Shahrukh Khan hasn’t been at his best lately and the friendly harmless neighbour guy image doesn’t stick well anymore. So how about a revamp SRK? And what better character than Keanu Reeves ‘Continental’ action hero John Wick.
Highlights — How and Why SRK Is Destined For A John Wick-like Movie?
- Why Shahrukh Khan is the perfect Bollywood version of John Wick?
- Why SRK needs a major shift in the roles he plays?
- The odds that we see SRK as Bollywood’s John Wick
- What a Bollywood style John Wick film would look like?
Somehow, we can’t help but think that Shahrukh Khan and Keanu Reeves are two sides of the same coin. Apart from incredibly good looks and great acting skills, both have built up an unparalleled cult following. However, Shahrukh’s stature as a bankable actor has suffered a number of setbacks in recent times.
In fact, what Shahrukh is facing today is similar to the dip that Keanu faced in his career earlier in the decade.
So, what went wrong? Event with a huge and loyal fanbase why is SRK’s career going downhill? It might stem from some less than good decisions the veteran star has taken in recent times when it comes to selecting his movies. But it also stems from the fact that SRK himself has been unable to evolve with time.
The romantic star image that Shahrukh came to command no longer resonates with the audience. In fact, Shahrukh direly needs an image makeover for the roles he takes on moving forward.
And what better way than Shahrukh Khan taking on a role similar to what Keanu Reeves did with John wick in Bollywood!
Why he needs a film like John Wick
Never say never SRK! As the star looks to evolve his on-screen persona, a quiet, emotional and righteous assassin is an apt role for Shahrukh at this age. Moreover, imagine how stunning would be the sight of SRK in a trim tuxedo fighting off scores of scoundrels with ease and panache.
Why we think SRK should play John Wick?
Shahrukh Khan inadvertently makes the audience believe in his characters. From Kal Ho Na Ho’s Aman to DDLJ’s Raj, he enchanted his fans and built up cult followings for characters. Keanu Reeves is known to have a similar effect in Hollywood.
Why there isn’t a better John Wick that SRK in Bollywood?
Shahrukh Khan has a unique talent. He connects with his audience emotionally and makes them feel the character. If and when John Wick’s script comes to Bollywood, a similar effect will be expected of the actor playing the role of the silent assassin.
Adding Some Bollywood ingredients!
While we are talking about Bollywood -style John Wick, there has to be a lot more spice and different colours in the movie?
Just like every action-packed Bollywood film, there shall be a great item number that hits the charts before the movie and builds up the hype. Sunny Leone did that for SRK in ‘Raees’ on the famous Laila Mai Laila. So, if Shahrukh Khan plays John Wick, maybe Nora Fatehi can come in and charm the audience with a sizzling number. Now that’s something fans would pay triple to watch!
