Kareena to get masculine avatar for 'Shuddhi'

Chiseled body and six pack abs have remained firmly in the domain of the male leads. You have drooled over those washboard abs of Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan and even Aamir khan in Ghajini. But now even this feature is no longer exclusively in the male domain. Kareena Kapoor will be seen sporting six pack abs in her upcoming movie Shuddhi. Reportedly, she was requested by filmmaker Karan Malhotra to create a chiseled body with six pack abs for the film. Bebo is no stranger to exhausting workouts and infact, she seems to be able to change the size of her body with sheer hard work. She created a national sensation with her size zero body in 2008 in the film Tashan. At the moment, she is playing the role of a luscious beauty in Gori tere pyar mein. Soon after this film is finished, she will start training with a martial arts expert in order to get into the required shape.

This is the first time that any Indian female lead actress will sport a six pack abs. though action based heroines are not unknown in Bollywood, the chiseled body had remained a male feature till now. It leaves us wondering what shape Hrithik has to be in so that he can compete with the six pack of Bebo. The screen chemistry of the lead pair will also be interesting to see. They are pairing up after a long gap of 10 years. Their last film together was Main Prem ki Diwani Hoon.

The story of Shuddhi is an intense love story where elements like reincarnation will be used with subtlety. “I spoke to Hrithik and Kareena  and they were happy to be on board. The film is an intense love story and because it has a reincarnation theme, Karan has written a script that is dramatic and outstanding. To me, it is really an important casting,” said Karan Johar who managed this casting coup. The shooting of the film is scheduled to begin late this year and it is earmarked for a Diwali release in 2014. What we are wondering is what does an intense love drama with reincarnation got to do with a heroine sporting six pack abs? The story is sure to have some unusual twists and turns and expectations and speculations are already mounting around this film.
