Thor is one of Marvel Cinematic Universe's oldest and the most popular characters. While Chris Hemsworth is more than impressive in his performance as Asgard's descant Thor, one imagines if someone had to replace him as Thor, who could it be? While initially, makers reportedly wondered Daniel Craig could be a great choice, but then his movie commitments made way for Chris Hemsworth. Thor touted to be the god of Asgard, has been an integral part of the Marvel's Superhero Universe.

Hrithik Roshan, often referred to as the 'Greek God' of Bollywood, is famous among movie-goers for his impressive acting chops and good looks. Meanwhile, the actor gears-up for his superhero flick, Krrish's fourth installment. Here are a few reasons why Hrithik Roshan could have been an apt choice for Thor's Indian version. 

Physical Characteristics  

In an old interview with an online portal, Chris Hemsworth revealed that the makers of Thor series wanted an actor who is 6'3" and has a ripped physique. Reports have it that Hemsworth sweated day in and day out in the gym to achieve the desired look for Thor. Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan is also reported as one of the fittest Bollywood actors. His ripped body and agile action sequences in his recently released movie, War, were the talk of the town.
