Mike Tyson wants to do Bollywood movies

MUMBAI, India - Mike Tyson wants to try something new — acting in Bollywood movies. Tyson said the energy on the sets of a music video he recently shot for a new comedy got him thinking about trying to do more Bollywood work, The Times of India reported Monday.

The former heavyweight boxing champion said in an interview that Firoz Nadiadwala, producer of "Fool n Final," had approached him with a script.
"Firoz has discussed a movie with me," the newspaper quoted Tyson as saying.
"We seriously intend to work toward it," he said, without disclosing any details.
Tyson, 40, danced to Bollywood music at a two-day shoot in Las Vegas last month for a music video to promote "Fool n Final," about a diamond heist.
"The atmosphere was very congenial, happy and energetic," the newspaper quoted Tyson as saying.
Tyson plays himself in the music video, set for release later this month.
He said Nadiadwala explained the concept of the music video to him earlier this year.
"I was, anyway, in that phase when I didn't mind trying out something different," he said. "The script seemed very interesting, with lots of excitement thrown in."
Tyson said there are similarities between acting and boxing.
"In both the fields, in order to survive and triumph, you need focus and to be highly disciplined and determined," he said.
A judge in Phoenix gave Tyson permission to travel to Las Vegas to shoot the music video. Tyson is facing charges of drug possession and driving under the influence of drugs for an arrest in Scottsdale last year.
Tyson had been expected to travel to India this summer to film the dance sequence, but the scene was shot in Las Vegas due to security reasons, director Ahmed Khan has said.
