Will Smith has been spotted for the first time since the infamous Slapgate scandal.
The attacked actor was pictured touching at a private airport in Mumbai, India on Saturday, where he was greeted by adoring fans.
Smith is reportedly in India to meet the spiritual leader Sadhguru, whom he and his family met in 2020 in Los Angeles.
The 53-year-old stopped to wave to fans and posed for photos and selfies while smiling while staff loaded his luggage off his vehicle.
It’s the first time Smith has been seen in public nearly a month after beating comedian Chris Rock to the Oscars after making a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair.
The Film Academy has since excluded Smith from the Oscars or any other academy event for 10 years.
“During our deployment, we did not adequately address the situation in space. We are sad about that,” the academy said.
“This was an opportunity for us to set an example for our guests, viewers and our Academy family around the world, and we fell short – unprepared for the unprecedented.”
Smith’s appearance in India comes when Rock’s mother, Rose Rock, sat down for an interview with the news station WIS-TV.
The author and motivational speaker said she saw the coverage from home and initially thought the incident was staged.
“You responded that your wife gave you the side glance and you went and made her day because she was overwhelmed with laughter when it happened,” Rose said.
“When he hit Chris, he hit us all. He really hit me, ”she said. “Because when you hurt my child, you hurt me.”
Rose went on to say that she is “really, really proud” of the way her son handled the situation and did not feel that Smith’s apology was genuine.
“I feel really bad that he never apologized,” Rose said. “His people wrote a piece and said, ‘I apologize to Chris Rock,’ but that kind of thing is personal. You reach out.”
