Mr.Ferguson was atteding the new exhibition at London's Madame Tussaud's to mark the latest Bond film, 'Quantum of Solace', set for an October 31 release.

A movie impact

Sanjay Gadhvi is baffled and upset because his film "Kidnap" finds itself at the centre of a controversy, perhaps "inspiring" the threat to kidnap Saurav Ganguly's daughter. Following newspaper reports that Saurav Ganguly has recieved threats through post that if he does not pay up Rs. 2 crore as advance ransom, his six-year-old daughter Sana would be kidnapped, Sanjay Gadhvi is not pleased. "This makes me terribly upset. First I have to go through all that the critics have said about the film and now people talking about my film inspiring a kidnap!" he says.
