...preferably with Aishwarya Rai!

Hollywood actor and long-time bhangra fan Will Smith shared his hope of acting in a Bollywood film while speaking at a leadership conference in Mumbai today.

The Men In Black star recalled that he met Aishwarya Rai some 15 years ago and they had talked about working on a project together. "But it never happened. Perhaps I would do a film with her," he said.

He added that another dream of his is to perform a Bollywood-style dance: "One of the things on my bucket list is to be on a Bollywood dance sequence."

So his interviewer at the event, Farhan Akhtar, decided to teach him some bhangra moves!

This isn't the first time that Will's proven himself to be a bhangra enthusiast.

He was spotted busting a move with Akshay Kumar at the Rustom success party in 2016 and even tried some Punjabi dance steps at the Bright premiere in Mumbai last year.
