Mumbai, Jan 21: Hollywood star Tom Cruise has expressed his desire to visit India, a country that rouses his curiosity like no other.
The handsome star is promoting his latest film ‘Valkyrie’ in Asia and attended the premiere of the film in Seoul. Now, he is looking forward to promote the film in India, but if the visit doesn’t materialize Cruise may come calling early next year.
"It has been a dream of mine to come to India. Hopefully, next year I would come depending on the filming. But I always talk about India to friends who have been there and I also have friends that are from India so I cannot wait to go there," Cruise is quoted by a news agency.
In fact, Bryan Singer, the director of ‘Valkyrie’, has confirmed to another news agency that Cruise is looking forward to promote the movie in India.
"Tom wants to go to India for the promotion. His daughter (Isabella, 16, adopted) has told him a lot about the country and he is eager to go there. India is also an emerging and growing market in terms of business for us," Singer is quoted by IANS.
Based on the life of German hero colonel Claus con Stauffenberg, ‘Valkyrie’ has come under strong bashing from critics. But Cruise seems happy with the response from fans and friends.
"It has been really nice because the outpouring I've got from various friends has been that they were very engaged by the film and found it to be very suspenseful," Cruise told a news channel.
