Kareena to romance Salman Khan in Kjo’s ‘Shuddhi’

For quite a long time a question of uncertainty surrounded Karan Johar’s most prestigious project ‘Shuddhi’ as who will be playing the lead role in the film but now things are vivid clear as Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor have been confirmed for the lead role. After Hrithik Roshan opted out of the movie due to health issue, ‘Shuddhi’ almost shelved but now the project revived with the arrival of the superstar of Bollywood, Salman Khan.

Karan Johar has signed Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor for ‘Shuddhi’. Kareena was the first choice for ‘Shuddhi’ but she walked out owing to some difference with the filmmaker and now both have sorted out the issue and she is almost confirmed for the mammoth project. Karan considers Kareena his sister and apart from a great professional relationship, the duo bonds very well personally.

 A close source reveals, “Karan has always considered Kareena as his sister and there is no rift between them, Due to Hrithik’s brain surgery Shuddhi was delayed indefinitely which also affected Kareena’s date. But now all is clear and the film soon will be on floors”.

This is Salman Khan’s first movie with Karan Johar while Kareena has worked with the ace filmmaker couple of times. Karan and Sallu always keen to work together but due to the filmmaker's close association with Shahrukh Khan, they did not get the opportunity to work together.

Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor have worked in movies like, ‘Kyon Ki...’, ‘Bodyguard’ , ‘Main Aur Mrs Khanna’ and also done a special item song ‘Fevicol Se’ in Salman Khan starrer, ‘Dabangg 2’.
