Dubai: Gulf News reader Mohammad Arshad played paparazzo for the evening when he spotted Hollywood star Tom Cruise at Ski Dubai, Mall of the Emirates, on Thursday night.

“I heard from the mall authorities that he was heading in there, so I paid for the ticket for me and my wife and went inside,” Arshad told Gulf News. “He had an Indian bodyguard who was very nice. He’s very good-looking and fit - I could feel his abs!”
 
After posing for a picture, Cruise, who is currently filming the fourth instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise in Dubai, then strapped on his skis with some help from the Ski Dubai staff and went for a slice through the snow, said Arshad.

A Ski Dubai spokesman confirmed to Gulf News that the star was at Ski Dubai but would not comment as to whether any of the film will be shot there.
