Shuddhi: Hrithik Roshan Film, directed by Karan Malhotra

Big announcement, probably the biggest of the year so far! Hrithik Roshan has signed Karan Malhotra’s second film titled Shuddhi.

Karan Johar made the announcement on Twitter “Team Agneepath is back… Karan Malhotra will direct his next with Hrithik Roshan in a 2014 diwali release titled SHUDDHI (purification)”

Malhotra last directed Hrithik in one of 2012’s biggest hits Agneepath. Their new venture Shuddhi will see Hrithik enacting a very complex character. Apart from the lead protagonist, the film will also have a strong villainous character (much like Agneepath). The rest of the cast is yet to be finalised.

The Shuddhi shooting begins in November 2013, soon after the release of Krrish 3. The makers are targeting a Diwali 2014 release.

Karan also spoke about the film to Times Of India.

It’s a large-scale love story, a genre I love. I had a wonderful experience. Karan has a fantastic vision, a combination of aesthetic and commercial sense. Hrithik is a close friend and an outstanding actor. So, it’s great that the three of us are teaming up again. Diwali is also synonymous with films that entertain the entire family. Shuddhi is a love story that gives you everything that you look for in a festive release. I hope that we live up to the expectations that Agneepath has generated.

Hrithik Roshan

I’m really excited to work with the two Karan’s again. Agneepath is an extremely special film for me and I can’t wait to recreate a new world again.”

    Diwali will truly be a joyous and extraordinary festival again when families can once again flock to theatres knowing full well that only real classy full on entertaining movies will be on view.
    Keep on rocking.

  • Salman has done films with all superstars, the only exceptiion is hrithik, just hope my two favourite actors come together atleast for one film.

    Their is no doubt that Hrithik is the finest actor of our industry at the moment and salman is the best entertainer of bollywood, just imagine two most good looking actors ever coming together with their style and persona that will be treat for any girl.

  • Great news…Hrithik is the best actor in the country today alongwith Ranbir Kapoor…Luv u superhero….The biggest superstar ever…Best in all aspects…Looks, body, acting skills, dancing skills, is there anything which he can’t do…India’s answer to hollywood…

  • i am a big fan of dharma productions, i had loved agneepath alot :)) now this news is just wow for me………can’t wait , hrithik rocksss :))

  • HR already has greater respect than salman khan in industry . coz salman has no global appeal .
    Its really really tough to overtake SRK n Aamir .
    But the kind of films HR is signing , it luks likes he will equal the three khans in stardom soon . n will also overtake them .
    1. krish 3 ——> sh/blockbuster
    2. bang bang ——> hit/sh
    3. shuddhi ——-> blockbuster
    and if he signs paani , then his worldwide stardom will increase many times .

    all the best to the biggest star in industry today after srk n aamir.
    i hope u overtake them soon .

  • This film will be a big diaster as singhm 2 is releasing in same day. Every people know that ajay rohit jodi is better than hritic karan jodi. Ajay star power is better than hritic , he has 4 film in 100 cr club equal to sallu and after releasing of himattwala he will the only actor whose 5 film in 100 cr club. Bang bang will be hit film as hritic and katrina has great chemistry but if sundhi release 2014 diwali then it will sure flop as it looks very smal film compare to the sequle of rohit ajay blockbuster singhm.

  • 1-2 fans are really embarrassing or just trolling.

    @shekar suman are u kidding or just out of your depth, hrithik is nothing without kjo that has to be the biggest joke ever, Hrithik has just done two kjo films in his 13 years.

    @Rowdy rathore you need to worry more about your actor then hrithik, hrithik has achieved more in 13 years then your actor will ever achieve and that’s the fact rather then opinion, anyway have a nice day and support your actor rather then thinking other actors to fail, oh and hrithik is highest paid actor at the moment you can check in google.

  • @ajay when you talk about ajay devgan star power and 4 films in 100 cr club but you fail to mention he has given big disasters then anyother actor, at the sametime hrithiks opening day record is 25 cr which is more then tezz life time earnings and don’t forget hrithik did only 1 masala film and earned more then 125 cr which is more then any ajay devgan`s masala film til date.

  • @navin rightly said finally we will get two better diwalis.the so called ‘king’s so called ‘classics’ are unbearable for us now.thanks hrithik.
    this two films should get huge collections on diwali and show that to srkians that diwali is a biggest holiday in india,it should be record breaking movies so that this srkians can not give silly reasons for underperformances of last two diwali releases.
    best of luck to new king of diwali mr.roshan,we akkians are with you.

  • @ajay krish 3 will decide hritic future its budget looks like ra1 and if the film get ra1 then you know what happend with kites. Ajay success ratio is better than hritic then no doubt if singham 2 and suddhi clash same date then i am very confidant that karan hritic jodi nothing for ajay rohit jodi and singham 2 will be the winer and sandi will be the diastar. Love you rohit shetty all his fan waiting for rohit’s first 200cr film chennai express.

  • @ajay,rowdy rathore,sekhar suman, haha losers, i can smell ur insecurity !! bardaasht nahi hota na ki hrithik zyada films kar raha h aur wo top pe aane wala h ?? well ab kya karein, ab waqt hrithik ka hi aaya h !! no one cn stop him !! he is d nxt box office king !! ajay fans, plzz tek a chill pill, singham k baad ajay top 6 me aya jabki hrithik day 1 se top 5 me h , aajtak !!
