After Humshakals debacle, Sajid Khan to remake Korean romantic comedy, My Girlfriend is an Agent re-written by Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani writer, Hussain Dalal.
"It is an official remake. The original film is called My Girlfriend is an Agent. It took us around nine to ten months to turn it around to My Boyfriend is an Agent," Sajid said in an interview.
The 2009 Korean film chronicles the story of two spies, former lovers who are now sworn enemies, on a mission to stop a Russian crime group from stealing a chemical weapon.
The Heyy Babyy helmer said getting good writers on board for the film was difficult as most of them are really busy.
"The biggest difficulty in film industry today is not that of getting dates, actors or finance, but writers. We don't get writers. They are like heart surgeons with whom you need to meet after fixing an appointment. You've to stratergise your life according to writers," he said.
When asked how many writers have penned the Indian adaptation, Sajid said, "I've got three writers, one is Hussain Dalal who wrote Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and 2 States."
However, Sajid did not divulge any further details regarding the movie.
After having delivered blockbusters like Heyy Babyy and the successful Houseful franchise, Sajid's last two films, Himmatwala and Humshakals did not do well.
