Agneepath director Karan Malhotra, currently busy finalising the script of his second directorial venture ‘Shuddhi’, has rubbished all rumours that have been doing the rounds.
While there were reports of Malhotra signing Kareena Kapoor and Anushka Sharma as the female lead, a local daily Mid-Day reported last night that veteran actor Danny Denzongpa has been roped in to play the negative role.
“All reports are fake. I never approached Danny for this film. I have my wish list ready for the film. We will rope in some strong veteran actor, but we have not approached anybody so far. We didn’t cast Kareena Kapoor neither Anushka Sharma. In a months time, I will finalise the leading lady for my film.”
Starring Hrithik Roshan, Shuddhi will be produced by Karan Johar. The film releases during Diwali 2014.
