MUMBAI: Bollywood’s sizzling on-screen lovers Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor are all set to recreate their romance and chemistry from films like ‘Yaadein’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’, and ‘Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon’!
The two have been signed on for ‘Shuddhi’, which is touted to be an intense love story (a genre in which the two excel). Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions will produce the film, while Karan Malhotra of ‘Agneepath’ fame will direct the film.
In a marvelous casting coup of sorts, Johar has managed to work in the two super hit superstars. After a time lag of nearly 12 years, the Hrithik and Kareena will be seen sharing screen space, and lighting up the celluloid.
Karan Johar excitedly revealed: “I’m excited to see Hrithik and Kareena back after 12 years.”
The rumoured ex-lovers have not worked together since Barjatya’s ‘Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon’, which was their last release together.
Johar adds, “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. 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.”
