1. Aishwarya Rai To Appear in Bond 21?

    By Tim Roth on 2003-04-05

    According to the "Times of India" and "Jam! Showbiz", Indian actor Aishwarya Rai may be the next Bond girl to star alongside Pierce Brosnan.

    "They’re keen to cast her," Rai’s secretary Hari Singh was quoted as saying in the newspaper. He said an international agency has approached Rai, a former Miss World.

    This leads to speculation. One is that the script is already finished and Bond is yet to go another time to an Asian country, India for instance. But there are as well some doubts. Why would EON hire an international agency to cast Rai? Bond Castings mostly have taken place in Los Angeles at MGM in the last 10 years. Additionally it could just be a marketing joke of Aishwarya’s private secretary with the aim to get some publicty. We’ll have to wait and see, but Commanderbond.Net will keep you informed!
