Tom Cruise’s Bollywood Dreams

Tom Cruise wants to be in a Bollywood film. (Yes, that sentence is as ridiculous to write as it is to read.) While attending a red-carpet screening of ‘Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol,’ in India, Cruise expressed his admiration for the popular Hindi film genre. “I love watching Hindi movies. There are many Hindi movies that come out every year but I do watch a few of them. [If offered a Bollywood film] I would never say no. I would love to do it,” said Cruise.

Later in the evening, the actor was treated to a dance performance by Bollywood choreographer Shiamak Davar’s troupe. Although Cruise may have been playing up his Hindi movie dreams just for the night, he is set to star as Stacee Jaxx, the lead singer of an ’80s rock band, in 2012’s ‘Rock of Ages.’ Perhaps the singing-dancing Tom is here to stay?

‘Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol’ opens in North America on December 21.
