|Hrithik Roshan is officially confirmed as the leading man for Karan Johar’s next, Shuddhi. While there was buzz that Karan wanted Kareena Kapoor to be in the film with Hrithik Roshan, nothing of the sort has materialized. Not just that, at an award function, Kareena even reportedly ignored Hrithik!
Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan both were present at a hair and make-up awards event, but Kareena reportedly gave Hrithik a cold shoulder. Why Kareena steered clear of Hrithik when at several occasions the actress has insisted that she would like to work with him if the right project comes her way? Anybody’s guess!
Their sizzling chemistry in the films like Mujhse Dosti Karoge, Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, and Yaadein was liked by the audience and there were even talks about their growing camaraderie off-screen as well. After Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon the two weren’t seen in any film together.
When the makers began their hunt for lead actress in Shuddhi, there was a strong buzz that Karan was keen to rope in Kareena, but it couldn’t happen, and Anushka Sharma has apparently been signed instead.
Actress Katrina Kaif was also reportedly under consideration for the role opposite Hrithik Roshan, since she’s on very good terms with Karan Johar, and has already done a film with Hrithik. But the movie requires a girl with Indian looks, and Katrina didn’t quite fit the bill.
Hrithik is yet to start working on Shuddhi! But the question remains will the actor ever get paired with Kareena Kapoor?
