'Kites' team starts new trend, premieres music on radio

Mar 24, 2010 IANS

Mumbai, March 24 (IANS) The music of Hrithik Roshan's eagerly awaited film "Kites" has been launched and this is the first time a movie album has premiered on a radio channel.

"I think, this is for the first time there is a music premiere happening on a radio channel, which is great. I am hoping for some good feedback," Hrithik told reporters at the Radio Mirch studio here Thursday.

There has been a lot of buzz about the film and finally the promotion has started.

Asked how different the promotions will be from other movies, Hrithik said: "I am not the marketing guy, so I am clueless. I am just an actor and am happy doing acting. I don't think on those terms.

"They (marketing team) must be doing something to promote the film. They will tell me what to do and I will do whatever I can do."

Directed by Anurag Basu, "Kites" will be released in both Hindi and English. The film is about two lovers and their thrilling journey filled with precious moments and unexpected betrayal.

Mexican actress Barbara Mori, who plays Hrithik's love interest in the movie, is expected to come down for the promotion activities of the movie set for a May 21 release.

"Yes, I think she will be coming down on the 20th of next month and help in promoting the film," said Hrithik.

Kangana Ranaut also features in the movie, but she has not been highlighted so far.

"I really am not the person who decides on promotion and marketing. The film is a love story between Barbara and me. The idea to project the first promos of the film comes from the director's vision, what he wants to tell the audiences and that's how the promos are made," said Hrithik.

Asked whether he has flown kites, Hrithik said: "Yes, I remember papa used to teach me. We used to live on the 13th floor of a building... I was too small and I used to wonder that the kites seems so light but when it's flying, it's really hard to hold the 'manja' (string). I remember that really clearly because I could not hold it and it used to keep flying away from my hand."
