It is not unknown that Will Smith is a huge Bollywood fan. In fact, on his Bucket List of things was to feature in a Bollywood song, which came true, thanks to Karan Johar and Ranveer Singh. The actor, who plays Genie in Guy Ritchie's Aladdin, wanted the director to add a bit of Bollywood flavour to the film. During the Prince Ali sequence in the film, Will Smith kept on requesting Ritchie to make it Bollywood.
It is reported that he spoke about this during a media interaction. He also shared this when he praised Badshah for his special Aladdin song. Well, we dont know Ritchie has heeded Smith's request for a Bollywood flavour in the film, but it would be great to see Genie do a mainstream Hindi movie masala spin in the Disney movie.
Aladdin which also stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine will release on May 24 in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu languages.
