MVC ActionResult trigger Async Task before return View()

I'm trying to achieve something like this:

public ActionResult PostData()
    // 1. Need to trigger an async operation for some long processes
    // Trying to trigger SideProcess() async controller

    // Return to view to allow user do other stuff without waiting for above process to complete
    return View("Listing", "Users");

public async Task<ActionResult> SideProcess()

Can I use async task method like above? Because I definitely have to call PostData() first on a button click. Otherwise most likely I have to use a different method.
