Roger Moore and the rest of the cast used Udaipur’s Lake Pichola and islands as the backdrop for the thirteenth James Bond instalment, Octopussy when they began filming in 1982. A huge amount of the filming was conducted in Udaipur, with the Monsoon Palace serving as the exterior of Kamal Khan’s palace, the hotel which Bond himself stayed in during the movie was the Shiv Niwas Palace and the Lake Palace, now an exclusive five star hotel, and Jag Mandir were both used for scenes set at Octopussy’s palace.
