  • My Girlfriend Is an Agent to get Bollywood remake
  • Nov 11, 2011
  •  

     
    The South Korean hit <My Girlfriend Is an Agent>will be seeing an official Hindi remake with the major Indian production company UTV Motion Pictures and Bollywood filmmaker Imtiaz Ali (Rockstar, Jab We Met)co-producing.
     
    The original romantic action comedy was directed by SHIN Terra, with popular stars KIM Ha-neul and KANG Ji-hwan in the leads. The film is about two secret agents hiding their identities from each other while trying to stop a Russian crime organization from stealing an advanced chemical weapon.
     
    My Girlfriend Is an Agent clocked up more than 4 million admissions after Lotte Entertainment released it in April, 2009.
     
    Sales agent M-line Distribution was involved in the remake deal with UTV. This marks a notable development as Bollywood films had notoriously often done unofficial remakes of foreign films, as in the case of Zinda (2006), which most reviewers consider a remake of PARK Chan-wook’s <Old Boy> (2003).
     
    Acclaimed choreographer Bosco, whose credits include 3 Idiots and Swades: We the People, will make his directorial debut with the remake of <My Girlfriend Is an Agent>. The film will also mark Imtiaz’s wife, Preety Ali's first production with her company PI Films.
     
    "It is very exciting. It seems like full on fun - both the film and the making. A crazy, high energy noholds barred roller coaster with this highly huggable hero and highly hyper heroine. Most exciting for me is that Bosco is directing it. I don’t think many people know how to put fun on screen like Bosco,” said Imtiaz Ali in a press statement.
