Mumbai: Karan Malhotra has finally pulled off a dream cast for his next directorial venture `Shuddhi`. Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor team up again after a long hiatus. The director says a cliche it may sound, but the two will be seen in a completely new avatar in the movie.

"Yes, finally we have confirmed Kareena for the role. I feel she is a stunning looking girl and she suites the character best. I am sure she will do justice to the film," said Malhotra.

"I am not allowed to talk much about my film, but all I can assure you is Kareena and Hrithik will be seen in a never before role in `Shuddhi`. I know it`s the most cliche line ever, but I can assure you on that," added the director who made "Agneepath" remake with Hrithik.

Was it a conscious effort to reunite Hrithik-Kareena on screen almost after 10 years?

"No, it was not a conscious decision, it was just a coincidence. They both look lovely together, the script demanded them and I am lucky to have them on board," he said.

Kareena-Hrithik last outing together was 2003 release `Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon`. They were also seen together in `Mujhse Dosti Karoge!` and `Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham` and `Yaadein`.

Talking about Kareena, Malhotra said: "Kareena is a thorough professional and she took it as any other job. I don`t think there are any differences."

`Shuddhi`, which will be produced by Karan Johar, will go on floors by early next year.
