Kabir Bedi is Gobinda, henchman of villainous Afghan prince Kamal Khan (Louis Jourdan). He is Khan’s personal servant, bodyguard and assassin. James Bond (Roger Moore) is relentlessly pursued by Gobinda throughout his mission to avenge 009’s death, discover the source of jewellery smuggling, and thwart a renegade Soviet general by preventing World War III. But who is the mysterious Octopussy controlling a cult of acrobatic tattooed ladies from her floating palace in India?

Before the film, our guest speaker will be Del Singh who tied Kabir Bedi’s turban for many of the scenes shot in the UK. He will tell us the story of how Kabir Bedi ended up wearing his school uniform turban and also share his memories and photographs of hanging around with the cast and crew behind the scenes of Octopussy.
