Brad Pitt’s anticipating the release of ‘Killing them Softly’, a thriller that gets Hollywood’s favourite actor back to suspense thrillers- a genre he seems to be a pro at! Brad says, “'Killing Them Softly' has a political agenda - one that it isn't too keen on hiding. It is an adaptation of a George V. Higgins novel about two low lives who make the unwise decision to rob a mob-funded card game and the hitman tasked with taking them down”
Few know that the actor, who played Achilles in the epic movie Troy was supposed to be paired opposite Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan for the role of Briseis, but Ash had to turn the offer down. “Given a chance, I would like to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan because she's a versatile actor. She has worked brilliantly in films like 'The Mistress of Spices', 'The Last Legion', 'The Pink Panther 2' and 'Provoked' to name a few," said Pitt, adding "She is one of the most popular actresses of Bollywood, who has achieved huge acclaim in the west for her style, beauty and acting skills. I think we missed an opportunity to be cast together for the movie 'Troy'.”
Brad is also keen on doing some good Bollywood masala. The 46-year old actor has heard a lot about the industry and has also been here for shooting movies like ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’. He says, “Indian cinema seems to be growing very well at its own pace. I would love to work in a Bollywood film as there is so much drama and colour in the films there," Pitt told in an email interview.
"The filmmaking, I hear, has evolved a lot in India and of late we have witnessed some good films making a presence at the Oscars and the world stage. That tells you a lot about the quality of the actors and the films. You never know when I might decide to work in a Bollywood film and do one of those dance numbers with the whole crew in the backdrop!”
We’re sure the filmmakers in India would go to any lengths to sign this superstar. Should he come in, maybe we’ll get his better half Angelina Jolie to feature in Bollywood too? Well, only time will tell. But this hot Jodi aside, we wonder if he’s aware of the famous jodis of Bollywood. Not only aware, Pitt surprised us with his favourite too!
“To be honest, I really think Saif and Kareena can be called Bollywood's sexiest couple so far. I am glad to know they are getting married soon. I wish them all the success for a happy married life,” he said!
Whoa! Welcome to Bollywood, Brad!
