just imagine what if those films were made in Bollywood then how would it be?
We had earlier talked about Bollywood Avengers and Bollywood Fast & Furious. Today we are going to have a take on Hollywood’s most loved sci-fi film ‘The Matrix’ and how it would look if made in Bollywood? Who will be the director and who will play the iconic characters?
Siddharth Anand — The Director
Producing a film like ‘The Matrix’ in Bollywood won’t be easy. We need a solid director with prolific imagination. Siddharth Anand’s directorial debut with War and his upcoming film Rambo, the Hindi adaptation of Sylvester Stallone‘s 1982’s classic make him an apt candidate.
Neo (Keanu Reeves) — Tiger Shroff
One of the best action heroes in Bollywood in recent times, Tiger is undoubtedly the hot favourite. The actor debuted with Heropanti and amazed us with his stunts. If you have watched ‘The Matrix’, you would know how perfect Keanu was for the role. We firmly think that no one else can play the role of Neo better than Tiger in Bollywood’s Matrix.
Moreover, the actor recently uploaded a video on his Instagram handle where he recreates the famous action scene of ‘The Matrix’. After watching this we believe that Tiger Shroff has booked his spot as Neo in Bollywood Matrix.
Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) — Hrithik Roshan
Of course, if we have Tiger shroff as Neo, then on the other end should be someone who actually is an inspiration to Tiger. We would like to put Hrithik Roshan’s forward to the casting director. Now that’s an epic fight between Bollywood’s most nimble male leads.
The Bollywood duo is ultimately a double dose of action. The audience loved their pair in the last film ‘War’. Undoubtedly, Hrithik would become a great villain in Bollywood’s version of The Matrix.
Watch this iconic fight scene and imagine Neo vs Agent Smith as Tiger Shroff vs Hrithik Roshan —
Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) — Disha Patani
Who can play better Trinity than Disha Patani in Bollywood Matrix? Her love for back and front flip is known to all. Here we can say Bollywood actress Disha Patani would be the perfect choice to play Trinity.
Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) — John Abraham
One of the most tricky questions – Who would you choose to play Morpheus?
Just because of his leadership qualities. And he also lands great punches. We think John Abraham would be a perfect fit for the role of Morpheus (played by Laurence Fishburne).
