Ranbir, Hrithik, Ranveer: YOUR pick for 50 Shades of Grey role? VOTE!

The movie adaptation of British author EL James' bestselling erotic novel Fifty Shades Of Grey may star Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson as Christian Grey.

An immensely successful and wealthy entreprenuer, Grey -- who has some serious sexual kinks -- embarks on an  BDSM-fuelled affair with Anastasia Steele (for the uninitiated, BDSM stands for Bondage Dominance Submission Sado Masochism, a sexual fetish that involves role-playing and other acts).

Now, such a film will never find its way to Bollywood.

But we decided to let our imagination run wild, and ask YOU, dear reader, which Bollywood hero would suit the enigmatic and sexy Christian Grey best on screen. Have a look at our suggestions, and vote at the end of the slide show.

Ranbir Kapoor

He's long established there's nothing he can't do.

And who better to play such a myterious character than this part-sweet, part-sexy and all around great actor?

Hrithik Roshan

He may be known as a loving family man in real life but it'd be quite interesting to see this Indian Greek god in a grey character with some seriously dark overtones.

Also, can you think of better way to put that body to use on screen?

Ranveer Singh

Lootera actor Ranveer Singh doesn't mind being labelled a flirt so maybe he won't mind playing this kinky character onscreen either.

If anything, it may solidify his reputation as a sex symbol.

Arjun Rampal

This timeless hottie has taken to playing negative characters with quite a flair.

Ever wonder what he'd be like as Christian Grey?

He defied his good guy image as the morally-corrupt coke-head Devinder Singh Dhillon in Anurag Kashyap's tour de force Dev D in 2009.

If you ask us, he may bring a personal touch to the character.

Shahid Kapur

Let's face it, Shahid Kapur's career-best performance was in Vishal Bhardwaj's snazzy Kaminey, where he played a character with some serious shades of grey.

May be going back to the basics will be of some help to this actor.

Salman Khan

Wouldn't it be exciting to see this Khan, who has played overly positive characters on screen off late, to take up something off the beaten track?

Imran Khan

It may very well be time for Imran Khan to hang up his chocolate hero boots and forge in uncharted territories.

Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar seems like an actor, who could do justice to this role. His strong, tough-guy screen persona would lend the character some credibility.

Emraan Hashmi

And while we are at it, why leave Bollywood's serial kisser out of all the action?

He may have graduated to performance-driven roles and meaty scripts but a little diversion never hurt anybody.
