Actor Daniel Craig’s swimming trunks, which he wore in the James Bond movie Casino Royale, are up for sale at a charity auction and are expected to sell for Rs 2,64,150 - Rs 4,40,250. Along with it, other memorabilia from Bond’s films are also being put up for auction, mainly online.
The grab bag of 50 lots also includes a belt with a golden buckle from The Man with the Golden Gun, an underwater backpack from The Spy Who Loved Me, cufflinks from For Your Eyes Only and an Aston Martin from Quantum of Solace.
The collectables — from each of Bond’s 22 films and the next instalment, Skyfall — will be auctioned off at Christie’s to mark the 50th anniversary of the spy franchise’s first movie, Dr No, in 1962. Proceeds will be sent to a dozen charities, including UNICEF. Meanwhile, Quantum of Solace Bond girl Olga Kurylenko has rubbished rumours that she is dating actor Tom Cruise.
