The innocence of fairytales has always captured the imagination of
one and all, child or otherwise. While they've come to life in our
subconscious, the silver
screen is perhaps the most successful medium that brings us as close to
these fairytales as possible. It
brings to life the characters on tabloid and gives flight to our
giving it a ride towards infinity. This week BollyCurry is trying its
at sketching for the readers a picture of how the Prince and Princesses
be if they originated from our very own B-Town. So grab some popcorn and
your seat-belts as we take you for a rollercoaster ride through
Bollywood's very own fairyland.
Beauty and the Beast
If our film industry ever decides to recreate
the magic of the story of the simpleton who was compelled to get hitched to a
beast for her father's well-being but ends up transforming him instead, there
would be no one better than the gorgeous Shraddha Kapoor for the role. Kapoor
can effortlessly portray the soft yet courageous Belle. As for the
vicious beast whose heart is ironically filled with the warm and fuzzy
feeling called love, the name that floats to the top of our list is of none other
than that of Arjun Kapoor. Given his career graph, he is qualified brilliantly to play
the hard-edged guy who, despite his rude antics, manages to charm one and all
with the kindness in the wake of his actions. The pair has the potential of
setting ablaze the screen with the intensity of the chemistry they would
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
"Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" There is no answer acceptable other than Snow
White, the damsel as white as snow and as beautiful as they come, who falls
prey to her stepmother's evil intentions of being the most beautiful one
in the world. The tinsel town also has a personalized Snow White in the attractively
innocent Anushka Sharma and a debonair prince in Shahid Kapoor who could kiss
her to life. The audience has been a witness to the couple's stunning pairing
and casting them for this tale would create an alltogether new tale that could
be narrated for years to come.
The Little Mermaid
After incredibly playing a misfit amongst the
royals, the character of the vivacious and fun-loving mermaid who makes a big
sacrifice to reach out to her beloved, without a doubt, can only be portrayed
by the industry's fashionista Sonam Kapoor. Kapoor shall hit the bulls eye when
it comes to playing the red-head beauty Ariel. Her prince Eric, who turns into
a hardcore sailor when storms hit the sea and personifies strength, is best
seen in Gurmeet Choudhary. It may be quite an unusual pairing, but the two
might just surprise people given the fact that they're both talented actors.
Rapunzel was the name given to the wild and
adventurous lass who let go of all inhibitions once she managed to break through
the shackles of the tower she was locked in. All these remind us of an actress
who has excelled in experimenting with different roles, Priyanka Chopra. She's
always had an out-of-the-box thinking and has broken from the restraints of
doing the usual. We'll also tread the unusual by opting for Disney's notorious
thief Flynn opposite Rapunzel instead of the customary prince. For this role,
we have Bollywood's chocolate boy Aditya Roy Kapur, whose boyish charms and
liveliness when put together with Chopra's zest for life shall produce a lethal
effect for the audiences. Gothel will be best portrayed by the yesteryear
actress Rekha whose gusto for beauty only magnifies with every passing day.
The thought of magical fairies coming to bless
your birth with their best wishes leads the mind to think of the
splendour named Jacqueline Fernandes. With naivety caressing her every
Fernandez shall prove to be a serene and soothing sight as Aurora, the
princess while she's asleep, and otherwise. Sidharth Malhotra shall be
gutsy prince who crosses many obstacles, including the forest full of
wake his lady love to the miracles of life. This is one movie we would
advise catching for all those who appreciate the flavour of action in a
Red Riding Hood
Far from your typical romantic fairytale, the
story of the young and carefree girl hopping down the forest with her
Riding Hood seems appropriate in Bollywood only if the girl is no
one but Alia Bhatt. She exudes the perfectly innocent and trusting vibe
to make the perfect Red Riding Hood.
Awaiting the bubble of joy to turn her into his supper is the dangerous
merciless wolf depicted by the devilishly talented Ranveer Singh.
Regardless of the antagonistic nature of his character, Singh can manage
to woo the ladies and
their men too. The sweet yet perilous pairing of the two can be expected
rewrite history in golden letters.
When it comes to the notorious and witty thief
catapulting through the streets of Baghdad with his pet monkey in tow, there's
only Bollywood's mischief master Varun Dhawan who could pull it off. An exceptional blend
of cuteness and naughtiness, Dhawan could slide into the character very
smoothly with ease. On the other hand, Baghdad's princess who never fails to
surprise anyone around her, brave at heart and yet delicate in her demeanour,
Genelia Dsouza is the perfect choice for Jasmine. Dhawan and Dsouza are as
close to chalk and cheese as possible, but the magic that they are capable of
weaving is better left to be seen than talked about.
For the final tale of the day, we have the
most awaited story of the
girl-next-door, the plain-jane Cinderella. Having suffered all her life
at the hands of her evil step-mother and two step-sisters, we believe
Deepika Padukone is
the finest actress to render the joy of breaking through that
Prince Charming who leads her out of the miserable life, who is
fight all and sundry for his lady love and manages to locate her amongst
thousands is none other than the versatile actor Ranbir Kapoor. There is
no doubt that the two make a stunning pair, and we're very sure that
chemistry will only add to the intensity on the screen.
