Dad chops Hrithik-Barbara's hot scenes

MUMBAI: We might belong to the land of the Kama Sutra but Rakesh Roshan wants to take no chances with his home production Kites.

After approaching Raju Hirani and finally getting Brett Ratner to edit the film, Roshan has decided to considerably do away with the intimate scenes between Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori in the Hindi version on the instance of Ratner who is editing the film’s English version.

A source from the production unit reveals, “The film has an English as well as a Hindi version. As the intimate scenes between Hrithik and Barbara are way too bold for the Indian audience, Brett asked Rakesh Roshan to either completely delete or at least water down the passionate scenes in the Hindi version.”

“Brett Ratner was especially called to re-edit Kites. He was got in to cater to the international audience. Being an expert, Ratner gave his suggestion as he understands the mindset of the Indian audience very well. Also, the intimate scenes between Hrithik and Barbara should not become the talk of the town especially after rumours of their alleged affair. Rakesh Roshan is now making the necessary changes” adds the source. Says Rakesh Roshan, “My films are made for a family audience. There are no intimate or lovemaking scenes in Kites.”
