Just yesterday we had informed you about the shooting and release schedule of the much awaited follow up to Saif Ali Khan's first production, the smash hit Imtiaz Ali directed JAB WE MET. Obviously we are talking about the Sriram Raghavan directed AGENT VINOD.
After Saif we decided to talk to the captain of the ship, Sriram Raghavan, who despite being very busy and in the midst of a meeting, spared us some valuable time.
We asked Sriram the question on eveybody's lips - Is this AGENT VINOD a remake of the Deepak Bahry directed Mahendra Sandhu starrer of 1977? And here is what Sriram has to say-"No, that is a misconception. Our AGENT VINOD is a totally new film and its just the title that is the same." What about the budget? "Well, for that you talk to the producer(s)," added the director.
With AGENT VINOD all set to commence in Bombay during the last week of this month we wish the Saif-Sriram team a much bigger triumph than the cult movie EK HASEENA THI.
