Mike Tyson Wants to Do Bollywood Movies

Here’s one that left me scratching my head — as the Associated Press reports, Mike Tyson wants to star 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. . . . 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. . . .

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. . . . 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.

Hey, if Mike can find a little piece of happiness and enjoyment in his life through acting in Bollywood movies, I’m all for it. If Bollywood can do that for someone as troubled as Mike Tyson, imagine what it can do for the average person . . .
