With RA.ONE nearing the end of its run, Kareena Kapoor is now moving on to her next release AGENT VINOD. While audience as well as critics review did mention that she was one of the brighter spots of the film, especially due to the way she sizzled in 'Chammak Challo', even Kareena would agree that when it came to on-screen chemistry between her and Shahrukh, there wasn't much to offer due to the film's genre.
Now that AGENT VINOD is about to hit the screens, one can well expect the film to be really special for her, courtesy her real life partner producing and acting in it. So can one say that it would be their chemistry that would facilitate in igniting the screen in a big way?
Says Kareena, "See, Saif was my real life partner even during the days of KURBAAN but the film didn't do very well. It ultimately depends upon how a director wants to present his actors. With AGENT VINOD though I can promise that (director) Sriram Raghavan has gone all out to ensure that my pairing with Saif indeed stands out since the script requires that."
One does tend to believe this while also considering the fact that BODYGUARD was a love story in the disguise of an action drama whereas RA.ONE had everything but a love story embedded into the screenplay.
In that context, while one wonders how much scope for romantic rendezvous a spy thriller like AGENT VINOD carries, Kareena says, "AGENT VINOD has to be seen for what it is instead of being conscious of the fact that it features me along with Saif."
While she seems to be quite poised about the future prospects of AGENT VINOD, how is Saif looking forward to the film's release? After all ever since KURBAAN, his only other film has been AARAKSHAN where he merely enjoyed an extended guest appearance of sorts.
"Frankly, Saif's whole life currently revolves around AGENT VINOD. He is super excited about the film and has worked on it with all the passion. You would see that for yourself," smiles Kareena before signing off.
