Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and “Jurassic World” star Chris Pratt say they are keen to visit India and “would love to” experience the country’s culture.
“Let’s do it,” Lawrence, the world’s highest paid actress, said in an interview to PTI when asked if she and Pratt have any plans to visit India.
“I would love to. It’s really vast and I would love to experience it,” Lawrence said.
Pratt, who stars with Lawrence in Columbia Pictures’ sci-fi action-thriller “Passengers”, too sounded excited on the prospect of visiting India.
“I would love to go to India. I think that’s our next vacation. I want to go and check it out. It’s such a huge, huge nation, so many people, such a beautiful place,” he said in the interview.
Pratt said he loves the movies that have come out of India.
“I feel like I have gotten glimpses into India but I haven’t been able to get there. So I would like to go.”
The actor said he hopes his visit to India will be for vacation and not for work.
“If we came there to promote (a movie), that will be one thing but when you are on work you never get to experience any of the culture. So probably it will be vacation,” he added.
“Passengers”, which released in the US today and will hit Indian theatres on January 6 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, is about two strangers Jim and Aurora, who are on a 120-year journey to another planet on a technologically- advanced “cruise-liner” style space ship when their hibernation pods wake them 90 years too early.
Jim and Aurora are forced to unravel the mystery behind the malfunction as the ship teeters on the brink of collapse, jeopardizing the lives of the several thousand passengers traveling from Earth on the spaceship to the distant planet for starting a new life.
The movie also stars Welsh actor Michael Sheen, who plays “Arthur”, a robotic bartender on board the ship.
