In the past, there were ru­mours of a few In­dian hero­ines be­ing of­fered a part in the Bond fran­chise. Aish­warya Rai Bachchan was ap­par­ently a con­tender for a role. It was re­ported that for­mer Bond Pierce Bros­non had rec­om­mended her name to the makers. An­other ac­tor who was con­sid­ered was Freida Pinto, who, post the suc­cess of Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire (2008), had be­come quite pop­u­lar. But later, the makers found her to be too young for the role. There were also mur­murs of Bi­pasha Basu be­ing in the run­ning for a role in one of the fran­chise’s ear­lier films.
