‘Kites' to hit screens during December

Mumbai (IANS): The much-talked about Hrithik Roshan starrer "Kites" is scheduled for December release also producer Rakesh Roshan also 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 into both versions.

"We can't cheat Hindi audiences. The so-called steamy scenes will be the same during 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 during 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 into 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 during Macau, Rakesh Roshan said: "I'm flattered. There were other truly deserving directors into the reckoning. I must've done something right."
