The Big Bang Theory is considered to be one of the best Sitcoms to be ever made and there is no doubt about it. It is also the longest Sitcom ever made. I have watched it more than once(Yes I know, I have a lot of free time). But what would it look like if The Big Bang theory was made in India? Which characters would be perfect for the cast. Let’s see.
- Penny Hofstader
There are many talented actresses in the Indian cinema but I think Priyanka Chopra will perfectly be able to do justice to the character of Penny. The character of Penny is a bubbly girl with a certain sass and a lot of sex appeal to herself and who better than Priyanka Chopra to play this part. Penny is also a physically strong woman.
- Amy Farrah Fowler
This would be one of the trickiest castings of all. The character of Amy is shown as someone who is quite robotic in the beginning but then turn into recent puberty hit college or high school girl while maintaining the super-intelligent aura. Amy falls in love with Sheldon Cooper in the show, another very tricky casting. So, for this role, I think that the only actress who can do justice would be Vidya Balan. She has the exceptional talent to pull off anything she wants.
- Bernadette Rostenkowski
The character of Bernie in the show begins as an innocent yet intelligent girl who is a colleague of Penny’s. She starts off as a sweet, loving and innocent character who speaks sarcastic thing very innocently but as the series progresses, she starts saying them purposely while being cute. Nusrat Bharucha is the perfect spicy mix who can be cute and mean scary at the same time.
- Howard Joel Wolowitz
The first name that came to my head when I thought of Howard was Shakti Kapoor. No no, not because of the looks but because of the creepy way Howard flirts with almost all the women he lays eyes on in the show. But let’s face it, there is only one person who can do justice to his comically heightened sense of humour along with his intelligent and quirky personality. It is Vir Das. They are practically the same height and we all know how humorous he is.
- Rajesh Koothrapali
Kunal Nayyar is practically suitable to play his role in an Indian version of the Big Bang Theory but as he is the only foreigner in the core group of the cast, I was thinking we cast a foreigner in the Indian cast. Rahul Gandhi would be perfect for the part but let’s face it, he would be the Prime Minister if he could remember his lines properly. Rajesh Koothrapali is a character who is shown as someone who struggles with women throughout the season and also someone who is awkward around people. Omi Vaidya can play a perfect foreigner who is awkward around people and I think will do perfect justice to the role.
- Leonard Hofstadter
Leonard is the protagonist alongside Sheldon Cooper and Penny. He seems to be the only normal and sane one emotionally amongst the core group of scientists. I think Mr Perfectionist can perfectly be able to pull this off. Leonard being the protagonist goes through a lot of things throughout the series and his character is also very expressive. And also, Aamir Khan is shorter than his counterpart( Priyanka Chopra) which suits perfectly according to the plot of the show.
- Sheldon Cooper
Jim Parsons in The Big Bang Theory is irreplaceable in the true sense. That man has done impeccable acting in the show and has won multiple awards for the same. I literally took days to finalise who can play Sheldon Cooper in this show and I have come up with an answer. Whether or not can he pull off such acting is not known but Sumeet Vyas has a remarkable resemblance with Jim Parsons and both of their smiles are beautiful. (Tripling reference).
