Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaabil to have a grand release in China

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

While Hrithik Roshan fans are going crazy on the social media, wishing him on his 44th birthday, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan decided to reward his fans with a special gift by announcing the release date of Krrish 4.  The fourth installment of the most celebrated superhero franchise starring Hrithik Roshan has been locked for Christmas 2020. Rakesh Roshan took to Twitter to make the announcement, “Today is perhaps the best day to make the release day of Krrish 4 official. Crhistmas 2020 it is. A gift for all of you on Hrithik’s birthday. Happy birthday Hrithik,” his tweet read.

Rakesh Roshan’s last film Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam, had taken the box-office by storm last year on the eve of Republic Day, despite the formidable clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees. The maker in an earlier interview had revealed that he had “a gem of an idea” for the fourth installment of Krrish and he wanted to leave no stone unturned for it. He had also said that he planned the graph of a film only after locking the script and how he wanted to unfold the story on screen.

The father-son duo of Rakesh and Hrithik Roshan, have had an indomitable record at the box-office from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai to Kaabil. The last installment of Krrish was released on 4th November, 2013 in over 4000 screens worldwide. The film made history at the box-office with a domestic business of Rs 244 crores in India and a worldwide collection in the range of Rs 290 crores.  Hrithik presently has two other films Super 30 and YRF’s next but Christmas 2020 would definitely be one to watch out for.



“I love the energy and vibe while performing live, says Urvashi Rautela after enthralling Kolkata audiences on New Year’s Eve

The actress talks about her life-long passion for dance and why live concerts inspire her

She has been to Kolkata on several occasions earlier but actress Urvashi Rautela describes her Hasta La Vista event on New Year’s Eve as one of her most exciting performances in recent times. Reports suggest that the huge crowds who had gathered at Ekante Island, Eco Park to witness the high voltage spectacle, went berserk as the actress gyrated to some of the most popular numbers in recent times, including her own Haseenon Ka Deewana number in Kaabil.

Urvashi recalled her experience and the great connect she shared with the audiences, “I have performed to some of the most vibrant crowds in the past but this was something different. There was a different energy and vibe and the feeling was amazing. I wanted the Kolkata audiences to usher the New Year in a unique way and they were thrilled,” she said. She also remembered her recent live-wire act in UAE at the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium, when she performed for her Dubai fans, “That was another novel experience. I wanted to do something different and I performed an Arabic dance form especially for my Dubai audiences. It was an exhilarating experience,” she revealed.

The actress said that performing live in front of thousands of fans gave her a new high, “I am extremely passionate about dancing but when I take to the dance floor at a concert, there is so much more excitement since the audiences are right there in front of you giving you a direct feedback,” she said, adding that she loved to choreograph her own act with creative dance moves.

Talking about her life-long connect to dance, Urvashi recalled an incident in her childhood days when she choreographed a number for a school function, “I was just 12 years old then. I used to choreograph dance numbers for school events and conduct dance classes for free for the kids living in my area. One of the numbers I taught to a student was the ‘Dil Mein Mere Dard E Disco’, which shaped up so well that the six year old won the first prize in the school competition. It prodded me to pursue dance further. I am very creative about my dance moves and it comes to me very instinctively. I think it’s gifted,” she said.

“I remember I had choreographed the Shah Rukh Khan number, ‘Dil Mein Mere Dard E Disco’ at the age of 12 for a school concert for which my six year old dance student won the first prize” – Urvashi Rautela

Interestingly, Urvashi is said to have choreographed two of the dance numbers in her forthcoming film, Hate Story 4, “I have added my own creative inputs to the two very catchy numbers but I have done it unofficially but it gave a whole new dimension to the way the numbers finally shaped up,” she said.
