Ram Charan to Priyanka Chopra: Indian actors imagined in a Desi remake of Prime Video’s The Boys

The series, from Sony Pictures Television and Amazon MGM Studios, is all set to return with the upcoming season on June 13, 2024



Ram Charan as Homelander

Ahead of the global premiere of the fourth season of Prime Video’s highly anticipated anti-hero series The Boys, we, as Desis, can’t help but speculate what an Indian version of the high-octane series would look like. Imagine the gritty world of supes recreated in India. Here’s a glimpse into this explosive alternate reality, and which actor from India would perhaps perfectly fit the bill!

Homelander: Ram Charan 

Who better to embody the narcissistic glory hog than the charismatic Ram Charan? He’s got the charm, the intensity, and the action-hero chops to pull off Homelander’s terrifying allure.


Billy Butcher: Ranveer Singh 

With his signature swagger and brooding intensity (Bajirao anyone?), Ranveer Singh would hit the nail in the coffin to breathe life into Butcher’s relentless pursuit of revenge. We can practically see the flying punches and hear the Hindi dialogues dripping with rage.


Hughie: Babil Khan 

Following in his father’s footsteps, Babil Khan would be the perfect choice to inject a youthful vulnerability into Hughie’s journey – from wide-eyed innocence to a hardened fighter.


Starlight: Ananya Panday 

Ananya Panday would deftly bring a fresh-faced idealism to Starlight, perfectly capturing the disillusionment that awaits her in the corrupt world of superheroes.

Frenchie: Diljit Dosanjh 

Diljit Dosanjh’s comedic timing and effortless charisma make him the perfect choice for Frenchie, the tech-savvy and sarcastic weapons dealer.


Kimiko: Wamika Gabbi 

Wamika Gabbi’s fierce screen presence makes her a great fit for Kimiko’s brutal efficiency and hidden depths.


A-Train: Tiger Shroff 

Who else but the lightning-fast Tiger Shroff to play the speedster A-Train? The viewers would definitely be in for some mind-blowing action sequences!


The Deep: Shahid Kapoor 

Shahid Kapoor’s charm can be deceptive, making him ideal to bring The Deep’s descent into depravity to life on screen.

Victoria Neuman: Priyanka Chopra Jonas

Priyanka Chopra’s steely resolve and hidden fire make her the perfect choice for Victoria Neuman, the seemingly harmless politician with a shocking truth.


Sister Sage: Tamannaah Bhatia 

Tamannaah Bhatia would adeptly bring a touch of mystery, along with profound wisdom, perfect to portray Sister Sage. The newest addition to The Seven, Sister Sage is alleged to be Homelander’s greatest weapon in the upcoming season.


Firecracker: Kriti Sanon 

Kriti Sanon’s explosive energy is perfect for essaying the role of Firecracker, the volatile and unpredictable member of The Boys.


This desi dream team would make for a high-octane adaptation of The Boys, filled with Indian masala, heart-wrenching drama, and jaw-dropping action sequences. The Boys is based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, who also serve as executive producers, and developed by executive producer and showrunner Eric Kripke. The series, from Sony Pictures Television and Amazon MGM Studios, is all set to return with the upcoming season on June 13, 2024, in English with dubs in Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam, only on Prime Video.
