Anil Kapoor took tips from Tom Cruise for '24'

Mumbai, Oct 21 : Actor Anil Kapoor, who underwent rigorous physical training for his debut production


"To be honest with you, yes, (I took tips from Tom Cruise). When he came here (to India) I spent quite some time with him. Since then definitely we are in touch. For physical training, I have learnt a lot from him," Anil told reporters here at the launch of the game on "24".

"I was speaking to him when he was training for "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and then I came to know how he had trained for that film. So I took a lot of tips from him. If you see the way Tom Cruise runs, I too had a lot of running shots in '24'," he added.

Cruise and Anil shared the screen together in 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol". Since then the two developed a friendly bond. Later, Anil also threw a party when Cruise visited India in 2011 for the promotion of his film (MI-4).

Talking about the special tip he got from Cruise, Anil said: "He (Cruise) told me, 'if you want to do the running shots very well, you need to train your legs."

"He has a special treadmill for that. In the same way, the running shots of mine that you (reporters) see in the show, I have trained my legs for that," added the 53-year-old.

Directed by Abhinay Deo, "24" airs on Colors channel. In the show, Anil plays the lead role of Jai Singh Rathod, the chief of an anti-terrorist unit.
