Anil Kapoor missing from MI 4 trailer

A lot has been written about Anil Kapoor`s presence in one of the biggest Hollywood franchises, ‘Mission Impossible 4’, but his absence from the movie`s first trailer has raised questions among his fans. Fans took to Twitter to express their resentment with Anil`s no-show in the trailer of ‘Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol’, which is otherwise high on action from Hollywood star Tom Cruise, who plays the role of spy Ethan Hunt.
"Mission Impossible - 4: Ghost Protocol - ...Ethan Hunt. Eminem`s rap. But where`s Anil Kapoor & India," posted Vivek Ranjit, while Manish Gaekwad wrote: "Mission Impossible 4 trailer out, and its 2 mins long, and still no sight of Anil Kapoor, is this why the film is called MI: Ghost Protocol?"
Another fan, Raghav Modi posted: "Ah! Typical that the Indian actor Anil Kapoor is nowhere to be seen in the MI: Ghost Protocol Trailer. Disappointing." Some fans even mocked at the trailer and made fun that the actor, who made a mark internationally with Danny Boyle`s Oscar-winning film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and a TV series ‘24’, has not got any footage in the debut trailer of the much-awaited instalment of the movie.
"I spotted Anil Kapoor in the Mission Impossible 4 trailer. He is in thin air!" posted someone under the name of sarfrazhaan, while another fan by the name of helloanand wrote: "Anil Kapoor is playing the role of Mr.India in MI4. That`s why you can`t see him in the trailers." Apart from Tom Cruise, the movie features Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg. According to, Anil plays the role of a man called Brij Nath in it.
Of what Indian editor and director Shirish Kunder posted on Twitter, it seems other Bollywood actors were quite jealous of Anil`s role in the international project.
