I’ve asked this question a bunch of times before, I know. But there are always new movies/TV shows out there, right? So it makes sense to keep asking it.
Book/Movie/TV Show, whole thing, don’t care which version, but Shahrukh should definitely play Dracula himself. And a sexy but evil version. I don’t like the “oh, poor Dracula, he’s just misunderstood” version of the story because I feel like it forgives his sins. But I will take the “he is a force for evil and one of his powers is sexiness” version any day. Make it modern day, make it Victorian, set it in Europe, set it in India, anything would work. Give us our brave band of men (and women, awesome Mina) fighting against him, intercut with Shahrukh being sexy and evil and saying “I don’t drink….wine”.
Another book/TV show thing. Middle-aged tough cop who really knows his job and knows the city, and has a dark past (mother was murdered leaving him to be raised in orphanages and foster care, military history, broken marriage). But is also an involved smart father to his teenage daughter, who both respects and likes him. That sort of toughness combined with intelligence and competence and knowing just how to work within the rules, plus the dark anger in the past, plus the loving father of a teenage daughter, is all PERFECT for Shahrukh!!!!
I’m getting a bit obscure now. This is a super delightful 1950s Tracy-Hepburn movie. She is the whipsmart head of a reference library at a large media corporation. He is the brilliant computer scientist brought in to design the computer that will replace her and her staff. It’s a romance between two extremely intelligent people who aren’t that good at romance (Hepburn has a long term boyfriend but he is using her to write his reports and she is pathetically grateful, Tracy is immediately intrigued by her intelligence but doesn’t know how to ask her for a date). And it’s a romance between two middle-aged people who are a bit set in their ways. And I really really want to see Shahrukh in glasses and poorly fitting clothes playing a computer scientist genius.
