Tara Sharma to interview Daniel Craig in NY


MUMBAI: While the latest Bond flick Casino Royale is all set to release on 17 November, Pix will be flying actor Tara Sharma to New York City to interview Daniel Craig, the newest James Bond.

Sharma will interview Craig, Eva Green (the new Bond Girl), Martin Campbell (the director), and the cast and crew of Casino Royale. She will also be one of the first in people in the world to see the film in a special screening of the movie on 3 November. Her meetings with the cast and crew will then begin on 4 November.

“I am extremely nervous and excited. I am a big Bond fan and I just love Daniel Craig. It’s thrilling to be one of the first to see the movie in New York City too. I’ve also been doing a lot of homework, as I will be interviewing artists of international caliber and so I want to be well prepared for the meetings,” says Sharma.

On 17 November, Sony Pictures Entertainment releases Casino Royale. The film is said to be very closely based on the original novel written by Ian Fleming, which shows us how Bond first got his “double-O” license.

PIX will be airing a special show featuring Sharma’s interviews with the cast and crew of Casino Royale. This episode will also present ‘behind the scenes’ footage. It will also be aired on all the Sony channels (Sony, Max and Sab) in Hindi.

Pix business head Sunder Aaron says, “Pix is growing at a fast pace so it’s important we continue to engage the viewers in our dedicated Pix community. While Pix shows English movies, we are also an Indian channel, so are committed to providing quality, original content for our viewers. It’s also great to be the official TV partner for Casino Royale as this allows us to create exciting, unique promotions for the movie that involve Pix, our other networks, Sony Electronics and Casino Royale.”
