New Delhi, May 26 (PTI) Actor Jennifer Connelly says she had nostalgic memories of watching Tom Cruise in 1986 blockbuster "Top Gun", but she never thought she would be invited to be a part of the iconic film's sequel over three decades later.

"Top Gun: Maverick" brings back Cruise as the US aviator Pete "Maverick" Mitchell and also features Connelly among the new set of characters.

Recalling her memories of watching the original film, Connelly said what stayed with her were the scenes of F-14 fighter jets flying in the desert and Cruise in his uniform.
