After introducing Brazilian Giselli Monteiro in his last home production Love Aaj Kal, now Saif Ali Khan will be launching bold n' haute South African model Ann Lee Roberts in Agent Vinod.
Ann Lee will be essaying the role that was initially offered to Priyanka Chopra, which she had turned down. "I never spoke to Priyanka about the role my partner has. Though we would have loved to have her, I understand it was not a big role. The role also meant sharing screen space with Kareena and many actresses don't want that," Saif told HT.
Kareena and Saif will be back together after Kurbaan. Kareena has even shot her first mujra for beau Saif's home production. "I want to kill Saif. I wrapped up the song in 21 hours flat and now I'm sighing over my bruised hands and feet. There was no time for rehearsals because I had to leave and Saif was like, 'Hurry, finish the song or we will not get Bebo again.' I was anxious and exhausted, but the song has turned out really well. Saif was on the sets while it was being shot and he is really happy. Seeing the producer happy makes me happy," Kareena told HT.
