Dharma Productions’ most ambitious project – so the reports go- is set to go on the floors by the end of the year. ‘Shuddhi’ sees the return of the much-loved jodi, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. BizAsia has learnt that Kapoor Khan is gearing up for the two eras that the film will be set in.
Designer Manish Malhotra will be organising and making the costumes that Kapoor Khan will adorn and he will need to ensure that his attire captures both the 1910s and the 1960s for the movie. Talking to Mumbai Mirror, a source said, “The film will be set in two different eras–one in the 1910s and the other in the 1960s. Kareena needs to lose some weight and tone up for the role and she is already undergoing vigorous training”.
“Manish has been given the mammoth task to recreate costumes of two eras. He has already started work on the 60s look. Bebo will be seen in traditional and modern clothes. Karan will first shoot portions of the 60’s era and then go back in time. Manish is constantly in touch with Kareena about the look and she will do the look test as soon as she returns from Beirut,” added the source.
Kapoor Khan is said to be flying to Beirut soon to accompany hubby Saif as he shoots for Kabir Khan’s next in the region.
