New Delhi: 'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol', the fourth in the hugely successful series, hit the Indian theatres on Thursday. Actor Anil Kapoor, who had made his foray into Hollywood with the Oscar-winning movie 'Slumdog Millionaire' (2008) by Danny Boyle, has a cameo role in the Tom Cruise starrer.

The film, directed by Brad Bird, also features Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Paula Patton. It was released in India on December 16. Kapoor plays the character of Brijnath, a business tycoon and playboy in the film. IBNLive's Jhinuk Sen is catching the first day, first show of MI4 and live tweeting from the theatre!
