Ash was first choice for Hancock.
Indian actress Aishwarya Rai was Will Smith's first choice for Hancock over Oscar winning Charlize Theron but the actress declined.
Smith, who by his own admission is a great fan of Aishwarya, is not disappointed and believes that they will share good on screen chemistry.
"I would love to work with Aishwarya. She is gorgeous. I had even offered her roles with me. In fact for 'Hancock' also she was my first preference over Charlize," he told PTI in an e-mail interview.
The actor is still hopeful that would work together in future.
"I received denials all the times, may be she had some justified problems. But of course, I will do anything to work with Aishwarya," says a hopeful Smith.
The Independence Day actor, whose latest superhero flick Hancock is all set to release in India on July 11 is also a huge fan of Indian films industry and is currently exploring possibilities of working in an Indian film.
"I would love to work in an Indian film. I have seen a couple of Bollywood movies which had impressed me a lot. I also had a word with Karan Johar. Let's see what's there in store," says the actor.
"I love Indian cinema and its actors. Their energy level is just incompatible. The songs and dances in Bollywood movies are just amazing," he added.
