For all Tom Cruise and Mission Impossible series’ fans, there’s good news as the latest instalment from the franchise will have an Indian connection. In the latest development, Hollywood icon Tom Cruise along with his film’s team and crew will be landing in Kashmir, India for the climax of their film.
The franchise’s sixth film has a strong India connection as there’s news of mention of the Indian Army in the plot and shoot of Kashmir valley. Apparently, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise’s character in the film) will save the world by reaching Kashmir in India and by putting a stop to a sinister plot. See the trailer here.
Before you jump the gun, the final sequence of the film is not filmed in real-life Kashmir but a recreated version of the beautiful valley. Instead of shooting in India, the makers transformed a valley in New Zealand into a small village of Kashmir to shoot for the sequence.
The said plot starts with an epidemic breaking out in Kashmir as a result of an attack that affects several cities around the world. To save the world then, Ethan and his team cross borders and head to Kashmir to avert the danger. There is an adrenaline-charged helicopter chase sequence and crash in the snow-capped mountains along with the mention of the Indian Army.
The action sequences in the film are brought alive by the direction of Christopher McQuarrie who told a news agency about shooting the heavy-on-action scenes: “We wouldn’t have had permission to shoot a helicopter chase sequence anywhere in the world apart from New Zealand,” he said following the film’s screening for select media from across the world here.
Mission: Impossible - Fallout will see the return of actors Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin, Michelle Monaghan and Sean Harris in their respective roles with new additions of Henry Cavill and Vanessa Kirby.
