The team of AGENT VINOD is busy preparing for the Mumbai schedule after completing a grueling 2 month shoot in Latvia. Ironically the spy thriller Agent Vinod is the first Indian film to be shot in the beautiful country situated in Eastern Europe.
Says director Sriram Raghavan, "The landscape in Latvia is exceptionally breath taking. We shot in many different locations across the different cities. We got access to some heritage structures, like old ruins, churches and museums. We tried to cover as much variety as the landscape offers."
In spite of capturing some breath taking shots the shoot at Latvia didn't come easy to the cast and crew of AGENT VINOD who met with various obstacles en route -one being the language barrier which turned out to be quite a challenge.
"It was very difficult to understand their language since not many Latvians speak English. But we had a great team of locals who helped us communicate. They ensured we had a smooth schedule and a great stay." adds Sriram Raghavan.
AGENT VINOD -the coming of age action film starring Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor is soon to begin shooting in Mumbai after having shot in Moscow, Morocco, Paris and Latvia.
