{nl}It is an infectious thing, that Tom Cruise smile.{nl}There they are, those bright white teeth grinning perfectly out to me as I shake his hand.{nl}”Really? Has there been controversy?” Cruise deadpans when I ask him about it, before turning to Singer and asking: “Did you read anything about that?”{nl}Singer shakes his head and says: “I don’t read.” {nl}The film is helped along of course by a truckload of British talent in the supporting cast. {nl}There is Kenneth Brannagh, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Terrence Stamp and even Eddie Izzard.{nl}Yes, they all play Germans who speak with British accents. But the prospect of them all speaking in comedy German voices would have been a whole lot worse.{nl}”Look at the cast we have, you know we’re fortunate enough to have your countrymen,” Cruise says. {nl}”Any time we can get those Brits in a film, we’re like come on, because they’re so talented.”{nl}So does Cruise care about those critics who say he has a lot to prove, especially after his last political thriller Lions For Lambs failed to ignite the box office, even though he gave a pretty decent turn as a charismatic senator?{nl}”You know I’m just making movies. Through the career, it has been 25 years now and even after Days Of Thunder, Far And Away – they were like, this is a comeback,” he replies.{nl}”I’m making movies and I feel lucky to be able to do it, and I’m going to do this for the rest of my life, so it’s fine.”

Hollywood filmmaker Bryan Singer, who is currently on a promotional tour across Asia and Europe with superstar Tom Cruise for his Nazi thriller “Valkyrie”, has revealed that the actor is keen on visiting India to promote the film. {nl}”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 told IANS over phone from Seoul, South Korea. {nl}”I’d also like the Indian audience to know that ‘Valkyrie’ is a true and extraordinary story. It’s an edge-of-the-seat assassination thriller and is the story of a neglected event in time,” added the director who is also contemplating visiting Japan and China as a part of the promotional tour.
