Every man, at some point in his life, wishes he could be James Bond. And with the news that Daniel Craig may well be out as 007, there are a whole bunch of actors from London to New Delhi wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Shahrukh Khan become the Seventh James Bond?
Khan’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), Don 2 (2011) and Om Shanti Om (2007). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Khan now is – what next?
Three reasons Shahrukh Khan would be good for the James Bond franchise
- It would clarify that Bond is a rotating identity: If M can be a woman, why can't James Bond be a 55-year-old Indian?
- No other performers could be nearly as cool and broodingly suave as Khan.
- It would give Shahrukh Khan a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
