Tom Cruise, Paula Patton, and B-Town Heavy Anil Kapoor brought their ‘Mission:Impossible – Ghost Protocol‘ road show to Wadala, Mumbai, India, for a special IMAX screening. Greeted by a standing-room only crowd of dedicated fans chanting, “We want Tom Cruise! We want Tom Cruise!”, and accompanied by Bollywood’s biggest stars, The M:I-GP cast answered questions and posed for pictures.
Cruise said he’d always wanted to visit India and that his maiden voyage to the sub continent was a “dream come true.” As for his involvement with the four films in the series, that too exceeded his admittedly high expectations. A childhood favorite of his, the original series, in his estimation, had all the ingredients of a great film franchise, and Cruise used his considerable talent to help nurture the movie series into an unforgettable spectacle.
His comely co-star Paula Patton was equally emphatic about her physical turn as an IMF agent. An outgoing girl in her youth, she said her role as Jane Carter aligned with her strengths quite well. “I’m part girly-girly and part tomboy, so this was the perfect role for me.”
Viacom18 Motion Pictures was there to witness the event first hand! Check out these awesome images from their Facebook photo album of the event at Mumbai:
When not taking care of ‘Mission:Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ business, Tom, accompanied by Kapoor, took the opportunity to visit one of the world’s great treasures, the Taj Mahal, and to create one of his own: a roof-top party at the Taj Palace Hotel for a host of India’s biggest stars and politicians.
Directed by two-time Academy-Award winner Brad Bird, ‘Mission:Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Josh Holloway, Anil Kapoor, and Lea Seydoux .
Blamed for the terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, IMF operative Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is disavowed along with the rest of the agency when the president initiates “Ghost Protocol.” Left without any resources or backup, Ethan must find a way to clear his agency’s name and prevent another attack. To complicate matters further, Ethan is forced to embark on this mission with a team of fellow IMF fugitives whose personal motives he does not fully know.
