Indian Railways pours water on James Bond's thrilling dream

James Bond
New Delhi, Sep 2: It seems that Indian Railways poured water on the thrilling dream of the famous secret agent, James Bond. The railway minister, Dinesh Trivedi dismissed the plan of the Hollywood film maker to catch Daniel Craig (the actor who plays the role of James Bond) in a frame jumping between two moving trains.

Earlier it was planned that Daniel Craig would be captured moving on the roofs of two trains which would be crowded with people. However, rejecting the whole idea, the railway minister claimed that the scene would have underestimated Indian Railways and and the image of the country in the international level.

Explaining the conditions to shoot such scenes for the movie, Trivedi said, "One of the conditions for allowing the shoot is that they cannot show India or Indian Railways in bad light and the assurances will have to be given to us in writing."

"The film will be viewed across the world where it will seem as if all trains here have people travelling on roof tops, which is not true. Also, travelling on the roof of a train is prohibited by law and that cannot be encouraged," added Trivedi.

According to reports, the producer of the Bond's films asked for permission for Sabarmati in Gujarat or Goa for a site to shoot in, since the film has to show Bond jumping into a sea or a big water body from the train top.

Meanwhile, Trivedi claimed, "all possible help from the railways."
