Twenty years ago, when most of us 90’s kids were still wetting our beds or running around the neighbourhood playing hide and seek or something, JK Rowling rolled out the first book which drove us straight into the magical world of Hogwarts. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone introduced the world to the wizarding trio of Harry Ron and Hermione, and most of our favourite characters, from Professor Snape to Professor McGonagall to Sirius Black to Rubeus Hagrid and Draco Malfoy.
In 2017, we at Scroll Droll reimagined what the cast of the Harry Potter would look like if it was made in Bollywood. Here are some of our favourite Harry Potter characters reimagined in Bollywood.
The Nephew Who Lived – Imran Potter
The Dumbest Witch of Her Age – Hermione Bhatt
The Son of Udit – Ron Narayan
The Quarter Blood Prince – Snape Menon
The Greatest Wizard in Bollywood – Naseeruddin Percival Dumbledore
The Mad Queen – Kangana Lestrange
He who was Always on Drugs – Voldemort Baba
Posh Cat Lady – Professor Minerva Azmi
The Prisoner from Wasseypur – Sirius Siddiqui
The Cutest Half-Giant – Satish Shagrid
So, that was our take on “What if Harry Potter Was made in Bollywood?” Let us know what you think of this reimagined cast, and which B-Town actors would you choose to be cast as Harry Potter characters in the comments section.
