`Agent Vinod` perfect for sequels: Saif Ali Khan

Mumbai: Actor Saif Ali Khan feels that his upcoming action-thriller `Agent Vinod` with Kareena Kapoor has the potential to become a successful franchise.

Though the actor says it is too early to talk about sequels, he admits that the idea has crossed his mind.

"I want to take one step at a time. If the audience like the film and they want more, we would go forward with it. I think the film is perfect for a franchise but it is too early to talk about it," Saif told reporters in an interview.

"The film has taken about three years. I got lots of bumps and bruises along the way but it was worth it because I felt it could be something. If it becomes a franchise, it would be a dream project," he added.

Saif, 41, has produced the film through his Illuminati Films banner besides playing the central character of a RAW agent in the movie, which hits screens on March 23. It has been directed by Sriram Raghavan, who gave Saif his career`s first negative role in `Ekk Hasina Thi`.

"That film was a little ahead of its time but `Agent Vinod` is releasing on the right time. Sriram Raghvan is a very interesting director and he has done something remarkable in this film too," said Saif.

The film`s song `Pungi` is already on its way to become one of the biggest hits of the year. The actor says he contributed a lot to the peppy dance number.

"There is a sequence in the film when Agent Vinod is being watched in a close circuit camera. We wanted to show the audience that Agent Vinod is capable of humour. People may think that he is a copy of James Bond but he is very Indian. Pungi is a lovely song. I made half of the steps myself. It was good fun."
