Australian actor Chris Hemsworth is game for working in the Hindi film industry if he is offered a "great script".

Asked if he would be open to work in a Hindi film, Hemsworth told the IANS news agency at a recent round table conference: "Sure. I'd go where the fun is and then scripts are... if there was a great script, I would be up for anything."

Hemsworth was present with actor Mark Ruffalo and director Taika Waititi for the Sydney premiere of his upcoming film Thor: Ragnarok, the third instalment in the Thor franchise.

Another new factor in the film is that Hemsworth, who is popular for sporting long hair in the film for his iconic character Thor, will be seen in a short hairdo. He will be also be seen fighting a war without his weapon, the hammer, Mjolnir.

"Cutting the hair, losing the hammer to changing the costumes and then having someone like Taika, who sort of brought such a unique vision and tone to it and humour," Hemsworth said.

Adding a dash of humour to the film was a "big thing". "The big thing to it was to have more humour and having fun and wacky quality to it," he said.

This will be the first time that the characters Thor and The Hulk will be seen together outside of a Marvel Studios' Avengers franchise.

Talking about working with Ruffalo in the film, Hemsworth said: "It happened and it was great because... he is just so much fun and specially improvizing with him, he has put child-like innocence and uncertainty in the character that didn't exist before and which I feel is very refreshing to have, which makes him more accessible."

Thor: Ragnarok, which is to be released in India on Friday, is the 17th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, all of which culminates in Avengers: Infinity War.
