KARACHI: We know Shah Rukh Khan is the undisputed king of Bollywood but if his films were to be made in Pakistan, our actors would have definitely given him a run for his money! Here’s a list of 10 Pakistani actors who could have played the famous roles played by SRK.
1. Humayun Saeed in Devdas
Humayun, the most admired and talented Pakistani actor, is very capable of pulling off the ‘Devdas’ look. The versatile actor can give King Khan tough competition!
2. Ahsan Khan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
Ahsan Khan can definitely ace the role of an elder brother, a loving husband and can portray unconditional affection towards his mother. He is a suitable replacement to play ‘Rahul’ in the film.
3. Mikaal Zulfiqar in Kal Ho Na Ho
Mikaal Zulfiqar is the only Pakistani actor who can pull off the line “Kya pata, kal ho na ho” along with giving a convincing performance as ‘Aman Mathur.’
4. Shaan in Don
“Kyun ke Shaan ko pakarna mushkil hee nahin, na mumkin hai.” Enough said.
5. Sheheryar Munawar Siddiqui in Kuch Kuch hota hai
The flirtatious role of ‘Rahul’ can only be played by the charming Sheheryar. From giving friendship bands to every girl around to settling down with ‘the one’, he is spot on for this role.
6. Adnan Siddiqui in Chak De India
Adnan Siddiqui has the talent, the ‘angry young man’ look and the ability to play a hockey coach which SRK played. You can almost imagine him giving his team an inspirational speech.
7. Faisal Qureshi in Mohabbatein
One of the most loving and expressive actors in the industry, Faisal Qureshi will convince the audience with his performance if given the role of ‘Raj Aryan’.
8. Hamza Ali Abbasi in Jab Tak Hai Jaan
The perfect choice to play Samar Anand would be none other than Hamza Ali Abbasi. The charismatic Pakistani actor will play the role of a struggling immigrant in London and later a bomb disposal expert very well.
9. Shammoon in Darr
The popular villain of the Pakistani industry, Shamoon is the only one who comes to our mind when we think of the famous dialogue, “K..k..k..Kiran.”
10. Fawad Khan in DDLJ
Heart throb of the Pakistani industry, Fawad can play the character of Raj better than anyone. You can almost imagine him saying the famous dialogue, “Palat..” from the most played and loved movie, Dilwale Dulhanya Le Jayen Ge.
