Looks like Diwali 2014 is all set for Karan Johar. In the times when release dates of films has become of prime importance, the filmmaker has now blocked the date for his Hrithik Roshan starrer Shuddhi. The film to be directed by Karan Malhotra is yet to go on the floors.
The team of Agneepath that did a business of around Rs 125 crore is back with this project. In the meanwhile, the leading lady is yet to be finalised.
Johar confirms the buzz and says, “These days it is very important to have the release date in order. Shuddhi is a love story at its heart and with Hrithik’s intensity, he will be seen in a completely different avatar than in Agneepath.”
The filmmaker adds, “This is a big budget film and with its theme and qualities and the vision that we have, it warrants a celebration period like Diwali for its release.”
