Hollywood star Will Smith expressed his desire to work in a Bollywood film while speaking at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2018. The Grammy Award winner has a diverse range of films under his belt and now he wants to try his hands in the India film industry as well.
During his conversation with Farhan Akhtar, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor recounted an earlier incident about meeting former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachachan 15 years ago and their discussion about doing a project together. “But it never happened. Perhaps I would do a film with her,” said Smith, who finds the contrast in India “beautiful”. He also quipped that “One of the things on my bucket list is to be in a Bollywood dance sequence.”
Farhan took advantage of the situation and taught Smith some bhangra moves, which the Men In Black actor proudly showed off to the audience at the summit:
Later Farhan posted a video on Instagram letting the world see Smith’s bhangra skills and we must appreciate his playful spirit. “What an awesomely and effortlessly cool man .. won all hearts with his candour and wit .. and boy, can he bust some Bhangra moves .. #funtimes chatting with willsmith at the #htleadershipsummit… [sic],” Farhan wrote on Instagram.

Smith has also passed on the interest to his kid, Jaden Smith. In December last year, the talented actor of The Karate Kid fame also tweeted his desire to act in a Bollywood movie. “I Wanna Be In A Bollywood Movie [sic],” Junior Smith wrote.
