A teaser trailer and some key art posters of the film were unveiled at a press event, which was followed by a cocktail reception, hosted by Reliance’s BIG Pictures, for the film’s cast, crew, international buyers and distributors.

She was obviously relying on her décolletage and the metallic luster of her gown for effect.
She accessorized with a pair of shockingly ugly pair of jute belle flats, oval drop earrings and barely noticeable two bracelets in her left arm.
Her well styled hair somewhat made up for her crumpled dress – side parted bob with out turned ends adorned with a red rose above her right ear.
Hrithik looked a charmer in white suit, grey suede shoes and pale green floral print scarf loosely wrapped around his neck. His long hair was styled in curls and his French beard rocked.
Kites is being marketed extensively across international platforms. BIG Pictures is leaving no stone unturned in promoting the film at the Cannes Film Festival. The cast and crew of the film will be present during all activities related to KITES at the festival.

“This is our attempt to tap the mainstream international audience and we are hopeful that with an able partner like BIG Pictures, we will be able to meet this objective,” says producer Rakesh Roshan.
“Kites is a story of love that goes beyond barriers, boundaries and cultures. With an internationally renowned crew and crisp story telling we have attempted to create a film which we feel has a scope to reach wider world audience and set new benchmarks,” adds Hrithik, Rakesh’s son.
