HRITHIK ROSHAN and KANGANA RANAUT

Big Entertainment has been making big news for paying the highest ever price for the acquisition of the Hrithik Roshan, Barbara Mori and Kangana Ranaut starrer, KITES, at an unbelievable price of 150 cores! Though the exact figure of the deal is not known as both the parties are not keen on divulging it, reliable sources say that the deal has been signed for 100 crore and not 150 crore, as is being written in certain quarters.

In fact 100 crore itself is an astronomical sum, the highest ever for a Bollywood film. The last film that was sold at an unheard of price was the Murugadoss directed Aamir Khan starrer GHAJINI, but it was still quite lower as compared to the reported sum for KITES. The film, despite its steep cost went on to do historic business and the same is expected of KITES, as it stars Hrithik Roshan, who has proved to be a bankable star in terms of box-office success and whose super-stardom in India is unquestionable.

Moreover, KITES also has international star Barbara Mori, whose presence in the film should help it get a massive initial Overseas. Hrithik himself is a very big star there and comes second only to Bollywood's global superstar Shah Rukh Khan in terms of popularity abroad. Thirdly, it is being produced by Filmkraft, and Rakesh Roshan's extraordinary track record with Hrithik Roshan must have been one of the factors playing on Big Pictures' mind while signing the deal. And last but not the least, its being directed by Anurag Basu, a creditable director who has given two back to back hits in form of GANGSTER and LIFE IN A... METRO (not to forget MURDER!). And naturally expectations of a hat-trick by Anurag may not be a far fetched thought. And therefore, the 100 crore acquisition by Big Pictures should not come as a big surprise.

Well, with debacles like LOVE STORY 2050 and KARZZZZ last year, and a not so good start to this year in form of Zoya Akhter's LUCK BY CHANCE, we can only hope that Big Pictures will fly high with KITES and taste big success!
