From expressing his love for Indian cuisine to beatboxing and showing his moves, Will Smith managed to enthrall Indian fans at the premiere of his upcoming film Bright. 

The Hollywood superstar was in Mumbai to promote his film, which will be releasing exclusively on Netflix this Friday. 

He made a public appearance and greeted his fans at High Street Phoenix, Lower Parel, prior to the screening of the film which also had Bollywood stars in attendance.

The Oscar-nominated actor arrived in India with his Bright co-stars Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace and director David Ayer.

Smith showed off his dancing skills when hosts Rannvijay Singha and Bani Judge requested the team to shake a leg for the Indian fans, who waited for over four hours at the venue for the actor to come up on the stage.

Taking it a step ahead, Smith started beatboxing as Edgerton, Rapace and Ayer tried to copy Rannvijay, and eventually joined in.

Bright is a fantasy tale which narrates how humans exist with fairies, orcs and elves. Smith also talked about the film, which puts spotlight on racism and class divide while telling the story of two police officers.
