Filmmaker Karan Malhotra, who is gearing up for his second film, Shuddhi, says the leading lady for the film is not yet finalised. However, there were reports that Kareena Kapoor has been roped in for the project opposite Hrithik Roshan. “The leading lady is not yet finalised. So far, it’s only Hrithik who has been finalised. I can’t talk much about whether Kareena is in the film as long as Karan (Johar) doesn’t make an official announcement,” he says.
Nevertheless, the director of the 2012 film, Agneepath — the remake of the 1990 film of the same name, says he has his wish list ready. “My fingers are crossed and I hope the best actress, who fits the bill, becomes a part of the film,” he adds.
The filmmaker says that the film will be shot in Mumbai and Uttarakhand. “The film will go on floors in November by the end of this year, and will be widely shot in Mumbai and Uttarakhand. It is slated for release in 2014,” he says.
