A few questions later, Downey Jr showered more love on his Indian fans saying: "You guys are just amazing fans. I can't wait. I cannot believe I haven't been to India. I'm coming there so damn soon."

In a question relating to Downey Jr's character Tony Stark's character inviting Wong to his wedding, the actor was asked: "Do you think you will consider India as a wedding destination? If so where?"

To that, Downey Jr said: "Wow, right. I got to probably check it out first. I have got to come down there and do some scouting. You mean I should renew my vows to my Mrs or something like that."

He also spoke about what Indian engineers can do to apply for an internship at the fictional Stark Industries.

"Well, this was not a fan event... It was a recruiting event for Stark Industries. You guys will be receiving a high-security clearance positions," the actor quipped.

Among other things, he was asked about his favourite Iron Man suit and why.

He said: "The one you haven't seen yet. You know I love and I'm particular to Mark 1 and Mark 42."

Asked to share some fun stories from the "Avengers: Endgame" wrap-up party, the actor said: "Right, well I have no memory of it so must have been pretty good. I got to tell you honestly, we made both 'Infinity War' and 'Endgame', we basically shot them back-to-back and it was the most time that the most Avengers and Guardians and everyone was spending most time together.

"'Endgame' really represents the culmination of probably the time in our lives that we have been the closest."

Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Endgame" also stars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson.
