Come November 19, Hrithik Roshan will face competition from the most unexpected quarter - his Kites co-star Barbara Mori.
By design or by default, Jayantilal Gada who heads PEN Entertainment, is set to release the dubbed Hindi version of Barbara’s racy Spanish film My Brother’s Wife on the same day as Sanjay Leela Bhansali is releasing Guzaarish, starring Hrithik Roshan as a magician-turned-paraplegic.
Jayantilal has a history of animosity with the Roshans and he had earlier planned the release of this dubbed movie of Barbara ahead of the release of Kites in May to eat into the market share of Kites. However, as fate had it, the dubbing wasn’t done in time and, coincidentally, Kites also came crashing down at box office.
But now, Jayantilal is apparently gunning for Guzaarish and has planned to release Barbara’s dubbed movie, now titled ‘Spanish Beauty’, on November 19. To top it, the film is being pitched as a skin flick with lots of bold scenes of Barbara. Racy posters will go another step to grab the eyeballs.
Hrithik better watch out for competition from Barbara.
