Is Ashton Kutcher courting controversy with Indians again?

Two years after drawing fire for impersonating a Bollywood producer in a Popchips ad, the Two and a Half Men star donned Indian garb to perform a Bollywood-style dance number at the Italian wedding of Google senior vp and chief business officer Nikesh Arora and entrepreneur Ayesha Thapar.

After the performance, Kutcher grabbed the microphone and made a joke in an Indian accent: "I tried to make it rain. Nothing happened!" (Watch part of the dance below; TMZ also posted additional footage with the quote.)

According to reports, Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Kutcher's pregnant fiancee, Mila Kunis, were also in attendance at the nuptials.

Kutcher previously drew controversy in May 2012, when he painted his face brown and donned an Indian accent to play a Bollywood producer looking for love in a Popchips commercial. The ad was deemed racist by critics, and Popchips pulled it from its Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Popchips CEO Keith Belling apologized on the company's blog, writing: "I take full responsibility and apologize to anyone we offended."
