"Bhuj is a dusty, walled fort town in a remote corner of north-western India. With plenty of soldiers. Pakistan is only 70km away, and given the delicate nature of relations between Islamabad and New Delhi, the Indian government regards the area as 'highly sensitive'. So all foreigners are required to register with the police. In big letters, my little registration card reads: 'Please note that landscape photography is prohibited.' Interesting. Did anyone tell them we have come here to shoot a film?"

I saw Lagaan yesterday, so here's a link detailing the (mis)adventures of one of the british actresses.
