English actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who has starred in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ recently opened up about the connection he shares with India and also revealed which Indian actor he thought should join the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

On being asked who among Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan could potentially feature in the superhero movies, Cumberbatch said, “Khan is great.” Shah Rukh Khan has played the role of a superhero in the 2011 film ‘Ra. One,’ directed by Anubhav Sinha, while Hrithik Roshan played the lead role in the superhero franchise ‘Krrish.’

The Doctor Strange star also spoke about his six-month long stay in India during his late teens. “I love your country, I love your culture and cultures. It feels like I was there almost a lifetime ago, in my late teens for six months of teaching, exploring and travelling as well. I'd love to have an excuse to come back and if that's to interact with the first Indian superhero, bring it on,” he was quoted as saying by a news agency.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, directed by Sam Raimi, hit the screens across India today (May 6) in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. The sequel to Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange (2016) also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Rachel McAdams.
