Australian actor Hugh Jackman is India bound for a film and media conference where he will be sharing the stage with Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan.
The ‘X Men’ franchise star will reportedly fly to Mumbai on Thursday night and will be the star attraction on the closing day of the conference on Friday.
At the conference, Hugh Jackman and Shahrukh will talk about cinema and the fast bridging gap between the two biggest film producing industries in the world, Bollywood and Hollywood.
Karan Johar will preside over the conference. In fact, none other than Aishwarya Rai will introduce Jackman on the stage.
Jackman’s India visit has been planned and successfully executed by Fox Star India. We hear Karan Johar also played an important role in making Jackman come to India.
For the uninitiated, Jackman is best known for his roles in the films of ‘X Men’ series, ‘Wolverine’ being the latest. He is also a singer and a dancer and has done a good number of stage musicals. You might also remember him as the entertaining host of the Oscar awards night in 2009 when Slumdog Millionaire won multiple awards.
