An agent in I division, Vijay, playing a flute to an asp, sees Bond come to port and plays the 'Bond' theme with his flute to get his attention. After getting rid of the asp, stating he hates sankes, He takes Bond to the head of I division. He helps James escape from Kamal's men after winning a game with him and helps hit a henchman with a tennis racket. After losing them, they make their way to Q Branch in India and after looking at the gadgets and a little snickering when Bond played with a camera, he offers to give Q a hand and he accepts. While James was on Octopussy's Island, Vijay takes over for Q, who was first observing the island. Later, he is attacked by some hitmen and was slashed at with a yo-yo saw.
