The James Bond movies starring SIR Sean Connery are set to be turned into Bollywood classics.

Producer Ashok Amritraj plans to over dub Connery's Scottish lilt with an Indian voiceover actor for films including DR NO and Goldfinger.

Ashok says, "The younger generation in India does not know the early James Bond movies.

"They had tremendous charm and were very entertaining."

The producer, a former sporting champion, was inspired after enjoying a game of tennis with current Bond legend Pierce Brosnan.
