Former wrestler and actor Dwayne Johnson is currently one of the highest-paid actors across the globe and he has been giving his fans back to back amazing and exciting movies. The actor who looks forward to his debut in the DCEU with the anti-hero character, Black Adam, is also gearing up for the release of his next, Red Notice, with Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds. In a recent promotional interview about the movie, he talked about his opinion about India and Bollywood.

The 49-year-old will soon be seen sharing screen space with Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds in the upcoming Netflix thriller movie, Red Notice, which is also co-produced by Dwayne. Talking about the action thriller, Dwayne said that he loved the originality of the story and there’s a surprise that caught his attention. “My criteria for selecting films these days is asking two questions – am I going to love making the movie and are the people going to love the movie? Red Notice checked those boxes,” he added.

When asked if he would like to work in a Bollywood movie, he said, “I would love that. I’ve always said that. I would love to figure out whatever the pathway is. I’ve felt there should be some more connective tissue between Hollywood and Bollywood. Especially when so many of our releases are not just theatrical, but they are on streaming platforms as well, where there’s so much more opportunity. There has to be a way to converge.”

The actor also revealed that he also wants to visit the country after getting recommendations from professional wrestlers, The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin. “There were a couple of tours in which we were planning to go to India during my professional wrestling days, but it fell through for whatever reason. I was looking forward to that because my friends – The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin would come back from India and say you must go there because we had the greatest time and the crowd was crazy,” he said.
