Anil Kapoor Bonds With Tom Cruise


Anil Kapoor has just returned from Prague where he spent a lot of time with Hollywood’s numero uno star Tom Cruise and the director of Mission Impossible 4, Brad Bird.

And even before he landed in Mumbai’s Mehboob Studio to finish work on his home-production No Problem, the grapevine said that Anil will play an Indian playboy with international connections in high places called Brij Nath in MI4. The character is expected to have shades of Hugh Hefner, the Playboy magazine owner.
In keeping with his screen character, it is hinted that the actor will have some steamy scenes in the film with Paula Patton. And, he is expected to start shooting for his portions of MI4 in Dubai next month.
Anil concedes that his Hollywood casting agents are happy with this break. “MI4 should keep me in the rolling as far as future Hollywood breaks go,” says the actor, who has become leaner in the last two weeks. “All I can say is I’m going to go out there and have a good time,” he smiles. After three decades of working really hard on his career, the actor says that he has mentally decided to just enjoy his screen time in Bollywood and abroad.
“When I did Slumdog Millionaire I didn’t imagine that it was opening doors to me for further opportunities in the West,” he says very modestly. “But now, 24 and MI4 seem to be just the tip of the iceberg. I’m happy to take each film as it comes. My agents are also happy with this break.”
Anil is flying to London tonight to shoot for Priyadarshan’s Tez. And he is also the negative character (which according to the grapevine is like Al Capone in The Untouchables) in Rajkumar Santoshi’s Power.
Next year may see him team up with Karan Johar and Vikram Aditya Motwane of Udaan fame in a film. And there is also talk of a reputed filmmaker bringing him and his star daughter Sonam together for the first time on screen. At 55, life has just begun for Anil. Says he, “Honestly, age is but a number. In my head, I’m still a newcomer, especially in the West.” The actor is also said to be in huge demand to make appearances at all the major Hollywood and British Awards functions that start from December right until March
