“- Good morning. Name’s Bond. l believe you have a reservation.

– We’ve been expecting you. l hope you have a pleasant stay.

– l’m sure l will.”

James Bond (Roger Moore) and the receptionist

Bond’s contact in India, Sadruddin (Albert Moses), booked him a hotel room at the Shiv Niwas Palace.

This residence is not chosen at random, the fact of being a client there opens the door to the casino in which Bond (Roger Moore) will meet Kamal Khan (Louis Jourdan) and challenge him with his Fabergé egg.

Once back at the hotel, Bond is greeted by Magda (Kristina Wayborn) who will “succumb” to his charms and steal the famous egg, which the Q department has equipped with a beacon.
