Bill Clinton has announced that he is a fan of Bollywood.

The former US President was speaking at a gala dinner for the Clinton Foundation in central London.

"I asked him if he had seen many Indian films and he said that he'd seen several and loved Bollywood productions," revealed British Asian entrepreneur Kaser Mehmood.

"It just came up in conversation," said Mehmood. "The ex-president himself was very friendly and easy to talk to and we were chatting for some time about all the good work that the foundation is doing."

Mehmood, who recently relocated to Qatar, suggested that the region was a growth area for the Hindi film industry.

"I feel that Qatar is the next big contender in the entertainment field and so I'm looking to this region to be the next big heavyweights to embrace Bollywood," he added.

Clinton is reported to have provided security for Salman Khan earlier this year, when fans of the Bollywood actor gathered at the same hotel in which the politician and actor were both staying.
