Karan Johar is bringing his "Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham" co-stars Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor back in his next home production "Shuddhi".
The film will also see Hrithik reunite with his "Agneepath" director Karan Malhotra.
"I'm excited to see Hrithik and Kareena back after 12 years. When Karan (Malhotra) came to me with Shuddhi, his desire was to cast Hrithik and Kareena. I spoke to both of them and they were happy to be on board," Johar said in a statement.
Johar is confident that the winning trio of Malhotra, Kapoor and Roshan will work for the "intense love story."
"The film is an intense love story and because it has a reincarnation theme, he has written a script that is dramatic and outstanding. Also, such a theme requires actors who can bring the desired intensity. To me, it is really an important casting. But I don't look at it as a coup. Kareena is beautiful, talented and a powerhouse performer. And Hrithik, well, what can I say? He can melt a nation just with his eyes," Johar added.
