Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor recently returned from their European holiday. One of the stops was Switzerland, where the couple took a crash course in skiing to prepare themselves for their role in Saif's forthcoming production, Agent Vinod.
Agent Vinod will be shot all over Europe, the Swiss Alps included. A spy thriller, it will have lot of James Bond-esque action scenes. One is a high-end ski chase featuring the couple. While Saif is fairly familiar with skiing (he's at the beginners level), this kind of stylised action requires skiing requires sufficient training.
During their five-day stay in Switzerland, Saif and Bebo took lessons from a ski instructor. A source reveals, "They would take the classes every morning. Kareena, being a novice, took some falls but Saif picked up the ropes rather quickly. He was quite serious and even attempted some of the highest peaks that few beginners would dare to."
Saif confirms that Kareena and he took a special course in skiing in Switzerland for Agent Vinod. "It was for Kareena to learn some skiing as well."
