The multi-talented Hollywood actor, a dancer and singer par excellence, is so fond of Bollywood’s song-dance that he matched steps with Priyanka Chopra at IIFA 2014
John Travolta was seen grooving to Tune maari entry from Gunday without any prior preparation and wowed the audience at the 15th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Weekend.
The four-day extravaganza ended in Tampa Bay with the awards honouring the best work in Indian cinema on April 26. Actor-singer Priyanka Chopra started the award ceremony with her performance and Travolta added zing to the act by joining her on the stage.
After the performance, Piggy Chops praised Travolta’s impromptu act saying: “Nobody could have done that without any rehearsal.” At the gala, Travolta was honoured with the outstanding contribution to international cinema award. On receiving the honour, he said: “It’s a pleasure to be here … I am honoured and humbled. I want to thank the Indian community for the honour.”
It seems John was approached by filmmaker Shekhar Kapoor to be a part of his movie Paani. “Yes, I have been offered a film that I am considering doing. I believe it’s an honest Bollywood film and its called Paani. Shekhar Kapoor has asked me to be a part of it,” said Trovolta.
Shekhar Kapur has been planning to make Paani for a while now and Hrithik Roshan was earlier approached for this film.
