Actor Will Smith says India so rich with stories he felt at home during visit

NEW DELHI (AP) - Hollywood actor Will Smith says India is so rich with stories that he felt at home during his visit to the South Asian country.

Smith, a best-actor Oscar nominee for 2001's Ali, last week launched Sony Entertainment's English-language movie channel, Pix, and was a guest on Indian Idol, the country's version of American Idol.

"The walls and streets here are alive with history. And I am a storyteller ... and story lover," he told The Times of India newspaper in an interview that appeared in Monday's editions.

"India is so rich with stories that I feel at home," he said. It was the 37-year-old actor's first trip to India.

Smith also attended a party at the home of a top Indian film actor, Shah Rukh Khan, where the two discussed the Indian cinema and the star system.

Smith said he'd like to explore a possible collaboration between Hollywood and Bollywood, as India's film industry is known.
