While Dubai was busy enjoying its Eid celebrations and holidays, Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise quietly went where no man has gone before – right at the top of Burj Khalifa.
During a scene being shot for Mission Impossible IV in Dubai on Friday, a figure was clearly perched on top of the skyscraper which stands at 2,717 feet. Reports are it was Cruise himself, known for shooting his own stunts.
The Burj Khalifa has featured prominently in the Dubai shooting schedule of the film and Cruise, reprising his role as superspy Ethan Hunt, just a few days ago was running around the windows below the tower's Observation Deck, 124 floors above the ground.
According to British tabloid The Daily Mail, Cruise apparently relived his Days of Thunder glory recently on a night out.
The actor took 75 of his Mission Impossible crew and castmates, including British actor Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner, out go-karting at the Dubai Kartdrome.
And he even used his character's name from the 1990 race car film.
A source says: 'Cruise used the name Cole Trickle, his character from Days as his moniker during the outing.'
Generous Cruise also treated the whole group to burgers and fries.
