If ‘Harry Potter’ was Made in Bollywood

Many of our writers along with their Bollywood love, also proudly proclaim their love for the Harry Potter series. Most of us have read all of the books several times over and have seen all the films. We wish that we lived in the magical world of Harry Potter and in fact, most of us have said one time or a thousand, ‘I would love to go to Hogwarts’! The last film has made its way into the theaters and though the books are still there so we can visit, we will never again wait impatiently for the release of the next book or film. Since we are geeks in both Bollywood and Harry Potter we thought it might be fun and yes, as a way to distract ourselves from the sadness, if we thought of the perfect cast of Bollywood actors to take over the roles of the films. Some say never should the two meet and we know it will never happen, but we thought it would be really fun to see who we could come up with! We originally thought we would just have one actor for each character but each time someone said, ‘Oooh, he would be perfect’ or “Yes! She has to play….’, we had to add another to the list. Since in the end we could not decide we thought we would list them all for your reading pleasure.

We now present our wish list of who we would love to play some of our favourite characters in the Harry Potter films.
