Saif Ali Khan, who has produced the upcoming spy thriller 'Agent Vinod' alongwith Dinesh Vijan, says the film has the potential to cross the 100 crore mark. "The film will be released both in multiplexes and single screens and it has the potential to cross Rs 100 crore in revenue and I look forward to it," Saif, who was here to promote the film, told PTI.
Produced at a cost of Rs 60 crores, the film was completed in 19 months. It will be released in 3,500 screens globally including 2,500 in India on March 23. Saif, 41, who also plays the lead role in the film, said "it will give value for money," adding, "The film has been produced keeping Indian sensitives in mind." Dinesh said, "It is a fun movie with a very Indian hero.
The film has been shot keeping Indian sensibilities in mind. It is a realistic film but larger than life." Describing it as a fast-paced film, Dinesh said the film was shot in 12 countries including Riga, Latvia, Morocco, Russia, Uzbekistan, UK and India.
Saif, known for his roles in the cult movie 'Dil Chahta Hai', 'Parineeta' and 'Omkara', said he had gone to Vietnam for a couple of weeks to undergo training in action for the film.
He said he did all the stunts himself. "In India we do the stunts and we have good technicians in India. What we need is good writers." Saif described his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor, the heroine of the film as a "phenomenal actor. She is just made for the film." The film is written and directed by Sriram Raghavan. Pritam Chakraborty has provided music for the film which will be distributed by Illuminati Films owned by Saif and Eros Entertainment. PTI
