Mumbai, 26th March, 2010: Reliance Big Pictures and Rakesh Roshan’s highly anticipated film Kites unfolds yet another surprise! Kites marks the debut of actor Hrithik Roshan as a singer on the silver screen. To commemorate this Reliance BIG Pictures is launching the music of Kites on national television as a roadblock by airing Hrithik debut song ‘Kites in the Sky”, in English along with some behind the scenes footage on 29th March at 9.30 p.m. across 40 television channels.

Commenting on this, Sanjeev Lamba, CEO, Reliance BIG Pictures, says, “We are delighted to bring to fans across the globe the wonderful music of Kites and Hrithik's debut as a singer. This roadblock across all major channels is our way to commemorate this unprecedented occasion".

Hrithik Roshan says, “I was nervous to make my debut as a singer considering I come from a family that is well known in the world of music, but for this very reason my chacha (Rajesh Roshan) and Anurag were most certain that I could sing. I have given this song my best and honest shot, but I still don’t consider myself a professional singer.

Director Anurag Basu says, “I first noticed Hrithik’s singing talent when we were casually jamming one evening after dinner. After that when I told him to sing for Kites, he wasn’t too sure initially but he agreed to give it a try. He is a natural singer and has the talent in his genes; I only did my job by tapping it. Hrithik has a good career ahead as a singer and I feel fortunate that we have a song sung by Hrithik in Kites.

On 29th March at 9.30 p.m. this will also be simultaneously streamed on the official website of Kites- www.kites-thefilm.com, facebook.com (http://www.facebook.com/officialkites) and youtube.com (http://www.youtube.com/user/Officialkitesmovie).

Kites has music by Rajesh Roshan and lyrics by Nasir Faraaz. The music (released on T series) will be available in stores from March 29th onwards. The music of Kites is also available on SD & USB cards and for download in a digital format (as a single song or entire album) through T Series, Hungama, iTunes and other popular websites.
