Mumbai, Mar 11: “Every second girl today is wearing a bikini, so there is no need for my character Simran to wear one too”, says Kareena Kapoor on her role in beau Saif's Agent Vinod, releasing March 23.
Kareena told HT: “She's (Simran) is not your usual Bond girl. Sure, she's glamorous, but she looks hot and mysterious even when fully clothed in a pair of jeans and a shirt or a full-length gown.”
Agent Vinod's first promo had a flash of bikini beauties and there was speculation that Kareena, alike Tashan (2008), would once again sport a bikini in this film, but Kareena has flatly denied this.
The action-packed film has been shot in 12 countries including Morocco and Latvia. It is along the lines of the Hollywood franchises, namely The Bourne Series, The Adventures of Tintin and James Bond.
On the delayed release of the film, Kareena says, “The delayed release (from December to March) works for us, because we've had a breather since RA.One, Mission Impossible IV and Don 2 that were released last year and the audience is now ready for the adrenaline rush of another thriller. And I'm confident I'll make the best pair with Saif this year.”
