There have been speculations about the star cast of Shuddhi for a long time now. Finally Hrithik and Kareena have been finalized for the role.
The film will be directed by Karan Malhotra, director of Agneepath, and produced by Karan Johar.
Says KJo, “I’m excited to see Hrithik and Kareena back after 12 years.”
“When Karan (Malhotra) came to me with Shuddhi, his desire was to cast Hrithik and Kareena. I spoke to both of them and they were happy to be on board. The film is an intense love story and because it has a reincarnation theme, he has written a script that is dramatic and outstanding,” said Johar.
“Also, such a theme requires actors who can bring the desired intensity. To me, it is really an important casting. But I don’t look at it as a coup. Kareena is beautiful, talented and a powerhouse performer. And Hrithik, well, what can I say? He can melt a nation just with his eyes,” added the director.
