The much-talked about project Shhuddhi has forever been in speculation over its casting. Touted to be Karan Johar’s most ambitious project, the film’s casting woes were blown out of proportion after a series of names came up to be associated with this project.
After Hrithik Roshan walking out of this project, there has been a constant stir in the media over who would be replacing the star. Although Salman Khan’s name was being suggested, there was no official confirmation over the star’s association with the film.
A source close to Koimoi recently spoke to Salman who confirmed that Karan Johar’s Shhuddhi is not shelved. On the contrary, superstar Salman Khan has been roped in for the film but the film’s leading lady is still in haze and hasn’t been zeroed on.
Salman told the source, “Yes I am doing a film with Karan and that I guess is Shhuddhi only. Then I am doing a film with Aditya Chopra and also with Kabir Khan. I am also doing a film with Boney Kapoor and another one with Mahesh Majrekar. No Entry Mein Entry is starting soon.”
Karan Johar too confirmed the news saying, “Shhuddhi will star Salman Khan and will release Diwali 2016.”
Salman is currently busy promoting Kick and post that will start shooting for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Well, looks like the delayed project ‘Shhuddhi‘ will have to wait even more as the superstar finishes his previous commitments!
