While several stars of Hindi cinema have turned westwards for new opportunities, it seems there are some on the other side of the spectrum waiting to join the Hindi film industry as well. Hollywood star Will Smith's son, Jaden, expressed a similar interest on his Twitter handle today. The star of films like The Karate Kid (2010) and After Earth (2013) wrote, "I Wanna Be In A Bollywood Movie."

Will Smith was recently in Mumbai to promote his Netflix film, Bright, and was received with a warm welcome. The actor already has a friendly relationship with stars lik Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan, and the feeling seems to have been passed down to his son. 

While it is not known if Jaden was serious or simply joking around, Twitter certainly found the young actor's intention amusing. Soon, the actor's Twitter feeds were flooded with amusing memes about his appearances in several iconic Hindi films. 

Jaden is a musician, actor, and a songwriter, who made his first appearance on screen alongside father, Will Smith, in the Oscar nominated The Pursuit Of Happyness (2006).
