Mumbai: Here’s some exciting news for die-hard Tom Cruise fans in India. The ‘Top Gun’ star is all set to visit India for the first time ever with wife Katie and daughter Suri.

Buzz has it that Tom will fly to India after wrapping up a promotional trip to South Korea, and will be taking a flight from Seoul to either Mumbai or Delhi on 3rd December and will fly out on the 5th December. Tom Cruise will be on a tight schedule and won’t be visiting the Taj Mahal, as the actor will focus on the promotional activities of ‘MI:4’.

Talking to a daily, Anil Kapoor, who is also a part of ‘MI:4’ will be playing host to the Hollywood heartthrob revealed, “This is not just a movie promo trip. I see it as a combination of movie promotions and the keeping of a gentleman`s word. This goes back to the Golden Globe awarded to ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ in January 2009, you’d remember Tom was the celebrity called to give away the award, and that was when I first spoke to him. We spoke about what a huge fan following he has in India, and I told him he must plan a trip. He’d promised me that he would try to work that out. Then, when I landed a guest appearance in ‘MI:4’ and met him next in LA, I reminded him of the India trip, and this time, he said he was going to have it in place shortly. I think he has built this into his global travels this time as a conscious effort along with the studio. After all, when has a star of his stature ever come here as part of a movie promo activity?”

Lovely, just can’t wait to see Tom Cruise in India!
