Tom Cruise arrives in India to promote Ghost Protocol

On Friday evening, Anil Kapoor flew into Delhi to be ready to receive Tom Cruise early Saturday morning. From there they flew out to

Agra to the Taj Mahal.

Confirming this, Anil Kapoor was also getting set to co-host a party for Tom Cruise in Mumbai on Saturday night.

The Big Bash for Tom Cruise co-hosted by Viacom 18 and Anil Kapoor on Saturday night would be an exclusive 150-guest affair at the Taj Rooftop, Colaba.

So exclusive that a lot of Bollywood’s A-listers would not be seen at the bash. Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan would be giving the

bash a miss. They are apparently out of town and have expressed their inability to attend.

The only Khan superstar at the bash would be Aamir.

Says a source close to the bash, “We had originally planned to invite 200 guests. That’s now been narrowed down to 150. Tom is a really cool guy. When Anil

asked him whom he’d like to meet from Bollywood and from other walks of life he said, no one and everyone. Tom says he is on a mission to promote Mission

Impossible: Ghost Protocol. So for him, the fan interaction is the most important part of his itinerary. The only desire he expressed for his India visit

was to visit the Taj Mahal.”

The guest list for the Tom Cruise bash includes Mukesh and Neeta Ambani, the Godrejs, Birlas, the Bachchans (minus Aishwarya), Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and

Karan Johar.

Says the source, “Tom touched down at Delhi on Saturday morning and left for Agra from the airport. He arrives in Mumbai on Saturday evening where he will be

received by Anil Kapoor who is expected to whisk Tom home for a brief visit to see Anil’s home and meet his family – again Tom’s wish. Then Tom checks into

his hotel, prepares for the party which is expected to last for no more than two hours. He says he wants to be fresh for the fan interaction on
