No ‘Shuddhi’ for Hrithik, Kareena… but Karan doesn’t mind
No ‘Shuddhi’ for Hrithik, Kareena… but Karan doesn’t mind

There was a mini furore when we heard HrithikRoshan and Kareena Kapoor will be coming together for Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’. After ‘Yaadein’ and ‘Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon’, we have not seen the two of them in a film together. Their crackling chemistry (remember ‘O Ajnabi…?’The audience felt the heat through the celluloid!) has many fans wanting more. Of course the thrill of anticipation went kaput when the two decided against doing the film.

Sources close to Hrithik hinted at him avoiding any more speculations that could further damage his broken marriage and doing a film with Kareena Kapoor at this juncture would certainly turn many heads. Right before Roshan went off to marry Susanne, there had been loud rumours of his alleged closeness to Kareena.

The media has allowed the Roshans the space and time to adjust to the changes in their personal life, but Hrithikbelieves they won’t be as understanding if he agrees to do the film.

Kareena, on the other hand, was not keen on flaring up rumours either. Nevertheless, despite both their best efforts rumours are rife now suggesting that Karan Johar is miffed with them for leaving him in the lurch. After all, his PR had worked overtime spreading news about him managing the ultimate casting coup, which turned out to be a damn squib with the new revelations.

However, Johar insists a film won’t change his equations with his two best friends. “No film can change the bond I share with Hrithik and Kareena. We are and will continue to be close friends and nothing can come in the way of that,” he insisted.
