Hollywood superstar Will Smith is in India wherein he attended the 16th edition of Hindustan Times Leadership Summit with Farhan Akhtar. The actor talked about everything from movies to almost working with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. But, Farhan took the charge to make the star groove on some Punjabi beats.
Sharing a video from the summit, Farhan Akhtar is seen giving Bhangra lessons to Will Smith and how easily the Hollywood superstar followed the steps. “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 .. #gotoguywhenaliensattack,” he wrote alongside the video.
When asked about a possible plan to work in Bollywood, Will Smith, “One of the things on my bucket list is to be on a Bollywood dance sequence. I met Aishwarya 15 years ago, we had conversations about doing something together but never happened. Perhaps I would do a film with her.”
The Men In Black star also talked about his career shifted from being a rapper to a TV star to a movie superstar. “My transition from music to films wasn’t really a choice. IRS took all my stuff and I moved to LA. I got rid of everything in Philadelphia. I was broke and our next album flopped. I had gone from having millions of dollars to going broke,” he said.
On the work front, Farhan Akhtar has released a couple of his original singles. He will be next seen in a real life story inspired film which is tentatively titled The Sky Is Pink. The film will star Priyanka Chopra and Zaira Wasim.
