Dwayne Johnson loves the world of Bollywood and doesn't rule out working in a Bollywood film someday. The Hollywood star says working on an Indian action movie would be fun. In fact, he already has few friends from India’s Tinseltown. Dwayne has worked with Indian star Priyanka Chopra Jonas in “Baywatch”, and bonded with Varun Dhawan through social media when the Indian star appreciated his movie and one of his positive gestures.
So, can we expect you to head to Bollywood soon? “I wouldn’t rule that out. I have a lot of respect for Bollywood and the history of Bollywood,” Dwayne told IANS here while promoting his upcoming film “Jumanji: The Next Level”,” he replied.
Referring to Varun, Hollywood’s biggest action star said: “He is such a big fan. I’ve interacted with him before on social media. And I know, he is a big star in India… Yeah, so maybe one day, you never know, you could see me in a Bollywood action movie. That’d be a lot of fun because I know that we have a lot of wonderful fans in India, and we have talked about that. So, maybe one day (you could see me in a Bollywood movie).”
