Shuddhi has been in the news for quite some time now, and it’s all to do with the casting of the film. Of what we know, Karan Johar has roped in Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor for his prestigious project.
After Hrithik Roshan opted out of Shuddhi due to health issue, the film was almost shelved, but now the project has been revived with the arrival of Salman Khan.
For Karan Johar, Kareena was always the first choice for Shuddhi but she walked out owing to some difference with the filmmaker, and now both have sorted out the issue, and she is almost confirmed for the mammoth project. Karan considers Kareena his sister, and apart from a great professional relationship, the duo bonds very well personally.
“Karan has always considered Kareena as his sister and there is no rift between them, due to Hrithik’s brain surgery, Shuddhi was delayed indefinitely which also affected Kareena’s date. But now all is clear and the film soon will be on floors.” revealed a source close to Karan.
This would be Salman Khan‘s second movie with Karan Johar post Kuch Kuch Hota Hai that released way back in 1998.
Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor have worked in movies like, Kyon Ki, Bodyguard and Main Aur Mrs. Khanna.
The film initially had Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead but later both of them walked out of the project. This was followed by reports that Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone might replace them but the roomers died sooner than expected.
On the other hand, Karan Johar says he is flattered that the upcoming film is being given so much importance.
“I am so flattered that something that I have done has become such a talk point… I feel I am beyond flattered. I have to thank media for giving Shuddhi so much importance. It makes me feel loved and important,” stated Karan Johar at an event.
Karan went on to say, “Both me and the director Karan Malhotra want to thank everyone for giving ‘Shuddhi’ so much importance. I never thought any film of mine will garner so much importance. I thought we were talking about Shuddhi more than national politics,” added the talented filmmaker.
However, there is no official confirmation yet from Dharma Productions on this one.
