"Don't watch 'Agent Vinod' for an off-screen couple"
Mumbai: Saif Ali Khan's latest offering 'Agent Vinod' has been garnering more attention due to his real-life equation with Kareena Kapoor than their onscreen pairing, which the actor feels should not be.
"People should never come to see an off-screen couple in the film, they should come to see two actors on screen. They should come to see a director's film or simply to watch a movie.
"The problem is what happens behind the scene between two people becomes more important than anything else. Then people's expectations change and that overshadows everything,"
Saif said at an event here last evening. "So we thought it was sensible to promote the film separately so that people take the film seriously," he said.
This is the fourth film where Saif and Kareena are sharing screen space, after 'Omkara', 'Tashan' and 'Kurbaan'. Directed by Sriram Raghavan, 'Agent Vinod' is up for release on March 23.
"Sriram (director) has has not made this kind of a commercial film ever. I would say watch the movie for Sriram. I feel star cast adds to the film, but that should not be the reason to watch the film," Saif said. PTI
