For his next film Kites, hunkstar Hrithik Roshan is starring opposite the Spanish beauty Barbara Mori and he has nothing but great things to say about the actress. “She’s one of the best actresses I’ve ever shared the camera with. She’s unbelievable!”
Hrithik went on to praise Barbara to Subhash K Jha saying that he learned a lot while working with her, “Her acting style has opened my eyes as an actor. It has been a very liberating experience. Her basic approach to acting is so different from what we are taught here. Everything is about being real. We in this country act out every scene. She doesn’t.” In fact Barbara got so into one of her emotional scenes that she actually cried the whole day, “ I couldn’t believe it. Yeah I’ve learnt a lot from Barbara and all the other actors I worked with in Kites,” Hrithik added.
In the film, Hrithik plays a Salsa teacher named Jay living in Las Vegas, he and Barbara aka Natasha meet, of course there is an attraction but she speaks no Hindi and he speaks no Spanish. However, the cultural barriers are no obstacle and a romance begins. Add in some action plus the fact that there is also another girl Gina, played by Kangana Ranaut who also loves Jay and we have quite an intriguing story. What happens in the film we will all have to wait and watch to find out.
The film is a first because it will not only be in Hindi, but also Spanish and English, in fact according to Hrithik 75% of the film is in English. It will be made in two versions, one for Indian audiences and one for the international market. Producer Rakesh Roshan told TNN, “English is the most common language all over the world. The Indian version has more Hindi dialogues, while the overseas has more English. However, essentially it is a Hindi language film.”
