Reliance BIG Pictures has set the temperature soaring by making KITES, the most awaited film of the Summer, a staggering Box Office success, both domestically and in international territories. KITES, starring one of India’s most idolized artists Hrithik Roshan and South American screen star Barbara Mori, marked the widest ever release of an Indian film to date with 2,000 screens in India and more than 500 screens overseas.
In international markets KITES has reached the Number 5 spot at the UK Box Office with the second highest per screen average in the top ten.
The film has also become the first ever Indian film to break into the US Box Office Top 10, flying in at the Number 10 position during the opening weekend.
The film grossed over 21 Crore Rupees on the opening day in India, the second highest opening ever, trailing only Reliance BIG Pictures’ December 2009 release, 3 IDIOTS.
KITES has also been more widely reviewed by international critics than any other Indian film with director Anurag Basu being hailed by US film critics.
