Hrithik Roshan to get makeover for Shuddhi

Actor Hrithik Roshan will sport a never-seen-before look in “Shuddhi”, says the film’s director Karan Malhotra.

Talking about the movie, for which he is bringing Hrithik and Kareena Kapoor together on the screen, Malhotra told IANS, “It’s too early to reveal anything right now, but one thing I can assure is that Hrithik Roshan will be seen in a never-seen-before look in the film”.

“His look will be something new and different and I am not allowed to speak much about it at this point of time,” he added.

Rumours are rife that once size zero actress Kareena will aim for a six-pack for “Shuddhi”.

Rubbishing the same, Malhotra said: “I don’t know from where these rumours come from. Why does she need to get six-pack abs? It’s absolutely false. All I can say is that Kareena will look as beautiful as ever in this film. We will start shooting for the film by December.”

BOLLYWOOD

Bollywood is the informal term popularly used for the Hindi-language film industry based in Mumbai (Bombay), Maharashtra, India. The term is often incorrectly used to refer to the whole of Indian cinema; however, it is only a part of the total Indian film industry, which includes other production centres producing films in multiple languages.[1] Bollywood is the largest film producer in India and one of the largest centres of film production in the world.[2][3][4]

Bollywood is formally referred to as Hindi cinema.[5] There has been a growing presence of Indian English in dialogue and songs as well. It is common to see films that feature dialogue with English words (also known as Hinglish), phrases, or even whole sentences.
