Two and a half years after it won the hearts of Indian audiences in January 2017, the Hrithik Roshan-Yami Gautam starrer Kaabil is now set to have a grand release in China on June 5, 2019. It will also mark Hrithik’s debut in the China market. The intense revenge saga directed by Rakesh Roshan, replete with romance and emotions, will be reportedly released with a record number of 15,000 screens,
Post Kaabil’s release in India, both the critics and the audience couldn’t stop admiring Hrithik’s performance in the movie. With power-packed characterizations, realistic setting and great music, the story of a differently-abled couple stormed the Indian cinema and received unprecedented success world-wide. Both Hrithik and Yami bagged countless praises for their extraordinary acting skills in the movie. Hrithik has played several challenging roles in the past with movies like Jodhaa Akbar, besides India’s first superhero series- Koi Mil Gaya and Krissh. But the multi-faceted actor made an ever-lasting impression with his portrayal of a differently abled character in the movie.
Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan is eagerly looking forward to the China response for the film, “Kaabil is extremely close to my heart and it is overwhelming to see it reach to even more people now, with the impending release in China. I gave every bit of myself to this specially-abled character. The process of getting into the shoes of the character while fighting a tragic situation was a powerful and agonizing feeling at the same time,” the actor said.

According to producer Rakesh Roshan, Kaabil was the right opportunity for Hrithik to play something out of his comfort zone, “Hrithik has always had an alluring persona in Bollywood, known for his good looks and attractive personality. We wanted him to play something more challenging and we stumbled upon Kaabil in which Hrithik played a visually impaired man. With the kind of script we had in our hand, I knew this role would further amplify Hrithik’s skills as an actor”
B4U’s Film Division Head, Sunil Shah is confident that Kaabil will break new ground at the China box-office, “I believe on the basis of a gripping story line, revered actors and a ‘Global Hit’ status, Kaabil can open up new avenues for Indian Cinema in China. Moreover, I feel privileged to be associated with one of the most talented actors of the Indian film industry – Hrithik Roshan and the visionary producer of this era, Mr. Rakesh Roshan.
Kaabil is produced by FilmKraft, imported by China Film Group Corporation and is distributed and translated by China film group. It is distributed internationally by B4U Motion Pictures Release, and is promoted by Tianjin Qitai Culture Communication Co. LTD
