The ‘Men in Black’ star Will Smith recently expressed his desire to act in a Bollywood film. And wait, he has one more wish, as ‘One of the things in his bucket list is to be on a Bollywood dance sequence’, Smith says. But who will be Smith’s heroin? Now the twist comes here. This Hollywood actor-producer wished to do a film with Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan whom he met 15 years ago.
So, the Bollywood directors, producers and our own Bachchan bahu are you listening to this?
The Hollywood star was in conversation with actor-musician Farhan Akhtar at Hindustan Times Leadership Summit recently. During that conversation, he also spoke about having a Bollywood dance sequence with Rai Bachchan on his bucket list.
“One of the things on my bucket list is to be on a Bollywood dance sequence. I met Aishwarya 15 years ago and we had conversation about doing something together but that never happened. Perhaps I would do a film with her” said the ‘Man’ in black at that event.
Smith is a bhangra enthusiast and he loves bhangra grooves.
And so, our Mr. musician Akhtar made the wisest use of this opportunity to teach him some bhangra moves. In between the conversation of the interview Farhan and Smith enjoyed some bhangra steps, at that event.
Farhan also shared a video of them doing the signature bhangra steps and the Hollywood actor seems to be acting in it. If you don’t want to go on our words, then just have a look at the video for yourself.
Well, this is not the first time Will’s proven himself to be a bhangra enthusiast.
Earlier, in 2016, Smith was spotted busting a move with Akshay Kumar at the Rustam success party and even tried some pujabi dance steps and bhangra-thumkas at the bright premiere in Mumbai.
This American actor, producer, songwriter and rapper is also known as the most powerful actor in Hollywood. He has been praised for his performances in ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’, ‘Hitch’, ‘I am legend’, ‘I’, ‘Robot’, ‘Independence Day’ and ‘Men in Black’. Smith also essayed the role of Muhammad Ali in his biopic named ‘ALI’.
Talking about the film ‘ALI’ Smith said, ‘Playing Muhammad Ali was most formative time in his career, which changed him forever’. He was sitting next to Muhammad Ali when he was watching ‘Ali’ the movie for the first time. For an hour Ali didn’t moved and Smith thought Ali was supposed to not liking it and there was a scene where Smith has to scream in the film. So suddenly, Ali turned to his wife and asked her ‘Was I that crazy?’ and then he turned to Smith and said ‘Man you have done a great job’, added the reel-life Ali aka the Hollywood actor Will Smith while speaking to Farhan about his film ‘Ali’ for which he has been nominated twice for the Best Actor category in Oscars.
Smith has been nominated for five times Golden Globe Awards and two Academy Awards, and bagged four Grammy. The internationally famed actor was last seen in ‘Bright’ in 2017 and currently busy in hosting the television documentary series ‘One Strange Rock’ in National Geographic.
