Noida: Jostled violently by crowds, she got hurt in the knees and one of toe nails was ripped off, but `Kites` star Barbara Mori isn`t willing to give up on Bollywood and now wants to do a film with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

"I would love to do more Bollywood films. I want to work with Shah Rukh Khan," Barbara told reporters Sunday when asked which actor was on her wishlist after romancing Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan in `Kites`.

Accompanied by Hrithik and producer-director Rakesh Roshan, the Mexican actress was at the Great India Place Mall for the post-release promotion of `Kites`.

There was plenty of hooting and whistling as soon as the cast of `Kites` arrived at the mall on the outskirts of the national capital. But this soon gave way to mayhem when fans went berserk trying to get a glimpse of their favourite stars.

"The crowd was unmanageable and everyone was pushing each other and Barbara was hurt. Her knee was scratched and one of her toe nails was ripped off," said one of the organisers at the event.

Hrithik was left fuming after the security was breached.

`Kites` grossed over Rs 21 crore on its opening day and has become the second highest opening-day grosser after `3 Idiots`. The film has also caught the fancy of the American media, making it perhaps the most reviewed Bollywood film on opening day.
