Hollywood actor John Travolta is likely to star in director Shekhar Kapur's highly anticipated film Paani.

"I have been offered a film that I am considering doing... I believe it is an honest Bollywood film and it is called Paani, by Shekhar Kapoor. He has asked me to be a part of it," Travolta said on the sidelines of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards here.

"I have known Shekhar for a while now. Even though the script does not have it (songs) Shekhar said he will put a song to make it truly Bollywood. I am open to working in Hindi films if I like the story and my part," he said.

Travolta has watched a number of Hindi films like 3 Idiots, Lagaan, Krissh and Ram Leela. He also said he loved actress Priyanka Chopra's debut music album Exotic.
