Kareena Kapoor starts shooting for Agent Vinod in two weeks. She plays a negative character in it, while beau Saif Ali Khan plays the title role.
An insider reveals, "The first schedule will be in Mumbai. Kareena plays a Pakistani CIA agent in the film, and sports five different looks - a first for her. She will be wearing different looks with prosthetics (think Hrithik's guises in Dhoom 2)."
Kareena is naturally very excited about her role. She believes AV will be a cool and intelligent film. She calls it a very 'Saif style' film. Currently, Bebo is shooting for a shampoo ad in Malaysia. She returns later this week and then heads to Goa for Golmaal 3, then joins Saif on set on May 25. In the meantime, she is in talks with designer Aki Narula for her various looks.
Kareena's character works for a bunch of corporate honchos who want to rake in the profits from a war-like scenario in the Asian subcontinent. But she is actually a spy for the Pakistani government. 'What is interesting is that she and Saif are not romantically paired in the film.'
Kareena says, "I am very excited to be a part of Shriram's film. It's a great script. I am happy that Agent Vinod is starting soon. I am working on my various looks for the film. It's something I haven't attempted before."
Agent Vinod: The plot unfolds
Agent Vinod's character has been moulded on 007, on Jack Bauer (the government agent in the American TV series 24) and on Jason Bourne, the CIA assassin in Robert Ludlum's novels and its film adaptations. Agent Vinod will be filmed at exotic locations all over the globe.
The plot unfolds with a caretaker being murdered and a grave being dug open in Uzbekistan. In Hamburg, a scientist is kidnapped, while in London, a painter is murdered. Elsewhere, an Indian agent is caught spying. He manages to flee and send a warning that someone is planning a conspiracy against India. This is when Agent Vinod steps in to save the country from disaster.
