One of the most talented American actor, producer, comedian, rapper and songwriter, Will Smith is in town and showed some bhangra moves as he spoke about having a Bollywood dance sequence on his bucket list, while also opening up on his childhood, struggle as an artist, dealing with failure and setting the goal for himself to be the best movie star in the world. 

The American actor was in conversation with Bollywood actor-singer-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar at the 16th Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in New Delhi on Saturday.

Farhan along with video wrote, "What an awesomely and effortlessly cool man .. won all hearts with his candour and wit .. and boy, can he bust some Bhangra moves .. #funtimes chatting with @willsmith at the #htleadershipsummit .. #gotoguywhenaliensattack." 

Will Smith spoke to Farhan Akhtar about his Bollywood ambitions. "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," the actor said. 

Will Smith also talked about making a career shift from music to acting. “My transition from music to films wasn’t really a choice. IRS took all my stuff and I moved to LA. I got rid of everything in Philadelphia. I was broke and our next album flopped. I had gone from having millions of dollars to going broke,” he said.

He also talked about creating a life for his kids. “My childhood wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be. There was violence as I grew up. So I wanted certain things for my kids. The family me and my wife have created is the coming together of a 40-year old dream. I always wanted to get married and have a happy family,” he said.

Smith is famous for his massive hits like Men In Black, Independence Day and Hitch.
