But Ranveer Singh opted out and now it is heard that Salman Khan has given his nod to Karan Johar who is producing the film.
As for the leading lady it still remains a mystery . Shuddhi will be helmed by Karan Malhotra and produced by Johar under his banner Dharma Productions.
The film got delayed due to Hrithik’s brain surgery following an accident on the sets of ‘Bang Bang’ and then because the actor got busy with the promotions of his home production ‘Krissh 3′.
Soon after, Hrithik Roshan, the film’s lead actress Kareena Kapoor Khan also quit the project. “I don’t know when it will happen. Since one and half years, it has got postponed. I haven’t met Karan Johar and Hrithik is busy doing a movie titled ‘Bang Bang’. Whenever the movie goes to the floors, I will decide whether to do it,” Kareena had said.
Earlier there were speculations that Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have replaced Hrithik and Kareena in the film. But Karan Johar informed he has not signed anyone for the film yet. The film will be directed by Karan Malhotra of ‘Agneepath’ fame.
