Foremost, he revealed why his 7-year-old daughter was named India. He said the name originally came from his wife, Elsa Pataky, who spent a lot of time in India. Hemsworth, who is now 35, first met older Spanish actress Pataky in 2010; the pair tied the knot just three months after going public as a couple that December.

Apart from their daughter, the couple has twin sons, Sasha, and Tristan Hemsworth.

Talking about Dhaka, Hemsworth also took us through the filming process in the country. Not only did he shoot along with famous Bollywood names such as Randeep Hooda and Manoj Bajpayee for the movie.

Moreover, he also wore a traditional desi Kurta Pajama to celebrate the festival of lights - Diwali. His visit to India had thousands of fans gathering at the sets and cheering the God of Thunder on.

Hemsworth said after the director called "cut", the fans would always do standing ovations, making him feel like a "rock star in a stadium." He admits the number of people gathered at the scene was "intimidating", but it was also "exciting" at the same time.

Additionally, Thor also noted the positivity of the audience. Although the crew's presence would disrupt their lives, the Indian citizens would give Hemsworth unfaltering support. Furthermore, the star also revealed that he had plans to work on some Bollywood movies.

At the moment, Hemsworth is continuing the classic Men In Black franchise with the latest addition: Men in Black: International. The film will be released in India on June 14.
