THE Big B has a new fan and a competitor of sorts. Hollywood actor, WILL SMITH, made his debut in the city asking people to call him "Big W" for now. Why? "Because when I saw `Sarkar', I loved it. Then I met Amitabh Bachchan. I did not realise that he is such a big man, The Big B, so I want to be addressed similarly."
Smith who was visiting with his entourage of 13 wife and kid included made sure he got acquainted with everything Indian from chicken tikka masala to the Taj. "I just have to taste the authentic one," said Smith of his favourite food. He professed his fascination for Indian films, and said he wanted to "hug" everyone specially "Aishwarya Rai. She is perfect. I am willing to do any film with her," quipped Smith. "In fact she need not do anything at all. She only has to stand there, she is so perfect." And even as he displayed familiar antics of jumping over the sofas and pulling funny faces, the "fresh prince of Bel Air" insists that he is basically a "struggling actor".
