Blackness, meet Bollywood

Will Smith has caught the vision! The former Fresh Prince is visiting India to help launch Sony’s new English-language movie channel (Pix) and, according to reports is hyped up about the Indian film industry.

The actor said he had been "blown away" by the performance of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan - also known as Big B - in the film Sarkar. "I was very impressed with his acting and have decided that from today onwards, I will be known as Big W." -Indo Asian News Service
On the industry:
"I want to educate myself as much as possible. I also want to explore the possibility of a collaboration between both the film industries." -Hindustan Times
Somebody please make sure his education includes the 411 about the Bollymafia. Will ain't never hurt nobody!
In this quote the truth came out. Ish! It's all Aish...
He also gushed that he was a fan of Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai, a former miss world. 'She has a powerful energy. She doesn't have to say anything, she doesn't have to do anything. Whatever she wants to make, I'm there.' -BBC News
I can't hate on a brotha. I got sucked in pretty much the same way...

Man...who thought Bollywood would be so hot in the US?!! We're so slow over here...Aish wasn't a big enough drawcard over here even after the screened Oprah and 60min interviews.

Now, I better check out the rest of your Hrithik posts...for research purposes, you understand...before they disappear.

Will Smith...I never would have EVER thought he would go Bollywood. I wonder how he reacts when the mysterious Bollywood winds start blowing through peoples' hair?
