Bringing a powerful allegory of time with mind-melting visual effects, signature Marvel panache, and multiverse exploration, Benedict Cumberbatch starrer Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar in English, Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu.

But, ever wondered, what would it be like if Doctor Strange were a Bollywood actor? With their desi charm and dramatic dialogues, Bollywood talent can make up for a perfect Indian version of this Marvel movie directed by Sam Raimi. 

Hrithik as Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch)

Doctor Strange is a superhero who travels across the multiverse, meeting creatures and people from dimensions other than his own. Bollywood’s Hrithik Roshan has done many roles in which he has taken on a supernatural proclivity, namely in Koi Mil Gaya and the Krrish franchise.

Suhana as America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez)

America Chavez is a teenager among adults, but she possesses a bold, refreshing viewpoint that brings fun to otherwise serious circumstances. 

Arshad as Wong (Benedict Wong)

Wong is mighty and a fantastic supporting resource for Doctor Strange, having fought many battles by his side. Arshad Warsi, known for his talent at portraying sidekicks, particularly in Munnabhai MBBS, would be suitable for the role of Wong. 

Tabu as Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen)

The Scarlet Witch is a complicated, potent antagonist, and who better to play her than Tabu. Tabu has previously played robust, beautiful, and layered negative characters.

Kiara as Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams)

Christine Palmer is Doctor Strange’s close friend and ex-girlfriend. She is no-nonsense and efficient, with an edge of humorous wit that makes her a dynamic watch on screen. 

Kartik as Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) 

Kartik Aaryan recently in an interview expressed his desire to be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and said “They really know how to create magic.”
