    By Subhash K. Jha, May 20, 2009 - 10:30 IST Director Anurag Basu, producer Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan have returned to Mumbai from CannesKites has been received at the international jamboree.

    But the one voice of dissent in the glamorous event that we cannot hear, thanks to the din of clinking champagne glasses, is Kangna Ranaut's.
