Apart from Saif, Kareena has so far worked with Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and will soon be seen with young Imran Khan in “Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu”. After working with Saif in “Tashan” and “Kurbaan”, she will be seen with him again in the upcoming “Agent Vinod”, set for release March 23.
“Kareena looks good with me and there is no comparison! Apart from me, I don’t see anybody (with whom she looks good),” Saif told reporters here on the sidelines of the first poster launch of his production “Agent Vinod”.
Kareena, the leading lady of the spy thriller, was missing from the event Wednesday.
Saif explained: “We had to divide to conquer… she will be seen in future promotional activities for the film.”
The first poster of the movie features only Saif in it. However, he promises that unlike other action films, the actress has a justified role in his film too.
“Kareena has a very strong role in the film. She has done justice to the role and the role has also done justice to her,” Saif said.
The shooting of “Agent Vinod”, directed by Sriram Raghavan, took a while. And Saif denies rumours that the delay ensued due to budget hassles.
“The film taking time to complete are the reports given by media. There were lots of rumours that the film is getting delayed, it’s getting over the budget… everything was just a rumour. Films take time,” he said.
He guarantees that the wait will be worth it, as he said: “The kind of action and locations that we have chosen, I have not seen in much movies. The film must have taken a longer time, but it does not matter as long as the product is interesting.”
The film is said to have dollops of action, but Kareena wasn’t too comfortable with it.
“She doesn’t like doing action, but she is very good at it. She gives pretty intense expressions. As far as I am concerned, I thought it (action) would be fun, but it was very frightening. It’s not easy,” said Saif.
Besides the unique action sequences, “Agent Vinod” will also have a “different” item song, a ‘mujra’ picturised on Kareena.
“We thought let’s go a different way and try something different in terms of expression. I believe even Dinesh Vijan was pushing for a mujra… we needed to make our item a little bit different,” said Saif.
