Shah Rukh Khan wants to play Walter White. Yes, it seems SRK really loved the popular American TV series Breaking Bad, to the point that he now wants to remake it into a film. Speaking to Indian Express, the actor said:

I want to make it into a movie. As a series, it is too evolved to come on Indian television. The Indian audience won’t be accepting of meth, drugs and the mafia. But the story of a man who is going to die and takes a chance to save his family is a good premise for a feature film. I have asked some people who have said that they would get me the rights. I am at that age when it will be interesting to take up such a role.

We did get a hint that the star was hooked on to the brilliant TV series back in 2013, through this tweet by Shah Rukh:

We think SRK will make a mean Walter White, if he plays it right. But without the meth and drugs twist will the desi Breaking Bad be as twisted?
