Chris Hemsworth has garnered universal acclaim for his strapping charisma in and as Thor.

The Australian actor reprises his role and rivalry with his adopted brother, Loki in its sequel, Thor: The Dark World on November 8.

Lending Thor a perfect blend of arrogance, might and vulnerability, there’s no denying Hemsworth’s contribution to the part.

BUT, now here’s a wild thought, what if Thor was set in Bollywood? Which of our heroes would be top contenders to play the Norse God of Thunder?

We’ll spoil you for choice.

Click through the slide show and vote at the end.

Salman Khan

Salman Khan may not have had much luck playing a blustering warrior in Veer but his innate cockiness and well-built physique are a seamless fit for Thor.

Hrithik Roshan

With his Greek God looks and India’s most successful hero designation, there’s little Hrithik Roshan needs to work on.

Except, maybe, beef up a little to play a swaggering version of desi Thor.

Shah Rukh Khan

The regal superstar is known to a proud disposition at all times and a bulky bod, whenever required for a role. 

He should have no trouble doing yet another Don, this time in costume.

Siddharth Malhotra

Student of the Year’s dashing Kukkad showed his mettle in face-offs rather promisingly for Karan Johar’s campus caper.

But can his chiseled body bear the weight of Thor’s hammer?

Sushant Singh Rajput

He’s emerged as 2013’s most terrific surprise package with back-to-back impressive performances in Kai Po Che and Shuddh Desi Romance.

Can he pull off a mythical God?

Ranveer Singh

Ranveer Singh’s bodacious avatar in Ram Leela is making a lot of noise these days.

His boastful, pompous manners is a lot more close to what Thor, never so much for humility, is all about.

John Abraham

There’s never been a question mark about his rippling muscles. Lately, his sensible choice in making movies is serving him well too.

Would he be convincing as a superhero commanding the forces of natures?

Arjun Kapoor

Speaking of pompous, Arjun Kapoor’s haughty ways in both Ishaqzaade and Aurangzeb are typically bad boy stuff.

Work on the rough edges; add some poise and polish and he could pass off as God, if only, make-believe.

Vidyut Jamwal

We’ve all witnessed Vidyut Jamwal’s prowess at flexing those seriously toned abs and beating the daylights out of baddies in Force and Commando.
Maybe he’s just what Loki needs to be afraid of.

Farhan Akhtar

Hemsworth put on about 20 pounds to look the part of Thor. Farhan Akhtar worked out his butt to embody athlete Milkha Singh.

Commitment is what Thor needs and the director turned actor is a master of the game.
