Hollywood actress and United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie (L) shakes hands with India's Minister of State for External Affairs Anand Sharma before their meeting in New Delhi, November 5, 2006. 

Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie met Indian junior foreign minister Anand Sharma on Sunday and discussed the problems of refugees and how Indian freedom hero Mahatma Gandhi was still relevant to conflicts around the world. 

Jolie, who is in India shooting a film with partner and actor Brad Pitt, is also a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. On Saturday she met Afghan and Burmese refugees living in New Delhi.

"The wonderful thing that I have learned since I have been in India is there are many needs for your own people and yet you have all been so gracious and been so open to many, many refugees over the years," Jolie said after meeting Sharma.

Sharma said they had talked about "Indian traditions and also the great influence of Mahatma Gandhi and his philosophy of peace and non-violence".

Gandhi is an icon of India's independence movement which ended in its freedom from British colonial rule in 1947. Sharma said India acknowledged "with appreciation the good work" which Joie has done in Sudan's Darfur region, Cambodia and Ivory Coast.

Jolie and Pitt have been shooting "A Mighty Heart" in the western city of Pune. The film is based on the life of American journalist Daniel Pearl who was killed in the Pakistani city of Karachi in 2002 while researching a report on the aftermath of the September 11 attacks.

Jolie is playing the role of Pearl's wife in the film which is bring produced by Pitt.
