Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have received threats on their lives from members of terrorist group al-Qaeda.

The couple are currently in India shooting the film A Mighty Heart, based on the life of Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was killed at the hands of al-Qaeda militants in Pakistan in 2002.

According to The Financial Times, British security experts were flown into Pune, India, earlier this week, after being alerted by authorities in neighboring Pakistan that the couple might be a target because of the political nature of the film.

The terror fear is also said to be the reason behind the decision to shoot the movie in Pune, as opposed to Pakistan, where the events actually took place.

After consulting with various intelligence agencies, Indian officials have provided the couple with extensive security while they are in Pune, according to Intelligence Bureau sources in New Delhi.
