Tom Cruise fans may have something to cheer as the Hollywood star's long-cherished dream of visiting India may fulfill next year.

The actor, who attended the red carpet premiere of his war drama Valkyrie in Seoul said he was looking forward to visit India.

"It has been a dream of mine to come to India. Hopefully, next year I would come depending on the filming. But I always talk about India to friends who have been there and I also have friends that are from India so I cannot wait to go there," the actor said.

"For me that would be a dream goal of mine. I am looking forward to coming to visit you (fans in India)."

Cruise also congratulated Indians for the award-winning film Slumdog Millionaire.

Asked whether his eye patch in his latest film had gone well with his female fans, he said, "I think the eye patch is really cool. It is part of the character."

Though Valkyrie has not been able to garner much attention in award circles despite its intense subject, the Cruise said he was happy with the response.

"It has been really nice because the outpouring I've got from various friends has been that they were very engaged by the film and found it to be very suspenseful. Different historians have also written in and complimented us on the detail in the picture," he told TimesNow news channel.

Valkyrie is based on the life of German hero colonel Claus con Stauffenberg, who led a failed attempt to kill Adolf Hitler with Cruise playing the lead.
