Hollywood star Will Smith is in India, and he got a taste of 'Bollywood' glamour when he joined a star-studded party hosted by actor Akshay Kumar in Mumbai on Sunday night.

The American actor-singer-producer, best known for films like Independence Day (1996) and Men In Black (1997), is all smiles in some of the photographs that have emerged online, from the party. (Click here for pictures from the party.)

Kumar and Smith seemed to be at ease in each other's company, and looked happy to pose for the cameras. Their jovial mood reflected in the images.

Kumar was dressed smartly in a black shirt teamed with white trousers, while the Suicide Squad (2016) star was seen wearing a striped T-shirt in hues of red, black and white.

Akshay Kumar hosted the party for his friends to enjoy the successful run of three of his films – Airlift, Housefull 3 and Rustom, all of which have surpassed the Rs100 crore mark.

His wife Twinkle Khanna was excited to host Smith. "Guess who came over for dinner last night? Now I have to stop saying that I have no Willpower:) #freshprinceofbelair," Khanna posted on Twitter on Monday with a photograph featuring her all smiles with Smith.

Smith, who started out as a rapper in the late 1980s, got his break as an actor in the TV serial The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, in which he played a fictionalized version of himself. The serial ran on the NBC network in the United States from 1990 through 1996.

While social media was abuzz with Smith's party-hopping in India, the star has not shared anything on social media about his trip to the country. Other Hindi film stars like Varun Dhawan, Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Rohit Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shraddha Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha were part of the bash.

Fernandez took to Twitter to give a dekko at what happened at the party with an image in which she is seen posing with Smith, Dhawan and Bhatt. The caption read: "OMG #freshprinceofbelair".

As far as Smith's visit is concerned, there is no information yet about why he is in India. But this is not the first time he is in the country. He helped launch Sony's Pix channel in India back in 2008, and The Pursuit Of Happyness (2006) star also became a part of the reality show Indian Idol for an episode of a past season.
