Apparently, the official financers of the film, Eros International, wanted to rework the budget of the film and cut down numbers, something that producers from Illuminati Films, Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan, were not happy about. Any compromise on the film was not acceptable to the producers. This led to disagreement and fall out between Eros and Illuminati films.
It is being said that Cinemax has now stepped in and will now be the official presenter of Agent Vinod. When we contacted co-producer Dinesh Vijan to confirm this news, he avoided commenting on the presenter of the film. "There are no budget issues. We are going ahead with the same budget we started off with and the film is being produced by Illuminati films. Any involvement of Cinemax is something I am not aware off," he said.
Agent Vinod is all set to go on floors this week and has quite a feisty itinerary to talk about. The shoot starts off in Morocco and the crew will be shooting in all the talked about European countries like Amsterdam the locales in east of Europe, coming back to Delhi eventually. The film will be directed by Sriram Raghavan.
Agent Vinod, the film that's been in the news, thanks to its starcast Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, has cut all ties with Eros International. Grapevine says that budgets were an issue.
