Daniel Craig is the new ‘Bond ambassador’ of the Indian Railways
Now we all know that the famous imaginary spy is going to visit India soon to shoot sequences for his latest movie, Bond 23. But what we didn’t know is that the Indian Railways which will be hosting many of his stunts has managed to extract a neat deal with the production house. As part of the agreement, IR will be able to hire Bond actor Daniel Craig as a brand ambassador for a season. Surprised? Here are the details.
Indian Railways PRO Chabbu Kumar told Humor Unplugged that the deal has almost been finalized and EON productions will soon sign the agreement. “Yes, he will be our brand ambassador and will be seen doing many risky stunts on our trains – including using the restroom. The production house has agreed to all our demands and we have asked them to revert with details on how they plan to take this forward. We will provide them all the assistance and equipment they need,” Kumar said.
Railways sources have also confirmed that Craig has already practiced a round of stunts during a hushed up visit to Mumbai recently. He did train surfing, participated in a live derailment and even tried to shift gears on a diesel engine. As part of the deal, the Bond star will appear in a few commercials praising the railways and the railway minister. Former railway minister Lallo Prasad Yadav will also make his Hollywood debut with the movie and will be seen in the walkover role of a rail safety analyst.
