    Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has been enjoying his time off from politics with a trip to India.

    But the actor-turned-politician has never been shy to steal a headline or two when possible. After being shunned away from the iconic Taj Mahal -- it was closed -- Schwarzenegger took a moment to talk about his return to movies.

    And it appears the action star has a thing for Bollywood numbers. He told local reporters that he would be interested in appearing in an Indian-made movie if the script was right.

    "Maybe if there is a good script and a good, interesting director, then -- I mean I worked already all over the world -- I would not mind working in India," he said. "What’s amazing about India is that they have an extraordinary movie industry. They do over 700 movies a year. I mean I don’t think there was ever a year when America did 700 movies. It is really amazing if you think about it."

    Bollywood has a track record of cheesy stunts and explosions but could the former governor pull off a Bollywood dance?
