Bollywood leading lady Aishwarya Rai is eager to work with U.S. actor Will Smith, but is in no rush to sign on to other Hollywood projects, a news agency reported.

Rai has some big roles in upcoming Bollywood releases, including the much anticipated "Dhoom 2," and she's been linked to several Hollywood projects such as "Chaos," in which she would star alongside Meryl Streep.

But in an interview with the Press Trust of India, Rai declined to discuss any Hollywood plans, apart from a possible film with Will Smith for which she has already seen the script.

"There are quite a few scripts from abroad, but I hope to be able to work with Will Smith. The script was great and it will be fun to work with him," the agency quoted Rai as saying on Monday.

As for other Hollywood projects, it quoted her as saying, "I really want time to decide. I don't know what will come my way. I will go through the scripts, I will look at the dates and only then will sign newer movies."

Rai, a former Miss World, has acted in more than 30 movies and is considered among India's top actresses.
