Anil Kapoor To Play An Indian Playboy In Mission: Impossible 4
Anil Kapoor admits that when he was working for ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ he never imagined that it is going to give a U-turn to his life and career. The growing popularity of the actor in the west proves from the fact that after signing TV series ‘24’ he is set to star in Hollywood’s most popular franchise Mission: Impossible with none other than Tom Cruise.
In the fourth offering from the franchise, Anil Kapoor will be seen playing the role of an Indian playboy with international connections named Brij Nath. The character is said to be inspired by the Playboy magazine owner, Hugh Hefner.
In addition to it, Mr. Kapoor who is set to start filming for his portions in the action flick in Dubai from next month will have few of the steamy scenes with Paula Patton.
Meanwhile, the actor admits that his casting agents are happy with his international progress.
"MI4 should keep me in the rolling as far as future Hollywood breaks go. All I can say is I'm going to go out there and have a good time," he was quoted as saying.
He further continued, "When I did Slumdog Millionaire I didn't imagine that it was opening doors to me for further opportunities in the West. 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."
