Kites was in the news a couple of days ago following a man named Laxmi Prasad, of Sunbeam Holding, alleging that Rakesh owed him Rs.10 crore for the copyright of the action scenes. However, the makers of the film FilmKraft and Adlabs challenged the release stay order passed by a Bihar Munsif Court before the Sitamarhi District Court. Now, the interim stay has been lifted. The Bihar Munsif Court will hear the suit on May 24.
Producer Rakesh Roshan had earlier said that they wouldn't change the release date of the film. Hrithik and Barbara are currently busy promoting the film. It was earlier rumoured that they were seeing each other.
