Brad Pitt: Future Bollywood star?
In a recent interview with Indian news agency IANS, the 48-year-old actor proclaimed, “Indian cinema seems to be growing very well at its own pace. I would love to work in a Bollywood film as there is so much drama and color in the films there. The filmmaking, I hear, has evolved a lot in India, and of late we have witnessed some good films making a presence at the Oscars and the world stage.”
He went on to add: “That tells you a lot about the quality of the actors and the films. You never know when I might decide to work in a Bollywood film and do one of those dance numbers with the whole crew in the backdrop.”
The Hollywood heartthrob missed his opportunity to woo Bollywood actress and 1994 Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the 2007 epic Troy, and is now revealing he would love to work with her. “Given a chance, I would like to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, because she's a versatile actor. She is one of the most popular actresses of Bollywood, who has achieved huge acclaim in the west for her style, beauty and acting skills. I think we missed an opportunity to be cast together for Troy.” He said.
He also wished “Saifeena”, India’s “Brangelina,” the best on their upcoming nuptials. “To be honest, I really think Saif [Ali Khan] and Kareena [Kapor] can be called Bollywood's sexiest couple so far. I am glad to know they are getting married soon. I wish them all the success for a happy married life.”
Pitt’s newest film, a mob drama called "Killing Them Softly", will hit theaters in India on October 5th.
