Two real -life pairs are planning to do their own ‘Bourne Identity’. It’s not only Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, who are getting ready for their sojourn as the spies who came in from cold in Sriram Raghavan’s Agent Vinod, another real-life couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are doing a super-slick espionage film called Crooked.
Says producer Ritesh Sidhwani, “Our slick espionage thriller will be in the same genre as The Bourne Identity. It will be shot in Greece, Istanbul, Thailand and India.” Gul Panag and Jimmy Sheirgill, two talented fringe players waiting for the big time in Bollywood, along with Boman Irani, who has sjust wrapped up Shyam Benegal’s Abba Ka Kuan, will be playing key roles in Crooked.
“The English-language title will most probably change,” warns producer Ritesh who’s working with the entire cast, barring Boman, for the first time. Crooked’s director Abhinay Deo is currently in the process of wrapping up Aamir Khan productions’ Delhi Belly with Imran Khan and Shenaz Treasurywala in the cast.
