Karan Johar and Karan Malhotra’s ‘Shhuddhi‘ has been in the news since times immemorial. Be it the cast or its story, the film has been abuzz with rumors and recently after having a confirmation on the final cast of the film including Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, Varun has finally spoken about it.
It is not everyday that a young actor replaces Salman Khan in a film but that has happened with Varun. After the original cast of the film Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor walked out of it, producer Karan Johar had announced that Salman Khan will be playing the lead. Although post Salman’s legal complications came to the fore, the makers thought it’s time to bring a new cast to the already delayed project.
Talking about it to a popular daily, Varun confirmed that the film is not based on Amish Tripathi’s best-selling novel Immortals Of Meluha. The actor said that the film is on a completely different subject and not related to the Shiva trilogy.
Shhuddhi is expected to hit theaters during Diwali next year.
