New Delhi: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan's fan following is spread across the globe. He is probably one of the few actors in Bollywood who is a global figure. Though Shah Rukh hasn't acted in any Hollywood movie, he is a known name there.

And actor Wesley Snipes' statement just proves that.

Wesley Snipes is best known for his role as the Marvel Comics character Blade in the Blade film trilogy. He took a break from the glitzy world but this year he will be returning to TV with two shows and four films.

Snipes says he has been in awe of India since he was a student at New York State University where his teachers taught Bollywood dance steps. He hopes that he will soon pay a visit to India and he hopes to accomplish three wishes here.

The 53-year-old actor, who is a trained martial artist, wants to learn Kalaripayattu under a martial arts guru and study the Ayurvedic form of healing in Kerala, take a Bollywood dance class and act in an action-thriller with Shah Rukh Khan.

When asked why he chose Shah Rukh and not the other Khans, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, Snipes replied to a leading daily, "There's only one Khan, Shah Rukh Khan."

The duo were acquainted in 2008 when Shah Rukh hosted a party in a suite of a luxury hotel in Dubai. "We also met on Broadway and one day I will act and work with him," Wesley added.

Snipes was asked if he knew actress Priyanka Chopra who is starring in ABC's show ‘Quantico'. To this, he said "I've seen her on the hoardings and have watched the promo of the show. She's beautiful. One of the projects I am producing this year is an action flick with interesting content. I am looking for an actress to play the lead part, an Indian actress... So you never know!"

Well with this revelation by him, we wish his dream project with Shah Rukh Khan comes to reality soon as seeing both of them on screen would be quite interesting.
