In an interview with The Times of India, Jinder Mahal said, "I would love to do a Bollywood film. I think it would be a great opportunity to showcase my talent to a whole new audience. I'm a big fan of Indian cinema, and I think I could bring something unique to the table."
Mahal is not the first WWE star to consider a career in Bollywood. In the past, wrestlers such as The Great Khali and The Undertaker have appeared in Indian films. However, Mahal would be the first WWE star to make a full-fledged transition to Bollywood. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Dave Bautista are two other former WWE stars who have successfully transitioned to acting, with both of them starring in major Hollywood films.
It remains to be seen whether Mahal will ever get the chance to make his Bollywood debut. However, his interest in the Indian film industry is certainly a sign of the growing popularity of WWE in India.
In addition to Mahal, there are a few other WWE stars who could potentially make a successful transition to Bollywood. These include:
- Drew McIntyre: McIntyre is another former WWE Champion who is of Indian descent. He has also spoken about his desire to star in a Bollywood film.
- The Rock: The Rock is arguably the most successful wrestler-turned-actor of all time. He has starred in a number of major Hollywood films, including "Fast & Furious" and "Jumanji." If The Rock ever decided to make a Bollywood film, it would be a major event.
- John Cena: Cena is another popular WWE star who has crossover appeal. He has starred in a number of Hollywood films, including "Blockers" and "Trainwreck." Cena could also be a successful Bollywood actor.
If Mahal does decide to pursue a career in Bollywood, he will have a lot of competition. Bollywood is one of the biggest film industries in the world, and there are many talented actors and actresses vying for roles. However, Mahal has the advantage of being a household name in India, and he is also a charismatic and talented performer.
It will be interesting to see if Mahal does decide to make the transition to Bollywood. If he does, he could become the next WWE star to achieve success in the world of cinema. Only time will tell if any of these WWE stars will ever make the transition to Bollywood. However, the interest is certainly there, and it could be a major development in the future.
