Best known by his ring name The Rock, wrestler-turned-Hollywood star Dwayne Douglas Johnson says he would love to act in a Bollywood movie. The 39-year-old, who has worked in films like The Scorpion King, The Game Plan and Race to Witch Mountain, says he enjoys watching the dancing and singing part in Hindi cinema.
The actor is busy promoting his upcoming digital 3D film Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, the sequel to 2008 hit Journey to the Center of the Earth. In an interview to PTI, Dwayne Johnson said, "I have watched a couple of Bollywood films. I totally love the dancing part...It's so much fun to watch and I am sure I will have a blast doing it too."
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is releasing in India tomorrow, a week prior to its US release. Johnson says he is lucky to have been able to shed his tough guy image in Hollywood. Johnson told PTI "It was hard to break ice because a wrestler is perceived differently by people. I am very grateful that some of the filmmakers saw potential in me and trusted me with films especially comedy. I am glad I didn't disappoint them."
Dwayne Johnson added, "This is a great and exciting time in my career, where I can have the opportunity to work in different genres, and also I recognize that there are not a lot of actors who have that opportunity and I'm grateful for it."
