Picturesque Dudhsagar waterfall in Goa, India, on the list for Bond 23

05-Sep-2011 • Skyfall

As MI6 first reported back in April this year, the picturesque Dudhsagar waterfall, situated on the Goa-Karnataka border, was on of the top Indian locations selected for a train sequence in the the 23rd James Bond film.

Sources for the Indian Express newspaper confirmed that a recce of the spot, located in the thick jungles on the state border, has already been done and the railway ministry has also given its approval. The South-Western Railway operates train services from near the waterfall.

Some issues related to shooting, however, are yet to be sorted out.

“Height is an issue. For the sequence, they require a particular height, which is not there near this spot. But they have still listed this place,” a source told the paper.

But, even though the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG), a nodal agency which gives permission for film shooting in Goa, is yet to receive an application for the shooting, sources said the next Bond movie would be shot over 40 days from January to March.
