In the original, Jesse is played by Hollywood star Aaron Paul.

The show tells the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, who, with his former student Jesse, turns to a life of crime, producing and selling crystallized methamphetamine to secure his family's financial future before he dies.

When asked if there is any Hollywood show, whose Indian adaptation he would want to be part of, Rajkummar told PTI, "I love 'Breaking Bad'. It would be great if it gets made here. I would want to play Jesse in it."

In an interview a few months ago, superstar Shah Rukh Khan had revealed he wanted to remake "Breaking Bad" in India.

Rajkummar said if it happens, he would definitely approach Shah Rukh to take him in the remake.

The actor, 30, also expressed his desire to go to Hollywood.

"I would love to go international, be it films or television. Hollywood brings more audience, wider reach... As an actor I want to work everywhere."
