Many people don’t know it but Roger Moore had a particular connection with India; many Indian fans consider him as the best for the Bond character. His movie Octopussy was mostly filmed in Udaipur, Rajasthan. Locations included the Monsoon Palace, Lake Palace, Jag Mandir and the Shiv Niwas Palace. Interestingly his star-cast also had Indian artists.
RIP sir, we will miss you!
