The cast and crew of latest James Bond film Skyfall felt it was "too ambitious" to shoot certain action sequences for the movie in India, but producer Barbara Broccoli says they haven't ruled out coming to the country for a new 007 instalment, and won't even mind roping in an Indian Bond girl in future.

"We certainly are on a lookout for talented beautiful women. If we make a film in India, we will have an Indian actress," Broccoli said during a web conference from New York with reporters here. 

Directed by Sam Mendes, the latest super spy thriller Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig, is set to release in India Nov 1. The movie features British actress Naomie Harris as the Bond girl, who is usually marked for her glamorous and sophisticated demeanour.

The choice of Bond girl for every 007 movie depends purely on the character, says Broccoli.

"Normally when we are casting for a Bond woman, our casting director looks for Bond women all around the world, and then we go through several rounds (of auditions) for that. And then finally when we reach the finalists, we bring them into Britain to meet Daniel (Daniel Craig).

"Lots of people are considered, it comes down to what the character requires and in this film (Skyfall), we needed a British female agent working alongside Bond," she added.
