Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’ has become one of the most talked about projects in Bollywood recently.
Previously, the movie was to star Hrithik Roshan. After that, rumours circulated of Salman Khan’s supposed involvement. But last heard; the movie is now going to have Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in the leads. A few years back Johar had himself announced that ‘Shuddhi’ is to be made with a new cast, i.e., Dhawan and Bhatt, reports DNA India.
Apparently, director Karan Malhotra had to rework the script to make it fit for the younger stars. Much time has passed since then and now, rumours are circulating that the project has been shelved altogether.
However, a recent report on Bollywood Life has offered a ray of hope. The web portal quoted Apoorva Mehta, CEO of Dharma Productions as saying, “Shuddhi is definitely something that we are looking to make, but we want to do it at the right time. No, it has not been shelved and it will be made pretty soon.”
Speaking further about whether Dhawan and Bhatt will be the lead pair in ‘Shuddhi’ post ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ (2017), Mehta added, “We are still talking. The script is going through revisions like lots of scripts go through. So once everything is ready, we will take a call.”
