On a recent trip to London, Dinesh Vijan, the producer of Agent Vinod explained to BollySpice why the film has been delayed.
Dinesh, who owns Illuminati Films with Saif Ali Khan said that the film is only three months late as it was supposed to release in December.
Vijan told BollySpice reporter Sunny Malik: “It was always supposed to release in December 2011. We are three months late but there has been a lot of speculation on this film from the day it started. We had announced it and started shooting in 2010 in June and now we are releasing it in March 2012. But I think, you do take a year and a half to make an action film.”
The young producer went on to say that Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar started shooting at the same time and making an action film takes more time. He said: “Rockstar went on the floors with Agent Vinod, around the same date. The film released in November and we are releasing Agent Vinod in March. There has been a lot of speculation and we stopped filming for about four months because we had a few date issues that we had to sort out. But all is well that ends well.”
We have to agree with Dinesh as the promos of the film have created buzz all around. Directed by Sriram Raghavan, an Illuminati Films production and an Eros International release, Agent Vinod hits UK cinemas on 23rd March 2012.
