Mumbai: The 49-year-old musician has, over the years, built a steady fan base that extends across the world, including India, where he recently performed at the Nh7 Weekender and he now plans to shoot his next music video here.

Expressing his affection for Indian films and songs, Wilson told PTI in an interview, "I have watched many Bollywood films but I cant name them. I love Bollywood dancing. In fact, we are thinking of making a video with some Bollywood touch for my next record. I’m thinking of doing it in India with Bollywood dancing.”

 

"There’s one song I have got, which is actually quite joyful and we tried running some Bollywood clips that we found on internet with that song and it worked well. So, we are looking forward to it. It would be an experimental thing for me to do and very surprising for the fans."

Wilson is keen to visit India once again as he wants to explore the country apart from his scheduled gigs.

"I’m really looking forward to visit India again in December. I would love one day just to come there and spend some time. And, I’m hoping to shoot this video for the next album there.”

 

"There’s so much joy about the way Indian people embrace life, music, culture and their tourists. It just puts a smile on your face and you don’t get that everywhere."

Wilson may have come to the country for the first time for an official concert but the singer was not surprised by his fan following in India.

"It was an extraordinary reaction, so much respect, love and passion for my music. We had a great time. I already had an idea about my fans in India because I have seen lots of traffic on my Facebook from Indian fans. So, I was kind of sure that it was going to be a passionate audience, who has a great knowledge about music."

 

Before coming to the Weekender, which was held in Shillong last month, Wilson had visited India back in 2009. He performed at a college festival that time.
