Karan Malhotra: Kareena Kapoor Khan very much in Shuddhi

The film’s director has finally come out in the open to rubbish rumours of Kareena’s ousting from Dharma Production’s upcoming film

Deepika Padukone replaced Kareena Kapoor Khan in Hrithik Roshan starrer Shuddhi, these were the rumours doing rounds. Bollywood director Karan Malhotra has quashed these reports. Karan Malhotra the director of this film said in an interview,  “Kareena is very much part of the film. It (rumours of Deepika Padukone doing the film) is not true. We have not approached anyone. It is one hero-heroine project… So it’s only Kareena in the film.” The buzz was that the Agneepath makers had replaced Ms Kapoor Khan after her last release bombed at the box office and that Ms Padukone was being roped after her back-to-back hits at the box office. Now with the makers of the film having openly denied it, we’re sure Kareena can breathe a sigh of relief.

And for all those waiting to watch the sizzling jodi of Hrithik-Kareena back together on screen after all these years, their wait has finally come to an end. This film is produced by Karan Johar and  the shooting will commence from next year and the film will hit cinema houses in 2015.
