Tom Hiddleston is a big fan of Shah Rukh Khan. In a recent interview, the latter expressed his desire to see the celebrity portraying a different version of Loki.
With hits like "Pathaan" and "Jawan," Shah Rukh Khan had an incredible 2023, earning over Rs 2000 crore globally. Speaking highly of King Khan, British actor Tom Hiddleston recently declared that Shah Rukh would be the star from Bollywood to portray a Bollywood version of Loki.
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Tom Hiddleston, who is well-known for playing the cunning Norse deity Loki, suggested that Shah Rukh Khan would be ideal for the Bollywood adaptation. "He would be great. He’s a good variant I think", he said.
Tom had mentioned the 'Jawan' actor quite a bit earlier as well. He added that he had watched "Devdas" in the UK and described it as "extraordinary. "I remember it was quite a long time ago now. I remember going to see Devdas. I mean, that’s quite an old film. I remember going to see that at my local cinema, and it was such an extraordinary experience. I would say I have never seen anything like that. So, yeah I remember that very much", he told NDTV.
