The largest Indian population outside of India is in South Africa. I flew in last night and we went to have dinner, and I walked into the restaurant and it smelled like home,”

“I was like, ‘I know this smell.’ I grew up with a lot of Indian culture around me. And I think it’s partly why I’ve always wanted to come to India. I’m fascinated by the culture. I’m fascinated by the people and fascinated by the country. There’s a beauty here that is just unique to India, you do not find this anywhere else,” she added.

“And because there’s such a big population of Indians out in South Africa, I got to watch more Bollywood movies than I did American movies. When I was around 10, we got this kind of a streamer on our television and the predominant movies that were on it were Bollywood movies. And every Sunday, they would put a new movie on and that was what we did. Every Sunday we sat and we watched a Bollywood movie,” Theron said, adding that the Indian films made her fall in “love with dancing”.

“Musicals were my favourite to watch,” she added.

Theron was in conversation with filmmaker Karan Johar, and the two discussed a range of subjects, including her journey to Hollywood from South Africa, equal pay, cancel culture and making a foray into film production.
