‘Rockstar’ director Imtiaz Ali has a new ‘Girlfriend’
Cineswami takes a look at the happenings in Bollywood this week
Rockstar has just hit cinemas, but director Imtiaz Ali is not one to rest on his laurels. He’s already into his next venture; a remake of 2009’s Korean hit My Girlfriend Is An Agent, where Ali will don the hat of creative producer. And no, the film won’t be a rip-off as Bollywood normally does. UTV Motion Pictures have officially acquired the remake rights and are on board as co-producers. This will be the first film for Ali’s wife Preety’s newly formed company PI Films. Choreographer Bosco, that is 50 percent of the Bosco-Caesar choreographer duo, will make his directorial debut. The film was a runaway hit in Korea and tells the story of two spies, once in love but now bitter rivals, on a mission to stop a Russian crime group from stealing an advanced chemical weapon. Wonder how that plotline will be transposed to an Indian context, but the talented Imtiaz is bound to find a way. Click here to read more
Imtiaz Ali turns producer for UTV for ‘My Girlfriend is an Agent’ remake
Rockstar director Imtiaz Ali has taken up the role of a creative producer for UTV Motion Pictures’ official Hindi remake of the South Korean film My Girlfriend is an Agent. This project has been undertaken by both Imtiaz and his wife Preety Ali, who has forayed into the world of films just like her husband, with her new production house PI Films. UTV has finalised Bosco (of choreographer duo Bosco-Caeser fame) as the director of the film. Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO, UTV Motion Pictures seems to be quite excited about the project and is happy to collaborate with the trio. Apparently the film has been a huge commercial success in South Korea, and after watching it, UTV head honchos were pretty much sure about remaking it in Hindi. At least it’s better than remaking a Murder 2 without giving credit!
