Saif Ali Khan washing his hands of ‘Agent Vinod’?
The producer-actor insists Agent Vinod wasn’t his dream project, but he said it was before the film released. No surprises for guessing why he is now singing a different tune
Before the release of Agent Vinod, Saif Ali Khan went on and on about how the reason he plunged into film production was to fulfill a burning desire – to make a spy thriller on the lines of Bourne-meets-Bond. Even in an interview to Bollywoodlife, the suave actor-producer had said the same thing: “Agent Vinod is my dream project and I am pleased to tell you that it has turned out really well.” You can read more here.
But since Saif’s dream project Agent Vinod turned into a nightmare of sorts after release, we feel he is washing his hands of the film! He and co-producer Dinesh Vijan threw a shiny shindig to celebrate the film’s success ‘coz they recovered the production costs, but the film’s reviews weren’t half as impressive as the figures. In a recent interview, the actor-producer said that he never considered Agent Vinod his dream project. Clearly, it looks like Bebo’s beau is suffering from selective amnesia.
Meanwhile, we have also found out that Saif has done away with Agent Vinod sequel plans. Thank god for small mercies! We doubt if people would again spend their hard-earned money to watch another travel-show-turned-spy-thriller.
