Hollywood actor Daniel Craig's next James Bond movie titled Bond 23 is scheduled to shoot in India. But the makes of the movie may change the location of the shoot to South Africa. According to reports, the film unit had asked for permission to block the railway tracks in Ahmadabad and Goa for the shooting and the Railway Ministry is yet to grant the permission.
The film Bond 23 has Daniel Craig doing stunts on a freight train. The movie bosses had requested the Indian Railway Ministry for the permission to block the railway tracks for the shooting of the movie. They have been waiting for the order for the past three months. The filming was to be done in October-November, but it has been postponed to January-February.
According to reports, trains are the backbone of the film Bond 23 and two tracks need to be blocked for eight hours a day over five to six days to accommodate shooting. But the railway department is reportedly finding it difficult to block tracks for such a long duration and it is even difficult to divert the trains.
However, the bosses of the James Bond movie say that blocking the tracks is very essential for the shooting of Bond 23. So they have postponed the filming and are eagerly waiting for response of the railway department. If the permission is not granted, they will be forced to change the location, probably to South Africa.
