SRK to Play Walter White in Remake of ‘Breaking Bad’


Mumbai: Remaking Hollywood films has become a regular feature in Bollywood over the years. But Shah Rukh Khan is planning something different. In a first of its kind, he is planning to remake the famous international TV series Breaking Bad into a Hindi film, as revealed by him to Indian Express.

He said he isn’t keen on making it into a TV series as he feels the Indian TV audience won’t accept its content that features mafia and drugs. The actor has also hinted that he would be playing the lead character of Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston in the original. SRK hasn’t made any official announcement about the project yet.

“I want to make it into a movie. As a series, it is too evolved to come on Indian television. The Indian audience won’t be accepting of meth, drugs and the mafia. But the story of a man who is going to die and takes a chance to save his family is a good premise for a feature film. I have asked some people who have said that they would get me the rights. I am at that age when it will be interesting to take up such a role,” SRK said.
