Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar, who recently attended the New York premiere of Hrithik Roshan's Kites, described the film as being "outstanding".
"'Kites is outstanding and Hrithik is beyond brilliant. Barbara (Mori) lights up the screens and connects on all levels... it's a winner," the director posted on his Twitter account.
Directed by Anurag Basu, Kites is a love story that crosses borders and linguistic barriers. It's a tale of romance between an Indian man and a Mexican beauty.
It also stars actress Kangana Ranaut. Produced by Hrithik's father Rakesh Roshan and distributed by Reliance Big Pictures, Kites will release worldwide in Hindi on May 21 and in English on May 28.
