Karan Malhotra, who made his Bollywood debut as a director in 2012’s Agneepath, is now all gearing up for his second film Shuddhi. Though Hrithik Roshan will be seen as the lead face, Malhotra says the leading lady for the film is not yet finalized. However, there were reports that Kareena Kapoor has been roped in for the project opposite Hrithik.
“The leading lady of the film is not yet finalised. So far it is only Hrithik Roshan who has been finalised. I can’t talk much about whether Kareena is in the film as long as Karan (Johar) doesn’t make an official announcement,” said Karan Malhotra.
Nevertheless, Karan says he has his “wish list ready”. “My fingers are crossed and I hope the best actress, who fits the bill, becomes a part of the film,” he added.
Shuddhi film will be shot in Mumbai and Uttarakhand. The film will go on floors in November by the end of this year and will be widely shot in Mumbai and Uttarakhand. It is slated for release in 2014.
