The Fight Club star admits he takes an interest in the Indian entertainment industry and would be open to signing on for a Bollywood project.

He tells Indian news agency IANS, "Indian cinema seems to be growing very well at its own pace. I would love to work in a Bollywood film as there is so much drama and colour in the films there. The filmmaking, I hear, has evolved a lot in India, and of late we have witnessed some good films making a presence at the Oscars and the world stage. That tells you a lot about the quality of the actors and the films."

Pitt also regrets missing out on the chance to work with Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan after she turned down a role in his 2007 epic Troy.

He adds, "Given a chance, I would like to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, because she's a versatile actor. She is one of the most popular actresses of Bollywood, who has achieved huge acclaim in the west for her style, beauty and acting skills. I think we missed an opportunity to be cast together for Troy."
