Not often do we get movies that transcend languages and cultures with comfort. ‘Dia’ drops in this category, as the KS Ashoka directorial has awed viewers across the country.
Apart from the sensible and touching story, Dia’s success can be attributed to the performances of the lead actors. While their fresh faces added to the impact, how efficiently each of them got connected themselves to the audience is praiseworthy.
Although in this OTT era, the number of remakes has gone down, ‘Dia’ is a special story that still has scope for a redo. So, in this article, we focus on a few trio’s who can pull off the intense roles of Dia, Adi & Rohit in other languages.
Vicky Kaushal – Deepika Padukone – Ranveer Singh
This trio will be the best option for a Bollywood remake of ‘Dia’. Vicky Kaushal seems fit in the role of Rohit, and Ranveer Singh, as we all know, can excel in an ‘Adi’ type of a character. Deepika Padukone is a quality performer and will do a great job of Dia.
Siddharth Malhotra – Alia Bhatt – Varun Dhawan
If there was ever an opening for the ‘Student of the Year’ actors to re-collaborate, a remake of ‘Dia’ would be very fitting. While Siddharth does have the looks for a girl to have an instant crush on, Varun Dhawan is good with his energetic performances and is getting better in the emotional scenes. Alia Bhatt is a top actress, and to get a role like Dia would be worthy of her skillset.
Naga Chaitanya – Samantha – Allu Arjun
Naga Chaitanya is an improving actor, and a character like Rohit seems fit for him. Samantha is capable of carrying a role like Dia, while Allu Arjun is our pick for his Adi-Esque looks and excellent acting skills.
Tovino Thomas – Sai Pallavi – Dulquer Salman
Sai Pallavi is a powerhouse of talent, and a role like Dia Swaroop will only elevate her to the top of her career. Upcoming hero Tovino Thomas does seem suitable for a silent matured role, while Kerala heartthrob Dulquer Salman is the ablest choice to play Adi.
Harish Kalyan – Megha Akash – Sivakarthikeyan
They may not be A-listers, but these three are terrific actors and could do a decent job if tasked with the ‘Dia’ remake.
