Smith wants to act   with Aishwarya in a Bollywood film

New Delhi: Actor Will Smith, one of the most popular Hollywood stars in India, Saturday said it is a part of his wishlist to work in a Bollywood masala entertainer with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

"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," Smith said.

Smith, whose diverse filmography ranges from Ali, Pursuit of Happyness and Ray to Independence Day, I Am Legend and Suicide Squad, said he loves being in India as he finds the contrast "very beautiful".

"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," he said.

The actor considers Ali, the 2001 biographical sports drama, a pivotal part of his career.

He believes that the film marked his transformation as a performer.

"Playing Muhammad Ali was the most formative time in my career. It changed me forever," he said.

He recalled the reaction of boxing legend to the film.
