A Very Silly Post: If We Were to Remake Tarzan in India, Who Would Play the Leads?

It’s Edgar Rice Burroughs birthday! He wrote the Tarzan books, which I love. And he is from Chicago, which makes him even better.

I already did this for Shahrukh, and I suspect fewer people will care about Hrithik than SRK. But lets see! And this time I am including movies where he doesn’t actually have sex on screen but will have sex shortly after the film ends.
