Will Smith Seen for the First Time in India since Oscars Slap
Will Smith was spotted in Mumbai, India, in his first public appearance since slapping comedian Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars.
The actor arrived at a private airport and is allegedly in the country to meet with the spiritual leader, Sadhguru.
He was met with loud cheers, fans shouting his name and paparazzi snapping him up.
Although he seems to be in good spirits, this is a very tense phase for the Oscar winner.
There are reports that Smith wants to meet with the yogi to discuss his anger and temperament. He hopes to control his actions before they control him.
This comes off the back of one of the most viral moments of 2022 and Oscars history.
Chris Rock joked about Will’s wife, Jada’s, alopecia – a type of hair loss that can affect your scalp or entire body. Will was seemingly laughing it off.
But he suddenly approached the stage and slapped Chris, stunning the audience. Smith followed it up by shouting: “keep my wife’s name out of your f*****g mouth”.
Having laid low since the incident, Smith is in India on a search for self-discovery and healing.
