Kareena Kapoor or Deepika Padukone: Who is better suited to star alongside Hrithik Roshan in Karan Johar’s Shuddhi?
Looking at which actor will look perfect alongside Hrithik Roshan in the upcoming romantic film Shuddhi
The process of casting the leading lady for one of the year’s most anticipated films is underway, and let us tell you, it doesn’t look easy at all!
The movie in question is Karan Johar’s Shuddhi - an original story written by Agneepath director Karan Malhotra and his wife Ekta Malhotra. And, while Hrithik Roshan has been finalised as the lead actor, the spot for the leading lady is up for grabs.
In the race to fill that position are Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor - both supremely beautiful and just as talented. Yet Kareena might depend on her ‘special equation’ with BFF and producer Karan to cast her for the role. Although she has superior acting skills among the two, which she has displayed, although erratically, in films like Chameli, Asoka, Yuva and Omkara, we have seen her paired alongside Hrithik before. The two looked fab in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, yet after watching them cast together in debacles like Main Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon, Yaadein, and Mujhse Dosti Karoge, the audience interest waned considerably!
Wethinks Deepika may be good for the role in Shuddhi since she matches Hrithik in height. Plus, we have never seen Duggu and her act together in a film. Also, the Krrish 3 looks great when he is paired with slim ‘n’ pretty ladies – for instance, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Dhoom:2.
There is also a strong rumour that Shuddhi will feature Hrithik as Lord Shiva, and the female lead will be playing the role of Sati. If that’s the case, then Dips is clearly the one to star in the movie, considering her looks are more suited to Indian sensibilities. However, director Malhotra recently tweeted that the movie is not an adaptation of the bestselling book The Immortals of Meluha, but that it is a love story to be shot in Mumbai and Uttarakhand.
Well, we’re done giving out opinion now. Now let us know who you feel will look better among Deepika and Kareena alongside Hrithik!
