Italian actor Monica Bellucci, who is all set to play the Bond girl in Spectre, is impressed with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan whom she met in Morocco. When asked whether she would like to work in Bollywood, the 51-year-old star said, “Ah, Bollywood, I can’t say anything. I can’t sing. I can’t dance. But, I met Shah Rukh Khan once in Morocco and he is a really kind hearted man. I am glad that I met him and I have an immense respect for him.”

There’s something different happening out there,” she said at the world premiere of the movie in London recently.
