Hrithik Roshan’s Kites directed by Anurag Basu till recently was the most anticipated movie of the year, but now that the movie has been postponed to next year, we await a final release date.
According to sources close to Filmkraft, Kites has been confirmed to release in January. There are two release dates being discussed..
- 15th January 2010 – Marks the completion of 10 years for Hrithik in the industry (as a lead star). Kaho Na Pyaar Hai released on January 14th 2000 and Roshan turned into a superstar overnight. It would also be Hrithik’s birthday week (January 10th), a good time for the Roshan’s to release their biggest project yet, wouldn’t it?
- 22nd January 2010 – The republic day week is also being discussed, but it would also mean a clash with Amitabh Bachchan’s Rann directed by Ram Gopal Varma. Not too big a competition for a film like Kites, but Salman Khan’s Veer is also eying the same release date. Three big films – Kites, Veer, Rann same week wouldn’t be too great for the industry, would it?
We think 15th January is just about the perfect release date for the film and with no competition at the box-office it should open to huge number.
