A key action sequence of Skyfall was due to be shot in India. The producers had requested to shoot on the rooftop of a moving train, as well as inside a tunnel. However, that didn’t materialise.

“Typically, we do visit various countries when we are looking to find locations. So, we did come to India to look. Because of the complexities with the title sequence... we did have a big chase with the cars and the motorcycle and trains,” Broccoli said, adding, “We looked at India as a possibility, but given the traffic, the complexities of having to shoot such a big scene, we would have had to shove off many roads and cause a lot of disruption. We felt it would be too ambitious to do the scene in India.”
