That is what Vidya Balan wished for when she was presented the best actress trophy at FICCI FRAMES 2011 Business Excellence Awards by Hollywood star and 'the sexiest man on the Earth' Hugh Jackman.

Her idea about the unique international casting for ISHQIYA 2 found instant approval from Jackman and Shahrukh Khan who were all ready to sign up for the project there and then in the presence of industry stalwarts like Yash Chopra, Ramesh Sippy, and 'the most beautiful woman on the Earth' Aishwarya Rai Bachhan. However, there was a hitch. Jackman had to prove his 'Bollywood quotient' before landing up the role and was called upon by the hostess of the show Minnie Mathur to demonstrate his booty shaking skills by dancing to a Bollywood tune along with SRK. And thus happened a hilarious 'sangam' of Bollywood and Hollywood, which looked more like a 'sandwich' with Vidya Balan acting as a thick slice of juicy cheese of 'Silk Smita variety' between the two dancing stars - the 'Wolverine' and 'Whose Name is Khan' who performed an impromptu jig with her in the middle. Hugh Jackman, SRK, and Aishwarya Rai were also honoured on the occasion and were presented awards.
