It has everything that a James Bond film has, guns, trains, cars, bikes, helicopters and girls, actress Kareena Kapoor but actor Saif Ali Khan says that spy thriller Agent Vinod is not like James Bond.
Saif, who presently shooting the climax of Agent Vinod in Delhi, says that his character in the film solve a nuclear problem in India and Asian subcontinent. The film is directed by Sriram Raghavan. Saif Ali Khan says to PTI, “Raghavan and I were trying to find a proper story for this film and we picked up the nuclear issue. It is quite relevant today but at the same time a very engaging adventure. We also searched about the repercussions of a nuclear crisis. A film like Agent Vinod needs a problem like that."
Denying to any kind of comparison with the 007 movies, Saif Ali Khan says, "Agent Vinod is no James Bond. 007 is very British and there was a psychology behind the character. He was the representative of capitalism against communist Russia but it is no longer relevant where as Agent Vinod is a special forces kind of guy and very Indian."
Agent Vinod is the second home production for Saif after the film Love Aaj Kal, starring him with Deepika Padukone. The actor has left no stone un-turned to make the film big. The actor adds, "It is important to have a tight script and a good role. Kareena is perfect for this role. I can't imagine anyone else. I think we both will be great in this movie. Chemistry is in script, directors create it in right moments. Luckily, Agent Vinod has those moments but people will forget Saif and Kareena once they see the film."
We hope the film turns out to be a big money spinner for Saif.
