Mighty Heart in Mumbai

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie, sex-pot Oscar winner turned inspired humanitarian, is currently filming in Mumbai (the movie, called A Mighty Heart, is about the real-life 2002 slaying of American reporter Daniel Pearl).

But true tabloid-junkies care less about the film than they do about Jolie’s personal life.

Celebrity bloggers have been shvitsn over gossip that Brangelina is looking to adopt an Indian child. According to Perez Hilton, the couple recently spent time at the Bharatiya Samaj Seva Kendra family adoption center, where orphanage director Roxana Kalyanvala told In Touch Magazine, “every move and every look of the couple was filled with love for our children. “

Not all of Brangelina’s publicity has been so positive.

Jolie’s bodyguards were accused Friday of manhandling parents during a shoot near Mumbai’s Anjuman-e-Islam school.

One guard was also overheard calling a parent a “bloody Indian.” Earlier today, Jolie released a statement in response, saying:

“As for this horrible rumor that someone referred to a local man as a ‘bloody Indian,’ let me say this: I would never work with anyone that was derogatory towards another man’s race.”

Three of Jolie’s bodyguards–all British nationals–have subsequently been arrested.
