Tom Cruise was on a two-day visit to India to promote his the film here. "India is a huge market to promote films... it is a largest place from business point of view also," Anil said.

In the fourth instalment of Mission Impossible series, Anil plays the role of an Indian business tycoon Brij Nath.

The film, directed by Brad Bird, also features Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Paula Patton. It will be released in India on December 16.
