Mumbai, June 22 (IANS) The much-talked about Hrithik Roshan starrer “Kites” is scheduled for December release and producer Rakesh Roshan and director Anurag Basu have also agreed on how different the English and Hindi versions of the film would be.
The supposed steamy scenes between Hrithik and his co-star Barbara Mori would be the same in both versions.
“We can’t cheat Hindi audiences. The so-called steamy scenes will be the same in both versions. The visuals will remain unchanged in both. There won’t be anything radically different in the two versions because Hrithik and Barbara speak English-Hindi and Spanish, respectively in both English and Hindi,” Basu told IANS.
Also there would be voice-overs in Hindi and English, both done by Hrithik whose love story the film chronicles in a style that would recall David Lean’s “Brief Encounter” and K. Balachander’s “Ek Duuje Ke Liye”.
About being designated the director of the decade at International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in Macau, Rakesh Roshan said: “I’m flattered. There were other truly deserving directors in the reckoning. I must’ve done something right.”
