Even before the release of the much-awaited action-spy movie Agent Vinod, actor Saif Ali Khan has expressed his desire of making it a franchise. If Agent Vinod, which is produced by Saif under the banner of Illuminati Films, turns out to be a box-office hit, then Saif would consider making sequels to it, much like the James Bond series, of which, approximately 22 films have been made so far.
Agent Vinod features Saif Ali Khan along with his real life lady-love Kareena Kapoor. When asked about it, Saif said, "Hope so, if the film does well and audiences likes it. If it is popular, then of course we will look forward to making it a series." The Sriram Raghavan-directed venture, which was beset with teething problems in its early stages, will finally release on March 23.
Saif Ali Khan is very much sure of the quality of the film and he is not worried about time and cost of its making. "It is a big and interesting film so it is bound to be in news be it for the delay or the film getting over-budget. We don't have to bother about it. The minute the first trailer comes out, nobody thinks why delay...late and all," the PTI quotes Saif as saying.
The Bollywood actor added, "Films take time and we were little inexperienced, as we thought we can do it one year. But with the kind of action, the kind of locations we are shooting in, the kind of things we did for the movie...these things took a longer time than I thought of. But it doesn't matter. As we all are satisfied with the finished product and happy to share it with everyone."
