The purchase of rights deal (of reportedly Rs.150 crore) between Rakesh Roshan and BIG Pictures for Roshan produced Kites has been touted as the biggest film deal Bollywood has ever witnessed. Now aiming to make a bigger impact in the global market, BIG Pictures is gearing up to market the Hrithik Roshan-Barbara Mori starrer to the international market at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
Our sources from BIG Pictures reveal, “We are planning to host a press conference and will also be showcasing a teaser on two digital screens adjacent to the red carpet entrance of the Palais. But it is not just Kites that we are aiming to market. We are also planning to market our big art house film slate."
