IMTIAZ ALI
 
Bringing in many firsts, UTV Motion Pictures today announced an association with acclaimed director Imtiaz Ali who comes on board as the creative producer for the official Hindi remake of the 2009 South Korean romantic action comedy MY GIRLFRIEND IS AN AGENT (MGIAA). The project also marks mark Imtiaz's wife, Preety Ali's foray into film production with the recently set up production house, PI Films. Acclaimed choreographer Bosco of the famous Bosco-Caesar duo debuts as the director for the film.

UTV Motion Pictures has acquired the remake rights of the 2009 South Korean romantic action comedy MY GIRLFRIEND IS AN AGENT, a film that set new box office records in South Korea, opening at number one at the box office and staying in the top ten for nine consecutive weeks. 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.

Commenting on the development, Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures says, "It's 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 it's 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."

Imtiaz adds, "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. 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. And I'm there to add to the chaos and trouble PI Films and UTV at every step of the making!"
