India: Will Smith Seen In Public At Private Airport In Mumbai, First Since the Oscar Slap Controversy

  • In the photos and video, Will Smith can be seen alighting from a car and heading for the terminal as he interacts with a man who is likely his host in the city.

Hollywood star Will Smith, who recently landed himself in hot water after slapping Chris Rock at the Academy Awards ceremony, was spotted at Mumbai’s Kalina airport.

In the photos, Smith can be seen alighting from a car and heading for the terminal as he interacts with a man who is likely his host in the city. The reason for Smith’s visit is not yet known, but judging by the accompanying monk, it may have something to do with the spiritual leader and Isha Foundation’s Sadhguru. Smith counts himself as one of Sadhguru’s followers. Also Read |Will Smith gets 10-year Oscars ban over Chris Rock slap

Last month, Smith shocked the Oscars’ in-person audience and those watching the event live around the world when he slapped presenter comedian and presenter Chris Rock onstage.will smith india, will smith Will Smith won an Oscar last month.

The reason for Smith’s assault was a joke Rock had cracked moments before about the former’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith. In the joke, Rock said while referring to Jada, “G.I. Jane 2. Can’t wait to see it.”

1997’s G.I. Jane, a war drama, had Demi Moore playing the role of the (fictional) first female Navy Seal who shaved her head. The joke was ridiculing fun of Jada’s lack of hair due to a condition called alopecia.

Minutes after the slap, Smith was awarded an Oscar in the Best Actor category for his performance in King Richard. He apologised for his behaviour in his speech and later through a social media statement. As a consequence for his actions, the Academy banned him from Oscars and other Academy events for 10 years.
