Of the slew of Hollywood stars that have flown in and out of India, Tom Cruise's visit has to be the most anticipated. After all it's not everyday you'd get to see the Top Gun star visit the Taj Mahal.
A lavish party has been planned to welcome the star, which will see Bollywood actors like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif shaking hands and perhaps even a leg at the post-dinner party.
Anil Kapoor and Tom Cruise
Sources confirm that Cruise will be landing in New Delhi today afternoon. He leaves for Agra with co-stars Paula Patton and Anil Kapoor, before taking his chartered flight to Mumbai.
The actor is expected to land in Mumbai, some time late evening and will stay at the Taj Mahal Hotel. Like most international celebrities, Cruise has asked for a personal kitchen, gym and a make-up room, apart from being uber-specific about his room temperature and the colours his special suite must incorporate.
Sunday will be spent meeting the press and speaking about his film, Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol.
However, we wonder with such a packed schedule if Cruise will manage time to visit Anil Kapoor's Juhu residence, but apparently the Kapoor household is taking no chances.
Wife Sunita and daughter Sonam have planned a quiet dinner with some of his favourite Indian dishes.
So if you've been a fan of the actor, here's your chance. With Cruise keen to meet his fans, we guess it won't be such an impossible mission after all.
