The team behind Agent Vinod say they have to recover only Rs 30 crore for the film to break even.

Directed by Sriram Raghavan, the action spy film sees Khan playing the role of a RAW agent. The film was released on March 23 to mixed reviews.

Producer Dinesh Vijan told PTI: "The film has been made for Rs 50 crores and 12 crores went for marketing, totalling 62 crores. Out of which we have already recovered 50 per cent as music and satellite rights have been sold for around 30 crores.

"The task ahead is to make around Rs 30 crores, which is a very achievable figure."

He continued: "Agent Vinod has been the biggest from our production house. Love Aaj Kal was our first film and we shot it in three continents. On the other hand, this has been filmed in 12 countries and each schedule came with its own set of problems.

"The possibility of things going wrong in a love story compared to an action story is 1:10. We are proud of the final product that Sriram has delivered."

Discussing who holds responsibility for the film's success, he added: "The opening of the film is very critical and they are usually backed by huge promotions. The first three days it is a producer's film. From Monday onwards, the film becomes a director's film."

Saif Ali Khan has said he does not feel the film will lose money as a result of Pakistan banning it.

Khan has also commented that he would consider making the film a franchise.
