Exclusive: Saifeena to be Brangelina?

Abhishek and Aishwarya may hold the majority of votes when it comes to the hottest married couple in Bollywood, but it is Saif and Kareena who occupy the minds of all when it comes to the hottest unmarried couple.

Saif and Kareena have been dating for two years, and now that times are changing, they are more and more vocal about their relationship.

Saif and Kareena, or Saifeena as some call them can be compared to Hollywood's hottest couple Brad and Angelina not just because 'Saifeena' rhymes with 'Brangelina' or because they are the 'it' couples of filmdom, but for another, more literal reason

While Brad and Angelina aren't working in any films together in the near future, the world is looking forward to Saif and Kareena's next film together, which, as the stars revealed themselves, is Agent Vinod.

Given the custom of remaking and rehashing in Bollywood, Agent Vinod can hardly be expected to have an original story.

In fact, the story is said to be a remake of a Hollywood film that starred the super-sexy Brad and Angelina. One hint: it is a story of two spies

Quite expectedly, Agent Vinod is 'inspired' by the super hit Hollywood flick, Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

The film saw the beginning of the Brad-Angelina romance, which soon became an international obsession five years ago and continues to cast its shadow all over the world.

Just as the Brad-Angelina real life story worked wonders for Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the Saif-Kareena romance is expected to draw audiences by the dozen for Agent Vinod.

Apart from Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Agent Vinod also seems to be a remake of an old and somewhat forgotten Hindi film of the very same name.

Saif and Kareena, who earlier worked together in Tashan, will be seen playing spies in Agent Vinod.

Reportedly, the story is of two spies who don't get along, but have to work together, and naturally, hate turns into love and the rest is left to our imagination.

After working with Deepika in Love Aaj Kal, Saif is admittedly excited about coming back to working with girlfriend Bebo so "(they) can be like a family again."

The story of Agent Vinod sounds a lot like Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Two agents start out as rivals, and are sent to kill one another, but given their history together, they can't bring themselves to shoot their 'partner'.

Let's just hope that Saif and Kareena can bring their own special magic to the film.

Apart from the similarities in the story-line, there is still another connection between the hottest couples in Bollywood and Hollywood.

Kareena Kapoor, the leading lady of Agent Vinod has often expressed a desire to be like Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie.

Agent Vinod is one step towards Kareena's dream coming true.

So far Kareena is just one among the various leading Bollywood ladies who are considered the sexiest, but this film may be her way of matching up to the beautiful Angelina Jolie.

How soon will she manage?
