When Karan Johar announced the final cast of ��Shuddhi�۪ as Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, many have been waiting for more news. After many months of no real developments, it�۪s now come to light that the project may well have been axed altogether.
A source close to Dharma Productions spoke to Mid-Day, ���No work has been done on the film. It has gone through many casting changes and every time a new actor came on board, the script had to be reworked to suit their personality. Apart from that, KJo wasn’t too confident about handing the directorial baton to Karan Malhotra since the latter’s last film (‘Brothers’) didn’t do well�.
Another source also went on to comment, ���Varun, who had stopped signing films to focus on ‘Shuddhi’, is now scouring for challenging scripts, indicating that the film has been shelved. He is now busy with other projects ��� his brother Rohit Dhawan’s ‘Dishoom’ to be followed by a gangster flick. Alia, too, will shortly begin shooting with Shah Rukh Khan for Gauri Shinde�۪s next�.
News has it that Dhawan and Bhatt could be sharing the screen in Shashank Khaitan�۪s forthcoming film, but this is yet to be confirmed.
