Mumbai: Hollywood star Elijah Wood, best known as Frodo Baggins of "The Lord of the Rings", is in India for his music tour. And on his very first day here, he enjoyed an auto-rickshaw ride, which he compared to a “Disney roller-coaster”.

The international star, who landed here on Wednesday night, is on his debut India visit, and will be on a three-city India tour with Zach Cowie, with whom he makes the Wooden Wisdom DJ duo.
An auto-rickshaw ride, which he took on Thursday, was not the only thing the actor penned on his to-do list. Wood also wants to relish the flavours of authentic Bengali cuisine.
A source in the know of Wood's plans told IANS: "He loved the auto-rickshaw ride and said that 'it is like a Disney roller-coaster ride' for him. He will be having authentic Bengali lunch, following which he will rest for a while and address a press conference".
Wood also has plans to soak in the nightlife of Mumbai by performing on Thursday at the Trilogy Nightclub here, where he will be mixing some Bollywood numbers to his set.
If time permits, he's also keen to explore the city.
“He is happy to be visiting Mumbai during peak of monsoon when the weather is fine and is glad that he is getting a glimpse of the city with no rain. He plans to roam in and around Bandra if he has some spare time in his hand,” the source said.
Hosted by Indian actor Ali Fazal, Wooden Wisdom will be visiting Delhi and Hyderabad as well. Wood reportedly also wants to visit Agra to see the iconic Taj Mahal.
