Who's the Fairest of them all?

By Anant Mathur (March 30, 2012)

The Hollywood film "Mirror Mirror" adapted from the classic Fairy Tale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" is releasing this Friday, it stars Julia Roberts as The Queen and Lily Collins (daughter of british musician Phil Collins) as Snow White.

We've grown up hearing Fairy Tales and many times some of us have even pictured ourselves as some of these characters. But have you ever wondered which Bollywood celebrity would play the roles of certain Fairy Tale characters if they were given the opportunity. 

Well, wonder no more, I'm going to enlighten you (or freak you out) by sharing my list: 

Pinocchio (Pinocchio) - Shahid Kapoor - Because he still looks like a "real boy". 

Sleeping Beauty (Sleeping Beauty) - Sonam Kapoor - She could play this part in her sleep, literally.

Prince (Sleeping Beauty) - Emran Hashmi - Who better than the "serial kisser" to wake a sleeping beauty. 

Rapunzel (Rapunzel) - Asin - Her beautiful hair speaks plenty - the makers of Lux would agree! 

Pied Piper (The Pied Piper of Hamelin) - Shahrukh Khan - A man who can lead children to the cinema halls to see a useless film like Ra.One can lead them anywhere. 

The Little Mermaid (The Little Mermaid) - Amrita Rao - Mermaids, supposedly, live for over 300 years. Amrita means "Immortal" - it's a no-brainer.

Rumpelstiltskin (Children's and Household Tales
) - Aditya Chopra - There's no one else in tinsel ville who makes such costly deals.

Belle (Beauty and the Beast) - Priyanka Chopra - It's simple, her name means beauty.

King Midas (King Midas and his Golden Touch) - Amitabh Bachchan - Because everything Big B touches... turns to gold. 

Cinderella (Cinderella) - Katrina Kaif - She has what it takes to be the belle of the ball.

Prince (Cinderella) - Salman Khan - It's only fair, if Katrina is to play Cinderella, he plays her fella.

Red Riding Hood (Little Red Riding Hood) - Vidya Balan - After seeing her in "The Dirty Picture", No one will argue how good she looks in red.

Frog Prince (The Frog Prince) - Saif Ali Khan - If you're gonna kiss frogs to find a prince then he's the one every girl probably dreams of - who better to portray the from prince than the Nawaab of Pataudi.

This post wouldn't be complete if we didn't do some characters from SNOW WHITE:

Snow White (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) - Kareena Kapoor - Isn't she the fairest of them all (at least in Bollywood)?

Prince Charming (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
) - Abhishek Bachchan - If nothing else, one thing Abhishek has ample of is... Charm.

Evil Queen (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
) - Ekta Kapoor - Come on, you saw that one coming.

The Mirror (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
) - Karan Johar - He's the perfect side kick to Ekta Kapoor, afterall, they are producing a film together.
