James Bond set to shoot at Sabarmati in India

Ahmedabad: James Bond 23 featuring Daniel Craig as the legendary British Secret Agent and Judi Dench as ‘M’ is scheduled to shoot in Ahmedabad. Bond 23’s production team including director Sam Mendes and production assistants have recently visited Ahmedabad in Gujarat state of India and decided to have the shoot at the Sabarmati railway yard. The unit would be shooting some stunts of Daniel Craig on a freight train and one of the roads of Ahmedabad.

Interestingly the shooting would be right outside Gandhi’s world famous Sabarmati Ashram. Shooting is scheduled for January-February 2012.

The team had earlier faced difficulties in getting clearances from the Indian Railways

which has to block some tracks for the shooting. The producers have offered to pay

whatever charges and a credit line for the Indian Railways in the titles. They have also at

one point thought of shifting the shoot to South Africa. Now it is all set and the team

would be meeting the Railway Minister on Monday for the final clearances, said sources.
