The film was slated to reunite Roshan with his ‘Agneepath’ director Karan Malhotra and his former co-star Kareena Kapoor but the actor’s health and subsequent separation from wife Sussanne kept delaying the project.
“Karan Malhotra (director) and I have decided to unite in the most ambitious way post-Shuddhi. For now I cannot allow a vision like Shuddhi to stagnate any further. I had the finest experience an actor can have working with Karan Malhotra in ‘Agneepath’,” Hrithik said in a statement here.
“I’m sure both my dear Karans (director Malhotra and producer Johar) are going to go beyond with this one. Shuddhi remains a part of me in spirit and I am sure it will be a landmark in our cinema. I wish them all the best,” he said.
There is a buzz that Kareena would also not be a part of the film, mainly due to date issues, as the film got postponed due to Hrithik’s health.
