Tom Cruise denies paying fans to greet him at Mumbai airport
London: Tom Cruise’s representatives have denied suggestions that a hoard of fans who welcome him at the Mumbai airport last week were in fact paid to turn up.
An Indian website had claimed that the crowd of 200 people were paid 150 rupees and were also given free lunch to greet the Hollywood star.
However, Paramount Pictures, who are behind Cruise’s latest ‘Mission Impossible’ film have released a statement saying that the idea the crowd were paid is “absurd.”
“The only people we paid were the performers who danced outside the venue,” the Daily Mail quoted a spokesperson as saying.
“The idea that the fans were paid to cheer is completely ludicrous and false,” the spokesperson added.
