Hollywood actor Brad Pitt had missed an opportunity to work with actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the film "Troy" and now the actor wants to work in Bollywood.

Pitt has joined the list of other Hollywood actors who earlier expressed their desire to work in the Hindi film industry. The actor now wants to surprise is fans by doing a Bollywood dance number.


"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 colour in the films there," Pitt told IANS in an email interview.

"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 said.

The growing presence of Bollywood actors in Hollywood film industry have attracted international interest in India's cinematic offerings.

"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," joked Pitt.

The 48-year-old actor might have been interested in doing a dance number in Bollywood film, but the actor is also fond of a certain Indian beauty - Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

During the interview the actor confessed that he wants to work with the "Most Beautiful Women in the World."

"Given a chance, I would like to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan because she's a versatile actor. She has worked brilliantly in films like 'The Mistress of Spices', 'The Last Legion', 'The Pink Panther 2' and 'Provoked' to name a few," said Pitt.

"She is one of the most popular actresses of Bollywood, who achieved huge acclaim in the west for her style, beauty and acting skills. I think we missed an opportunity to be cast together for the movie 'Troy," he added.

The 38-year-old actress was reportedly offered the role of Briseis in the film, but apparently she turned down the offer and it went to Rose Byrne.
