Hrithik, Kareena’s ‘Shuddhi’ will be 150 crore movie


Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor starrer, ‘Shuddhi’ is going to be the costliest film ever to be made in the history of Indian cinema. The film is going to be a mammoth affair and it is said that ‘Shuddhi’ will be made at a whopping budget of Rs 150 crore. The makers have chosen Bhopal as their prime shooting location. Maximum portion of the film will be shot in Bhopal.

If we look back the budget in which Bollywood films are made then we will find that Anthony D’Souza’s ‘Blue’ and Shahrukh Khan’s ‘RA.One’ were the costliest Bollywood films ever to be made on a huge budget of Rs 100 crore each but it seems ‘Shuddhi’ will suppressed both these movies and will create a new record.

Director Karan Mahotra visited many locations of Bhopal and zeroed upon some exotic locations of old Bhopal and some other crowded places in the newer parts of the city, including Sadar Manzil and New Market. Currently, he is in Hyderabad to explore some more locations.

Says a source, “Karan has finalised some locations in Bhopal. The buzz is that they will start shooting in Bhopal in December as they will not get the required permissions to shoot before the elections. The schedule will last for 20 to 25 days.” Says the director, “We are trying to make a nice dramatic film but yes for sure it will be big. The costs and budgets depends upon the production house. We will try to make the movie with the best possible resources available.”

'Shuddhi' will bring Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor together after 10 long years. The film will also see some intimate moments between the two. Karan Johar will produce the film and the film is slated for 2014 Diwali release. 

The film is very much talked about for Kareena’s masculine avatar. The actress will build six packs abs to fit the bill. In ‘Tashan’ audience got to see a totally new avatar of Kareena who shed out ample flab to get into size zero. Her effort in ‘Tashan’ was appreciated and now the Begum will go extreme point to develop six packs abs.

Usually, six packs abs is a term associated with boys but Kareena will show her talent to beat the boys behind by developing six packs abs which is one of its kind in the history of Indian cinema. Kareena Kapoor will go to the extreme end to get a masculine look for ‘Shuddhi’.
