Post Kaabil’s release in India, both the critics and the audience couldn’t stop admiring Hrithik’s enactment in the movie. Thanks to his sharp features and impeccable dancing flair, he was already addressed as the Greek God. But this time both Hrithik and Yami bagged countless praises on their extraordinary acting skills in the movie. Hrithik has played numerous challenging roles in the past with movies like Jodhaa Akbar and India’s first superhero series- Koi Mil Gaya and Krish. But by playing an intimate role in Kaabil, the already multi-faceted actor will now be remembered forever for his powerful and fine portrayal of a specially abled character.
Rakesh Roshan says, “Hrithik has always had an alluring persona in Bollywood, known for his good looks and attractive personality. So, we wanted him to play something more challenging, which is out of his comfort zone and Kaabil was the right opportunity that we stumbled upon where he plays a visually impaired man. With the kind of script we had in our hand, I knew this role will only further amplify Hrithik’s skills as an actor”
Hrithik Roshan adds, “Kaabil is extremely close to my heart and it is overwhelming to see it reach even more people now, with the impending release in China. I gave every bit of myself to this specially-abled character. The process of getting into the shoes of the character while fighting a created tragic situation was a powerful and agonizing feeling at the same time.”
B4U’s Film Division Head, Sunil Shah articulates “Despite Kaabil releasing with other A-grade Bollywood movies, it topped the box office in terms of both revenue and reviews. I feel privileged to be associated with one of the most talented actors of the Indian film industry – Hrithik Roshan and the visionary producer of this era, Mr. Rakesh Roshan. I believe on the basis of a gripping story line, revered actors and a ‘Global Hit’ status, Kaabil can open up new avenues for Indian Cinema in China.”
The film Kaabil is produced by FilmKraft, imported by China Film Group corporation and is distributed and translated by China film group. It is distributed internationally by B4U Motion Pictures Release, and is promoted by Tianjin Qitai Culture Communication Co. LTD.
