The Karate Kid (2010) is one of the most popular Hollywood movies based on the ancient Chinese art of karate. The movie revolves around an African American boy called Dre who is forced to move into China because of his mother’s job. However, the land seems strange to him and he feels like a fish out of the water.

Not to mention, that none of the kids is friendly towards him. After a chance encounter with their maintenance man and willing to stand up against his bully, Dre decides to learn karate and also participate in a tournament. If this Hollywood movie is remade in Bollywood, here’s a list of actor who might be perfect for the roles.
