Tom Cruises Around T'town
Anil Kapoor chaperoned the Hollywood A-lister as he mingled with B'wood stars
It was Anil Kapoor's big day. Bollywood's only true blue export to Hollywood had a great time playing guide and escort to Tom Cruise who was in the country on a promotional tour for his next blockbuster 'Mission Impossible 4-Ghost Protocol'. The whirlwind visit saw the Hollywood superstar pose prettily at the Taj Mahal, meet with ordinary star-struck fans at the red carpet event and charm the ladies at a special bash organised for him at a Mumbai hotel.
But the first stop was Delhi. Tom visited the tourist town of Agra, five hours from the capital, sending crowds into a frenzy. Anil, who plays an important character in 'MI-4', was there to welcome him and the two made for great photo-ops in the backdrop of the Taj. The next destination was Mumbai where once again, the Slumdog Millionaire star stuck close to Tom, at the red carpet screening and the after party. The Top Gun actor also met the big guns of Bollywood including Aamir Khan, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Arjun Rampal, Ashutosh Gowarikar, Yash Chopra and others at the bash. As for the ladies, Sonam and Rhea Kapoor made the most of daddy Anil's special connection with Tom and spent the entire evening chatting with him.
Indeed, as far as the Hollywood-Bollywood collaboration goes, this was one successful 'mission'. We wonder if Anil said his trademark jhakaas after the party.
