Their’s used to be quite the pairing back in the days, but it has been a while since Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor shared screen space. Now, however, fans of the two can rejoice – they will be appearing opposite each other in Karan Johar and Karan Malhotra‘s upcoming film, Shuddhi. And yes, it’s official :)
KJo told TOI:
When Karan (Malhotra) came to me with Shuddhi, his desire was to cast Hrithik and Kareena. I spoke to both of them and they were happy to be on board. The film is an intense love story and because it has a reincarnation theme, he has written a script that is dramatic and outstanding. Also, such a theme requires actors who can bring the desired intensity. To me, it is really an important casting. But I don’t look at it as a coup. Kareena is beautiful, talented and a powerhouse performer. And Hrithik, well, what can I say? He can melt a nation just with his eyes.
The two were last seen 10 years ago in Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon, and before that had done films like Mujhse Dosti Karoge, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Yaadein. It’ll be great to see them work opposite each other after a gap of a decade… wonder if they’ll still have the kind of chemistry that attracted people towards them in the first place?
On that note, can you believe that it’s been over ten years since films like MPKDH and K3G released? I’m feeling a bit old now… especially since I can still recite almost every Poo dialogue from memory.
