Hrithik Roshan, who will be seen sporting a new look in his
forthcoming release "Kites", has never hesitated from
experimenting in his 10 years in the industry. He says leaving
the safety zone and trying something different is the need of
" 'Kites' is a very honest film. That was the brief that
my father and Anurag Basu gave to the entire team while making
'Kites'. We do not want to be within the safety zone influenced
by manipulative commercial thinking," Hrithik, looking
his best in a red and white check shirt and blue jeans, told
IANS in an interview.
"Nothing in the film - no dialogues or no moments that
try to provoke claps, tears or laughter. It's a very simple
straightforward love story, something that would happen in real
life and following that thread whatever fell into place has
made the film what it is," said the actor.
The 36-year-old, who has done a range of movies - from sci-fi
to superhero, from historical to romantic sagas - feels filmmakers
should try to come out of their comfort zones and make films
from their heart.
"It's time to let go of all our safety nets and be out
there and tell a story through our hearts and not bother who
is listening. We should make films with a thought as if no one
is there to judge us. Like this we will produce better and more
honest films," he said.
"Kites", a film about an Indian man's affair with
a Latin woman and their predicament as they don't understand
each other's language, is being made in Hindi and English. The
English version of "Kites" has been presented and
reworked by well-known Hollywood director Brett Ratner.
Produced by Hrithik's father and filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, the
film will be distributed and marketed by Reliance BIG Pictures.
