BizAsia reported yesterday that Karan Johar had signed Salman Khan for Shuddhi۪ for the whopping amount of 150 crores. However, it seems the latest buzz suggests that Aamir Khan has also signed a project with the producer and will be paid close to the same amount.
Johar has reportedly approached Aamir for Shuddhi۪ after Hrithik Roshan left the film. However, although the rumours were never confirmed or denied, it seems their conversation was not fruitful. Aamir, however, has now signed another project with Dharma Productions, the details of which will be decided as time goes on. Johar has left it upto Aamir what he feels comfortable with and what kind of film he wants to do.
One wonders if there is a reason that Johar seems to be cosying up with Salman and Aamir because there seems to be some distance of late between him and Shah Rukh Khan. Johar has recently said there is no problem but speculation will still remain.
