Deepika Padukone to step in Kareena Kapoor Khan’s shoes – Hrithik Roshan’s Shuddhi heroine replaced?

As per the latest buzz, Ms Padukone has been approached by KJo. Is trouble brewing between good friends Bebo and Karan or has the filmmaker shifted his loyalty? Read on to know…

Karan Johar managed to pull of casting coup of sorts when he got Kareena Kapoor Khan and Hrithik Roshan on board for Karan Malhotra’s forthcoming film Shuddhi. The two actors last shared screen space in Karan Johar’s family drama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham which was way back in 2001. Obviously everybody was looking forward to see this Jodi on the big screen again. However, it may take a little longer since we have learnt that Karan has been in talks with Deepika Padukone for the same film. Since Bebo’s last film Gori Tere Pyaar Mein failed at the box office, the makers of Shuddhi are now considering to cast a more bankable heroine. So who better than DP, hai na? The babe has delivered four back-to-back blockbusters this year itself and any filmmaker would be lucky to have her as leading lady, no peeps?

“It’s true, she (Deepika) has been approached. However, she still needs to read the script and take a decision” said a source. Well, we wouldn’t mind if Dippy accepts the offer coz we are sure she will do justice to her part. But we wonder what will happen to Kareena and Karan’s dosti? Will it go kaput…we’ll have to wait and watch.
