Will Smith goes Bollywood
In his first trip to India this week, Will Smith helped launch an English-language movie channel called Pix. While there, he made an appearance on "Indian Idol," India's version of "American Idol," picked out his favorite food, and never stopped raving about a certain Indian actress. "Just recently I got to know the number of films Bollywood makes a year -- a whopping 800. And each with its share of song, music, dance and drama," Smith told the Hindustan Times. "I am simply enticed to be part of it." And if he were to do it, he'd want a trailer full of chicken tikka masala and the leading lady to be Aishwarya Rai. "She has a powerful energy," Smith told the Associated Press. "I'd love to work with her." Smith also was impressed by India's most popular actor, Amitabh Bachchan. "I was blown away by the Big B and I want to be known as Big W," Smith said.
