The Elusive Mr & Mrs Smith
Brad and Angelina are supposedly in Pune, India but one one’s seen them. So are they there, or aren’t they? Above is a hotel employee of Pune’s Le Meridien standing guard over equipment believed to belong to Brad & Angelina‘s three children — Maddox, Zahara, and Shiloh. Here’s a recent article published from the Times of India newspaper thanks to Gabriella!!
The cloak of secrecy shroading the arrival of Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in Pune was so strong that through the stars are believed to have arrived and have chcked into their suites at Pune’s Le Meridien hotel in the afternoon, no one was willing to say for sure that the stars had finally arrived.
Jolie and Pitt — with their three children, nannies and bodyguards in tow — are believed to have landed at Pune’s Lohagaon airport at 2:45PM in a plane chartered from Gautam Singhania’s MillionAir fleet in Mumbai.

Three cars whisked the group away to the Le Meridien hotel, which the stars are believed to have entered through the staff entrance. Sources say Brangelina – in Pune to shoot for A Mighty Heart, a film based on a book by Marianne Pearl, wife of slain journalist Daniel Pearl — had booked eight suites at the hotel.
The hotel management, of course, refused to say whether the stars had arrived. “We can’t confirm if they are here,” Jaswinder Narang, general manager said. But the fact that room service had started servicing the rserved suits and that a security guard had been posted at the spot told another story.
Having signed strict confidentiality agreements, those involved with the production of A Mighty Heart were also tight-lipped. Kailash Surendranath — responsible for line production of the film in whcih Jolie stars as Marianne Pearl — would only say that he was scheduled to join A Mighty Heary‘s production team next week.
Baby seats and boxes of baby equipment for the two babies — four-month-old Shiloh Nouvel and 19-month-old Zahara — spotted by journalists also hinted that the Jolie-Pitt might have arrived.
But seeing is believing. As Sam, a British journo, parked in Pune along with paparazzi from England, France, and Switzerland put it: “I won’t believe they are here till I see them.”
