There has been much speculation about who would star opposite Saif Ali Khan in his next production Agent Vinod directed by Sriram Raghavan. Now we can reveal it will be Kareena Kapoor, Saif’s real life ladylove. Originally the leading lady’s role in the spy thriller was much smaller than Saif’s but now that Kareena has joined the cast the part is being expanded. Kareena told Subhash K Jha, “Do you think I’d agree to be part of the film if my role was not as exciting as Saif? I mean can you imagine what would happen?”
She added that their jodi in this film will be sizzling hot! “Saif and I will be smouldering-hot in Agent Vinod. Even the posters will be designed to highlight us as the coolest hot pair.”
Agent Vinod is not going to be a remake of the original film that starred Mahendra Sandhun Raghavan revealed to Rajeev Masand last year saying, “Agent Vinod (1977) is very retro and pulpy which was a big success back then. It is a bit of a pain because its title is terrific but I cannot make a movie like that today. Euro spy movies don’t work these days; we need to find a completely new idiom.”
He says, “It’s a real film set in today’s times and of course, I hope and want it to be as enjoyable as the spy thrillers we love.” The film will not only be full of action it will also have some amazing locations including Russia, Turkey and Italy.
