Brad Pitt is in Mumbai for the promotion of his upcoming film War Machine, and while he is in the city, he is going to meet The King of Romance Shah Rukh Khan in a closed door event later in the day. The two are expected to discuss their love for cinema and their passion for acting in this meeting. Pitt is reportedly staying at the Trident Hotel in South Mumbai, and is expected to make a quick appearance at the special screening of War Machine at PVR Highstreet Phoenix. Now what better way to discuss film promotions than talk to the most successful actor and filmmaker in India, isn’t it?
The 53-year-old actor is busy promoting his Netflix film, War Machine, across the world. Just a few days back, the Mr. & Mrs. Smith actor was in Tokyo, Japan, to promote War Machine.
War Machine is the big budget satirical comedy starring Brad Pitt as General McMahon whose cocky reputation lands him in trouble. Produced by his company Plan B, which has earlier produced films such as Oscar-winners 12 Years A Slave and Moonlight, it is based on the bestselling non-fiction book The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan. It was written by late journalist Michael Hastings who followed former US commanding general Stanley McChrystal around Afghanistan in 2010 for an article.
This will be Brad Pitt’s second visit to India. The last time he came here, he was accompanied by former wife Angelina Jolie and their brood. Jolie was shooting A Mighty heart in India and the entire family had come along. Jolie and Pitt announced their divorce earlier this year.
