Kites (2010) - Hrithik Barbara Gyrations Release Date May 21, 2010

Bárbara Mori

For an Indian Hindi movie that has the tagline "in love there are no boundaries", Kites is indeed honest. Hrithik Roshan, one of the reigning Bollywood film heroes, not only crosses the boundaries of around 40 countries, but also a couple of oceans to boot. He finally finds love in the arms of the sensuous latina actress Barbara Mori, and somehow crosses over the other kind of boundary, that of spoken language, as well. I am not sure if Hrithik says "main tumse pyaar karta hoon" and Barbara Mori says "te quiero!" in Kites - but we will know when it releases. The release date of KITES is May 21, 2010.
