Hugh Jackman shakes a leg in Mumbai, takes a dig at SRK, Johar

"The Indian cinema is growing every year. I am looking forward to work in Bollywood films. I am meeting directors. I hope Karan Johar is listening," Jackman said.

"I am a huge fan of Shahrukh Khan and I loved his film 'My Name is Khan'. I want to do a sequel to this film and that will be called 'My Name is Jackman and I am not a terrorist'", the actor said.

The Australian actor further said, "Indian cinema is huge and is popular in Australia. People over there know about Bollywood. They are inspired by Bollywood films."

About the city, Jackman said, "It's just been 24 hours since I arrived here in Mumbai but I feel I am here for a week. It is the most amazing city and country. I and my wife always wanted to come here to Mumbai...People are incredible, the place is amazing, the history....the spirituality and everything...I just love it."

The discussion had been a part of FICCI-FRAMES conference on media.
Bollywood heartthrob Aishwarya Rai presented a memento to the Australian actor and producer. "I feel Aishwarya is the most beautiful woman and a great actress. But even my wife is the most beautiful woman," Jackman quipped.

The actor shook a leg with Shahrukh to the beats of famous Hindi song 'Dhak Dhak Karne Laga'.

Jackman, known for his role as 'Wolverine' in the popular 'X Men' series, arrived in Mumbai with wife Deborra-Lee Furness yesterday.
