In a recent interview, Hugh Jackman who has played the character Wolverine for seventeen years straight, was asked who he would like to see as the next Wolverine. Hugh casually suggested, "Shah Rukh Khan."
The news of this almost broke the internet all over India as X-Men, Wolverine and Shah Rukh fans in our country began to voice their opinions about Hugh Jackman's latest statement. Some liked the idea, some hated it and some were plain amused.
Now, Shah Rukh Khan finally opened up on the debate and admitted that all is well except he needs hair on his chest to play Wolverine.
Hair on the chest lady…need hair on the chest!! Working on it though. Love Hugh & Wolverine. https://t.co/LZKOqhLPdU

Reacting to a blog by a fan, Shah Rukh Khan wrote, "Hair on the chest lady…need hair on the chest!! Working on it though. Love Hugh & Wolverine."
Hugh Jackman first played Wolverine in the year 2000 in the film X-Men. Since then he has made nine appearances as the character, his final being the recently released Logan.
Shah Rukh Khan has previously played a superhero in the film Ra.One, which was a critical failure and a mediocre box-office hit. It remains to be seen if Shah Rukh dons a cape, wears a suit or gets some armored claws for a second time in Bollywood. Or Hollywood...
