Though a fan of Hollywood’s desi counterpart, Alyson Hannigan of How I Met Your Mother fame says Hindi movies are not her cup of tea

With many B-Town stars including Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan Khan making their presence felt in the international arena, there has been a renewed interest in Bollywood and its talents. Alyson Hannigan aka Lily of the popular sitcom, How I Met Your Mother, says she has been fascinated by the Hindi film industry, courtesy her husband Alexis Denisof.

"My husband is a huge fan of Bollywood films. It is because of him that I have seen a few movies. I love the outfits they sport in the films - they are so colourful, vibrant and the detailed work on it looks exquisite and mesmerising," she gushes.

Ask her if she would ever consider being part of a Bollywood project and the actor quips that she won't be able to ace the song-and-dance routine. "I don't think I am talented or graceful enough to star in a Bollywood film. I have no clue how the actors do it; they make it seem so artful. I don't think I can ever do that. Had it been something clumsy, I could ace that," she laughs.

Hannigan, whose How I Met Your Mother is all set to air on Star World India from December 26, adds that she wishes to explore India soon. "India is on my bucket list. My husband loves listening to Bollywood music, so we would love to explore the country of its origin."
