John Travolta visited the widow of mob boss John Gotti to do research for his upcoming movie about the mafia kingpin.  

Travolta arrived Thursday at the Gotti home in New York City to meet with widow Victoria Gotti, her son John "Junior'' Gotti and other key players, reports The New York Post.     

The Post said the "Pulp Fiction'' star was greeted with handshakes and hugs. He brought a gift bag for Victoria Gotti and stayed inside for more than two hours.     

All he would say when he emerged was that he was doing research for the movie.     

John Gotti died in prison in 2002.
