Korean Blockbuster ‘My Girlfriend Is An Agent’ set for Bollywood Remake
The project will be directorial debut for well-known choreographer Bosco and coproduced by UTV Motion Pictures along with “Rockstar” director Imtiaz Ali.
Leading banner UTV Motion Pictures announced that it will produce the official Hindi remake of 2009 Korean blockbuster My Girlfriend Is An Agent. The as-yet-untitled project will be the debut directorial venture by Bosco, one half of well-known Bollywood choreographer duo Bosco-Caeser. Imtiaz Ali – currently riding high with the success of his latest film Rockstar – will serve as the film’s creative producer while his wife Preety will be co-producer via their newly setup PI Films banner.
Details about the film’s cast are still to be announced.
My Girlfriend Is An Agent set new box office records in South Korea opening at number one and staying in the top 10 for nine consecutive weeks. Directed by Shin Tae-Ra and starring Kim Ha-Neul and Kang Ji-hwan, the film tells an endearing story of two spies, once in love but now at each other’s throats, on a mission to stop a Russian crime group from stealing an advanced chemical weapon.
“From the day our team at UTV saw My Girlfriend Is An Agent, 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 it’s the perfect recipe for an action rom-com!” said UTV Motion Pictures CEO Siddharth Roy Kapur.
“It is very exciting. It seems like full on fun – both the film and the making. A crazy, high energy no holds barred roller coaster with this highly huggable hero and highly hyper heroine,” added Ali.
