Imtiaz to remake My Girlfriend Is An Agent
Get ready for a wild action rom-com, with UTV officially buying the rights of the 2009 South Korean blockbuster My Girlfriend Is An Agent (MGIAA) to remake it in Hindi. MGIAA set new box office records in South Korea as it opened number one at the box office and stayed in the top ten for nine consecutive weeks.
This exciting venture has many firsts. It sees acclaimed director Imtiaz Ali (Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal, Rockstar) step in as a creative producer of the project and his wife, Preety Ali's foray into film production as a producer. She has recently set up a production house named PI films (the co-producer with UTV on MGIAA). Choreographer Bosco of the famous Bosco-Caesar duo diversifies his talent in MGIAA to become the director of the project.
Commenting on the development, Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures says, "Itís great to be collaborating with Imtiaz, Preety and Bosco on this really exciting project. From the day our team at UTV saw MGIAA, we knew it was a film we just had to remake in Hindi. The characters of the two main leads are so endearing and the situations they find themselves in so hilarious, that itís the perfect recipe for an action rom-com! We showed the film to Imtiaz and he felt just the same. Getting Bosco on board to helm the project puts it in the perfect zone creatively and the whole team is now raring to go."...being a human...
