Saara sheher usse Leo ke naam se jaanta hai. Leonardo DiCaprio was once everybody’s heartthrob and is now everyone’s hero. He has amazed us with some brilliant performances in fantastic movies. In fact, never before has the support for an actor to win an Oscar been as strong as it was for DiCaprio earlier this year. He has achieved various milestones in his career and as his die-hard fans, we have only one regret: we have never seen Leo in a Bollywood movie.
Today is Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday. Now while it is his turn to make wishes, it is us who are hoping that Leo would turn to Bollywood. He would make a jabardast hero and here’s why:
He is the perfect romantic hero.
One thing’s for sure, if Leo DiCaprio entered Bollywood, actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor will be out of jobs. All the romantic roles will be grabbed by the Titanic star. Leo bina love story, ae dil hai mushkil.
He will go lengths to win his love.
Raj may have traveled from London to India to get Simran back, but Romeo drank poison to be with Juliet. If that is not enough, Jack even saved Rose’s life by sacrificing his own. He is so romantic, duniya ki koi bhi taqat usse tumse judaa nahi kar sakti.
He fought bear and won.
Move over Rajini, Leo has stepped into the game. He has fought an angry mama bear in The Revenant and survived. Even Rohit Shetty would agree that this is impossible. But ek baar jo Leo ne commitment kar di, fir voh apne aap ki bhi nahi sunta.
He is a rich good-looking playboy.
Gora hai? Abs hai? Paisa hai? Hero material hai! Sure, Leo DiCaprio came from humble backgrounds, but his struggle to be a top Hollywood actor deserves credit, and will make a perfect Bollywood movie. Maybe this could be the start of his Bollywood career.
Nothing can bring him down.
Leo DiCaprio does not give up. He will be mauled by a bear, nearly drown in the river, and still find the strength to fight his enemies. He will travel through different time portals and dreams to get what he wants. Leo ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai!
He can do all kinds of genres.
When it comes to being the master of all trades, Leonardo certainly has the upper hand. Action, comedy, thriller, romance – he has done them all. So other than SRK, even actors like Akshay and Aamir need to prepare for alternate careers. Kyunki Leo kisi se kam nahi!
He does not need a heroine to complete him.
Who can you cast opposite The Wolf? Alia? Kareena? Deepi
Salman ke paas gaadi hai, Shah Rukh ke paas bangla hai, Saif ke paas paisa hai…Leo ke pass kya hai? Leo ke paas, Leo ke paas…Oscar hai. Happy Birthday, Leonardo DiCaprio! Hope to see you in Bollywood soon.
