Mumbai (AFP) - Brad Pitt told Shah Rukh Khan that he doesn't have the moves to star in Bollywood films as he promoted his new movie War Machine in Mumbai on Wednesday (May 24).

"I wouldn't make it Bollywood because I can't dance or sing," said the American actor during an event with Indian actor Khan in front of journalists in India's financial capital.

Khan responded by telling Pitt he could easily learn. "We can make anyone dance. I just spread my arms and do nothing, that's a step," joked the actor known as King Khan.

Pitt, who recently split up with Angelina Jolie, arrived in India from Japan early on Wednesday for the latest stop on a promotional tour for the Netflix movie War Machine.

The war satire, in which he plays a hubristic United States general, will be released on the streaming site on Friday.

Pitt, 53, was due to attend a screening of the film, directed by David Michod, in Mumbai later on Wednesday.

It was the star's second high-profile visit to India after he accompanied Jolie here during her filming of A Mighty Heart in 2006.

Earlier this month he opened up on his divorce from Jolie, admitting that heavy drinking had contributed to the breakdown of his marriage.

He told GQ Magazine that he is now teetotal and in therapy. Jolie, 41, filed for divorce in September, citing irreconcilable differences.
