Ever since Krish 3′s release, Hrithik’s headaches have been recurring and due to that, he will not be able to work for Karan Malhotra’s Shuddhi in which he will be paired opposite Kareena Kapoor for a while. The shooting of Shuddhi which was supposed to take place in the beginning of next year has hence been pushed to the middle of 2014. And Kareena, who has given nearly 200 dates in the beginning of next year for Shuddhi is now left with a lot of free time in her hands.
With that, she decided to start off the shooting of Dev Benegal’s film with Farhan Akhtar which is yet to be titled. Dev, who initially thought that he will not be shooting for this film until March or something is now hurrying up with the pre-production process so that he can start off with the shooting already.
So looks like the Dev Benegal’s film starring Farhan Akhtar and Kareena Kapoor will hit the theatres sooner than it was scheduled to. This is going to be one movie to watch out for, as we know how Dev Benegal has a knack for dealing with undealt subjects brilliantly as was seen in English Patient and Road Movie, along with the fact that Farhan Akhtar has chosen to act in it.
Speaking on how Kareena is all excited about working for this film, a close friend of hers said, “She appreciates Farhan’s work as an actor and director and saw Bhaag Milkha Bhaag thrice. She is going to spend January preparing for the role. This is Dev’s first commercial film and she wants to spend time with the director so that they are in sync with each other’s vision.”
