Hrithik in never-seen-before avatar in ‘Shuddhi’

Karan Malhotra’s new project ‘Shuddhi’ is very much talked about for various reasons. Recently, report surfaced that Kareena Kapoor will get six pack abs for the film and now the latest report during the rounds is Hrithik will be seen in a brand new avatar in the film.

When Malhotra was asked about bringing Kareena and Hrithik together on the screen, he said, "It's too early to reveal anything right now, but one thing I can assure is that Hrithik Roshan will be seen in a never-seen-before look in the film".

"His look will be something new and different and I am not allowed to speak much about it at this point of time," he added.

Karan Malhotra refused the report of Kareena building six packs abs.

Rubbishing the rumor, Malhotra said: "I don't know from where these rumours come from. Why does she need to get six-pack abs? It's absolutely false. All I can say is that Kareena will look as beautiful as ever in this film. We will start shooting for the film by December.

It 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.

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.”
