Disney is set to continue its trend of creating live-action remakes of classic hits and after filming live action Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast, the next in line is Aladdin. Famous director Guy Ritchie has been roped in for the project, however, they have run into a tiny snag- they are unable to finalise actors for the roles of Aladdin and Jasmine.

Around 2,000 actors from around the world have so far auditioned for the roles but the makers are to finalise characters. The beloved children's tale revolves around a boy in the fictional city of Agrabah who meets a genie and his fate turns around. Based on the story, the actors for both the roles should have a middle-eastern look and who better than Indians?
Twitterati gave their suggestions for who should portray the leading roles in the live-action remake of Aladdin, do you agree?

In all seriousness. This is what it's come to. They're having trouble filling the role of ALADDIN if Dev Patel or Riz Ahmed don't take it. https://t.co/GsfBfIB801— Sopan Deb (@SopanDeb) July 11, 2017
