Disney and Fox are on the verge of completing the deal that transfers all of Fox properties to the former. This also means that X-Men series, primarily a Marvel property but had been sold to Fox, could now be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There are speculations that Disney and Marvel Studios would want to reboot the X-Men series, including the cast (though Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool would be saved for obvious reasons). Which also means that the most popular X-Men of them all, Logan aka Wolverine, would also be recast. Hugh Jackman had done that role in the X-Men series and has been considered eponymous for the character. Hugh Jackman Posts a Workout Video and Fans Are Already Speculating it To be a Wolverine Cameo.
While it seems almost unimaginable to think who can replace Jackman as Logan, Fandom, a popular geek culture website, did a poll on the actors who could play the role. They asked the fans to vote for the actors who they want to see wear the adamantium claws.
After the voting is done, Fandom revealed the shortlisted actors in one of their latest tweets, and whoa! There is an Indian actor in there! Television actor Rajat Tokas, known for his roles in Dharti Ka Veer Yodha Prithviraj Chauhan, Chandra Nandini and Naagin 3, has gotten some of the highest votes. Just check out the tweet below from Fandom that has a picture of him photoshopped with that Wolverine, along with other favourites like Keanu Reeves, Scott Eastwood, Tom Hardy and Daniel Radcliffe.

Ever since this tweet went viral, fans of the beefy actor have been demanding on social media for Marvel to give him an audition as Wolverine. They are using hashtag #RajatTokasWolverineAudition to further their mission.

Even Rajat wants Marvel to give him a chance to prove himself as Logan, as seen in his tweet below -
Need everyone’s help and support, all the more, for me to be able to prove myself,for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Will literally put my soul into this role, push myself beyond my limits to make it come true and bring it to life.

Interestingly, Marvel has not yet announced they are recasting Wolverine yet. Hugh Jackman had last played the character in the critically acclaimed Logan, where the character was killed. This was a way for Jackman to say that he was retiring from the role. However, he had hinted that he might be tempted to return to the role if there is a prospect of going against the Avengers.
