Hrithik Roshan to play lead in Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’

Shuddhi will have three main characters. The heroine and the villain are yet to be decided.

After Agneepath Hrithik Roshan, producer Karan Johar and director Karan Malhotra has teamed up for a new project titled Shuddhi. ‘Shuddhi’, is based on an original story and will hit theatres on Diwali next year.

About Shuddhi Karan Johar says “It’s a large-scale love story, a genre I love. With Hrithik’s intensity, he will be seen in a completely different role than in Agneepath.”  Also recalling the making of Agneepath, he says, “I had a wonderful experience. Karan Malhotra has a fantastic vision, a combination of aesthetic and commercial sense. Hrithik is a close friend and an outstanding actor. So, it’s great that the three of us are teaming up again.”

“I’m really excited to work with the two Karans again. Agneepath is an extremely special film for me and I can’t wait to recreate a new world again.” said Hrithik Roshan.

Shuddhi will have three main characters. The heroine and the villain are yet to be decided. Katrina Kaif will not be the leading lady in the film. It is reported that Kat, who did the ‘Chikni Chameli’ in Agneepath, never got along with the director of the film.

The screenplay is written by Karan Malhotra’s wife Ekta. The movie will be shot in Mumbai and Uttrakhand and is scheduled to go on floor by end of 2013. Dharma Production‘s Agneepath was a massive success last year, so it comes as no surprise that the team plans to reunite for yet another venture.
