Will Smith wishes to work in Bollywood films with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan!
Will Smith, whose diverse filmography ranges from Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness and Ray to Independence Day, I Am Legend and Suicide Squad, say he loves being in India as he finds the contrast “very beautiful”.
In conversation with Farhan Akhtar at a session of Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2018, Will Smith said he wants to be on a Bollywood dance sequence. He also stated that he met Aishwarya 15 years ago, had conversations about doing something together but never happened. Perhaps I would do a film with her.
The actor, who recently celebrated his 50th birthday with a bungee jump over the Grand Canyon in the US, said “On any street corner you could cross a thousand years. There could be someone on a brand new cellphone and someone on a cart. The intermingling of the ages and the lifestyle is amazing,”
The actor considers Ali, the 2001 biographical sports drama, a pivotal part of his career and said it marked his transformation as a performer.
“Playing Muhammad Ali was the most formative time in my career. It changed me forever.”
He recalled the reaction of boxing legend to the film. “I was sitting behind Muhammad Ali when he was watching Ali for the first time. For an hour he didn’t move and I thought he hates it.”
