As is the case for many Australians, actor Chris Hemsworth has fallen in love with Bali. He has visited the island many times, which is why he is familiar with some Indonesian words and phrases.

When meeting fans in Bali on Monday evening, the actor greeted his fans in Indonesian.

“Very well, thank you. Bagus sekali [very good],” he said when the host of the event asked him how he was doing.

Hemsworth continued to practice his language skills with the host and audience, inspiring loud applause and admiring screams from the crowd.

Among the new Indonesian words the host taught him was mantul, a portmanteau of mantap betul (awesome).
