Who will replace Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in Shuddhi: Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone or Ranveer Singh-Alia Bhatt?

With Duggu and Bebo backing off from Shuddhi, the makers of the film are now looking for their replacement. Though the shoes are pretty big to fill, we list down contenders who fit the bill perfectly

It is sad that things didn’t work out for Yaadein co-stars Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. The duo was all set to make a comeback on the big screen after a decade or so with Karan Johar’s Shuddhi. Guess will have to wait a little longer to see this sizzling jodi on 70mm. But now the hot topic of discussion in tinsel town is – who will replace Hrithik-Kareena in Shuddhi? Rumours are rife that KJo is planning to cast his Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani pair in his ambitious project. At the same time, reports are also doing the rounds that Ranveer Singh will replace the honey-eyed actor in Shuddhi to be directed by Karan Malhotra. Amidst all these speculations, even we cracked our brains and came up with some hatke jodis who wethinks would do justice to the roles initially etched for Jr Roshan and Kareena…

Ranbir Kapoor – Deepika Padukone: Though these two actors were in a relationship at one point, the Kapoor lad and his ex haven’t let their personal life affect their professional one. After parting ways, we saw the former flames in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani last year and totally loved their chemistry. So it wouldn’t be a bad idea at all if they came together for KJo’s intense love story, hai na?

Ranbir Kapoor – Alia Bhatt: These two haven’t worked together so far but we all know the SOTY babe has caught Ranbir’s attention with her acting skills and of course beauty. Also casting a new pair is the latest fad in Bollywood. Maybe Karan should do the same. It would certainly create a lot of buzz and even we are curious to see Ranbir-Alia jodi onscreen.

Ranbir Kapoor – Priyanka Chopra: He is the onscreen rockstar and she is the off screen rockstar. So who wouldn’t love to seem together in a film? And their endearing chemistry in Barfi! did steal our hearts. So after an unconventional love story, doing an intense one would be the perfect way to come back on the big screen wethinks!

Ranveer Singh – Deepika Padukone: Their crackling chemistry in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela was nothing less than a visual delight. If Johar gets Singh and his alleged girlfriend to play the lead in Shuddhi then wethinks we would be doing the most sensible thing. Neither would he regret his decision nor the audience would mind watching his film, no?

Ranveer Singh – Anushka Sharma: Their first film together Band Baaja Baaraat was a blockbuster mainly coz of their oh-so-hot chemistry. In fact, the two were said to be dating thereafter. Though the two aren’t together anymore, they do look great together onscreen. And it seems the chemistry on reel only gets better when actor’s are no longer together in real. Isn’t that the case with Ranbir-Deepika? In that case, Ranveer and Anushka do fit the bill here, no?

Ranveer Singh – Alia Bhatt: The Highway starlet is said to be the next Kareena Kapoor in B-town. And we all know Dippy’s alleged beau is dying to work with Bebo. Since Saif Ali Khan’s begum is no longer a part of Shuddhi, maybe Ram-Leela actor should team up with Alia. We know its not the same but even Ms Bhatt is equally talented and gorgeous, hai na?

While we wouldn’t mind watching any of these pairs in Karan’s intense love story, Bollywoodlifers vote and  tell us which jodi do you want to see in Shuddhi.
