Oscar winner Halle Berry is ready to wow us with her acting skills in the upcoming science fiction and adventure drama ‘Cloud Atlas’. A glimpse of Berry in a sari in the trailer has already made us curious and when in.com spoke to the actress about her experience, she revealed that carrying off the whole six yards wasn’t exactly a cakewalk! Excerpts from the interview:
How challenging was it to portray six different roles for 'Cloud Atlas'?
I am playing multiple characters in the film which I haven’t done before. In one story, I play the role of a Spanish woman and in the other, of a German. Each role connects to the other. It’s one of the most interesting concepts I’ve heard and worked on. Cloud Atlas is a film that came with many challenges
How was it like working with Tom Hanks?
Working with Tom Hanks was a learning experience for me. He is such a wonderful actor. Every actor has something to learn from their co-stars
Had you heard of the novel before you signed the film?
Of course. David Mitchell’s novel is an award winning best-seller. I was very excited when I was approached for the adaptation of the novel.
You wore a sari for Cloud Atlas. How difficult was it to carry off the outfit?
Initially, I found it a little difficult to walk. I was scared I would trip. But luckily, that didn’t happen.
How difficult was it to work with three different directors for the same movie?
It was amazing. When I signed the film, people were a little skeptical about my decision as the film has three directors. But they have done such a magnificent job and you’ll agree when you see the film.
How familiar are you with Bollywood and its actors? Would you ever consider starring in a Bollywood movie?
Unfortunately, I haven’t got a chance to catch any Indian films. But I have heard that Indian films have produced great actors. And if everything goes well and I’m approached, I’d surely do a cameo in a Bollywood film.

"You remind me of Shabana Azmi," guffaws our don't-give-a-damn hero to the social activist heroine. In the first-half they clash over idlis, ideologies and idle chatter. Mismatched as they are, and we are reminded twice that she is older, Kareena Kapoor-Khan and Imran Khan trudge along cutely till mid-point after which the narrative shuffles noisily into a village in Gujarat where it all falls apart.
"Last Vegas" is a funny, heartwarming and a touching buddy film about ageing and male bonding whose premise is so very much like the 2009 released film "The Hangover". But unlike in "The Hangover", these four buddies are geriatrics who jam up after 58 years of separation.
