"We have no shame, no shame at all."

Ryan Reynolds has said that his Marvel superhero Deadpool would perfectly blend into Bollywood.

The Marvel film was dubbed in Hindi and actor Ranveer Singh had lent his voice to Deadpool in the first standalone film.

Ryan Reynolds was last seen in the action-adventure film Free Guy.

However, the actor said that Deadpool would be a better fit for a Bollywood adaptation.

Ryan said: “Free Guy would be a very good one to adapt for Bollywood.

“I’d say Deadpool though would be a little bit more fun.

“I think it’d be easier for Deadpool to embrace the Bollywood culture.

“Guy in Free Guy is a non-playable character, he exists only in the digital world.

“But Deadpool‘s real flesh and blood so that I think it’d be Deadpool.”

Ryan added that he thinks Hollywood should incorporate the Bollywood art of infusing joy into films.

He said: “I do think that there’s something that Bollywood films have that, you know, Hollywood could certainly use more of.

“And I think that Bollywood is really adept at infusing joy. I mean, real joy into the work.

“And that’s something that, you know, I meant it when, I mentioned it when Free Guy came out that, you know, there are elements that Free Guy was borrowing from Bollywood.”

Ryan further added: “And really, that was joy.

“And, you know, the last several years, certainly over here in North America, have been really challenging for so many people, for so many different reasons.

“And I wanted to make Free Guy. I produced it. I wrote it. I started and I nurtured it.

“I love it. I wanted to make it an antidote to those feelings. I wanted it to feel like joy.

“And so much of what Bollywood puts up on the screen is infused with that in a very organic and very natural way.

“And that’s a tip I took from your incredible industry over there.”

In a promotional video for his latest film Free Guy, Ryan joked and told fans that the film is influenced by Bollywood.

Ryan Reynolds said:

“If you’re wondering whether Hollywood is just mimicking Bollywood… Well, the answer is yes.

“We have no shame, no shame at all.”

Back in 2019, Ryan revealed that he was a fan of Indian culture and cinema.

He said: “Oh my god. I do love Indian culture and films.

“I think there is no greater contribution to cinema than from India.

“When I was a kid I got to see a couple of movies from India. I would love to visit India and meet my fans.”

Ryan Reynolds will next be seen in Red Notice alongside Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson.

The Netflix film is set to release on November 12, 2021.
