Karan Johar kicks out Kareena, picks Deepika for ‘Shuddhi’


According to the latest report, filmmaker Karan Johar has dropped best friend and Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor from his dream project, ‘Shuddhi’ and signed Deepika Padukone. With back to back hits, Deepika has reached a height which is unimaginable. Today she is the most bankable and reigning queen of Bollywood and Karan wants a successful actress for his big venture.

If things go as per plan then we will get to see Deepika Padukone opposite Hrithik Roshan in ‘Shuddhi’ and not Kareena. Another reason cited for Karan dropping Kareena from the film is the actress’s packed schedule. Kareena is not keen to give so much time to the film. If we go by the latest development. Karan’s plan to bring the two charming stars of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor after 12 long years is not going to take place .

"It's true, she has been approached. However, she still needs to read the script and take a decision," a source close to the project told media.

All the four releases of Deepika, ‘Race 2’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela-Ram Leela’ did a stupendous business at the box-office this year while Kareena Kapoor failed to shine in 2013. Her film, ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ drastically failed at the box-office.

On looking at Deepika’s success graph, Karan had a change of mind. The filmmaker met Deepika and she has not given her nod as she is yet to read the script.

If Karan brings Deepika on the board then this would be Deepika first film with Hrithik Roshan.

The film is expected to go on floor early next year. Currently, Hrithik is out of the country for treatment and once he returns, Karan will go ahead with the film. ‘Shuddhi’ will be directed by Karan Malhotra.

Recently, Kareena had a Koffee with Karan but it seems the koffee did not taste good. What say!
