Muscat: Bollywood actors Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor will attend the premiere of their film ‘Agent Vinod’ at the seventh edition of the Muscat International Film Festival (MIFF) on March 25. A news channel has quoted the organisers, as saying in a press release that the Bollywood spy thriller is being premiered for the first time at the festival.
The film has been directed by Sriram Raghavan under the banner of Saif Ali Khan’s home production, Illuminati Films.
"A bit of Tintin, a bit of Bond, a bit of Alistair McLean and well, a little bit of fun and frolic and a lot of adventure…that is what ‘Agent Vinod’, the much awaited Bollywood flick is all about," said Saif Ali Khan in a statement issued here.
The movie was shot in Morocco, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Latvia, besides other countries.
MIFF Chairman, Dr Khalid Al Zadjali, who has the honour of making Oman’s first ever feature film Boom, was quoted, as saying: "This movie’s entry is ground-breaking as far as the nascent cinema industry in Oman is concerned."
He said that it would be great to have movie stars like Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor visiting Muscat for the MIFF.
