Quentin Tarantino is a man who needs absolutely no introduction. The filmmaker has taken indie cinema to another level right from his film, Pulp Fiction, which is legit the definition of pop culture now, for many. After giving us masterpieces like Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill (Vol. 1 and 2), Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained, Hateful Eight and 3 more, QT is all set to mesmerize the audience or make them drop their jaw in surprise, in his upcoming film, which happens to be his 9th - Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo Di Caprio, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, and many such brilliant actors on the ensemble, the bar for this one has already been set, very high.

But have you ever wondered what it would be like if QT were to make a film casting actors from our very own, Bollywood? Crazy, right?! So we have narrowed down a few actors who'd certainly make the cut with their persona and acting prowess. Many of them may be from Anurag Kashyap's films because let's face it, Kashyap has completely transitioned into making successful "Tarantinoisque" film for a while now, discovering a handful of skilled actors in the process.

Pankaj Tripathi

A method artist in all the sense, Pankaj would fit into a QT film, like the lost puzzle piece. Pankaj's idiosyncrasies seem to have done wonders for him - his ability to go beyond the written character and adding his personal touches to them, making each of his performances brilliant.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Absolutely no points for guessing this one as Nawaz has proved his mettle time and again, by the types of movies he has done in his multifaceted career. He has played a psychopath in Raman Raghav, king-pin in Sacred Games, a police officer in Raees, situational hero in Gangs Of Wasseypur and many more diverse characters, ceaselessly transforming his identity and molding it on the basis of the directors.

Kay Kay Menon

With his seamless delivery, transforming seemingly any scene with his witty and coy acting with ease, Kay Kay Menon has proved his worth with outstanding performances in movies like Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, Sarkar and Gulaal. And Tarantino is known to focus on comical conversations, carrying a symbolical significance and metaphorical relevance. So, if at all it happens, it would be quite interesting to see Menon use his classic acting chops to portray a character driven with a mental and psychological defect.

Irrfan Khan

This man needs no recommendation. If Tarantino is making a Bollywood movie and if Khan's name didn't cross his mind, he better stick to Hollywood.

Randeep Hooda

A man of few words, this one will let his actions do the talking. Whatever the plot of QT's movie is, he will have a role for Hooda: punches and shots with badass dialogues laced in between.

Saif Ali Khan

Saif's self-awareness of his craft is endearing as if he is tailor-made for a Tarantino flick. He effortlessly got into the character of a Russian mafia - cracking us up with his impeccable comic timing - in Go Goa Gone. He played to perfection the part of the earthy Raja Misra - not the conventional turf of the actor - in Bullett Raja. He stood tall in Phantom, which oscillated between coherence and chaos. In Vishal Bharadwaj's ambitious Rangoon, Saif pulled a powerful performance as the ruthlessly suave Rustom Billimoria. He was convincing as the urbane, middle-aged man trying to mend relationships with his son in Chef. He mouthed sexually explicit dialogues without being sleazy in Kaalakaandi and Sacred Games. Let's not forget Langda Tyagi!? That was phenomenal.

Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan

Let's be honest, Even Tarantino needs a Brad Pitt or a Leonardo DiCaprio and these two, might be perfect. While we agree their recent movies didn't do well at the Box Office, we know for a fact that when it has been asked of them, the men can surely act.

Manoj Bajpayee

Bajpayee is a pioneer in transforming his emotions and innate human subjectivity into his roles. The actor is a favorite of indie film directors such as Ram Gopal Verma and Anurag Kashyap and has a masterful grasp in pulling off grim, gritty and realistic characters. He has been extensively used in stylised violent films and seems a seamless fit in Tarantino's world of neo-noir cinema.

Naseeruddin Shah

If there is anyone who can play the role of Christoph Waltz from Inglourious Bastards, it's this man. Whether it is playing a demented pathological egotist or a wise old man, Mr. Shah fits the bill perfectly.

Vidya Balan

Vidya Balan is one such actor who can pull off any roles with utmost grace. One of the few actresses prioritizing her acting chops over just outer beauty, she is unarguably one of the most intelligent actors working today and can flawlessly grasp Tarantino's twisted sense of humor with dark brutality.


One of the most versatile actors in Bollywood, Tabu is adapt to wearing any character like a second skin. One of the first actresses to play the lead and nail it - both critically and among the audience - Tabu is the dream choice for a Tarantino film for many Indians. She has managed to subtly strike a balance between commercial and critically lauded films, which is also one of Tarantino's specialty.

Jimmy Shergill

Anyone who has seen any of Shergill's movies will tell you that he's a class apart. But for all his panache, he's never got his due. Maybe getting cast in a Tarantino movie could change that.
