Rakesh hopeless in Hollywood
Rakesh Roshan is in a fix - his plans to take Kites to an international platform just donít seem to
International buyers at Cannes practically cold-shouldered his film and now he is going to try his luck with Hollywood himself. He has taken it upon himself to get the best deals possible and has marked 20 days out of his schedule solely for this purpose.
Starring Hrithik Roshan, Kangana Ranaut and Mexican actress Barbara Mori, Kites, is being taken to all the major Hollywood studios next month.
Our source said, ďRakesh Roshan wants Kites to be an international hit which will also launch his son Hrithik overseas. Thatís why the film has been made in English as well. Roshan feels that the film is apt for an international market and Hrithik will also be launched abroad in a big way. Hoping to garner a major tie-up, Rakesh Roshan is going to market the film himself over 20 days and try to convince major Hollywood studios."
Another source said, ďBasically, Cannes Film Festival does not have a big market for Indian films. Italian, Korean and French films have a major market there. So, Kites also did not have big buyers. They had hoped to recover a large amount of money from Cannes, but that did not work out. The film has been sold at a huge price to Reliance and now they need to recover their money from these studios. Reliance and Rakesh Roshan had meetings with quite a few people from major studios at the festival and talks are still going on.Ē
Reliance refused to talk about the issue and Rakesh Roshan remained unavailable for comment.
