Angelina Jolie hopped onto a crowded Mumbai commuter train to film a scene for a movie about slain journalist Daniel Pearl, who lived and worked in India’s financial and entertainment capital.
Dan Futterman portrays Pearl and Jolie plays his wife, Mariane, in “A Mighty Heart.” The movie is based on an adaptation of Mariane Pearl’s book, “A Mighty Heart: The Brave Life and Death of My Husband Danny Pearl.”
Jolie, 31, had been in the western Indian city of Pune since early October filming the movie. Pune was chosen because of its resemblance to Karachi, Pakistan’s financial center, where Pearl was abducted and killed in 2002 while researching a story on Islamic militancy.
Jolie and Pitt, 42, accompanied by their three children — 5-year-old Maddox, 18-month-old Zahara and 5-month-old Shiloh Nouvel — arrived in Mumbai on Saturday.
On Monday, Jolie, wearing a pale blue T-shirt and khaki trousers, stood in a line to purchase a train ticket. Then Jolie and Futterman, wearing jeans and a white shirt, boarded a train.
They were escorted by bodyguards who held back young students yelling Jolie’s name. Curious onlookers collected outside the train station to catch a glimpse of the actress.
Street scenes were also filmed of Jolie and Futterman, 39, walking near the Gateway of India, a popular tourist destination in downtown Mumbai. They also filmed scenes inside a hair salon and a restaurant.
