After Hrithik and Ranveer, Aamir turns down ‘Shuddhi’
Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’ casting dilemma continues. After Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh walked out of the project, Aamir Khan also showed a red signal to the project. The perfectionist has reportedly turned down Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’.
After facing rejection from Hrithik and Ranveer, Karan approached Aamir Khan but he too declined.
A source told a leading daily, "the first time around, he had asked Karan to give him some time to go through the script. He then turned it down saying that the script didn't work for him. Now hse has again politely refused to do the film."
It is heard that Hrithik Roshan walked out of the film due to money. He had a fall out with the filmmaker on money matter and said no to the prestigious project.
It is rumoured that Hrithik wanted a higher percentage of profits of the film which was not accepted by Karan Johar. Following which, the Greek God of Bollywood Hrithik Rohan walked out of the film.
However, Karan Johar took to twitter to deny the report and called it a total “baseless, untrue and completely uninformed” report. It is said that Hrithik asked for 40 percent profit share of the film but Karan is not ready to share profit with him.
Karan tweeted, “Article insinuating that Hrithik asked for a large percentage of profit for #Shuddhi is baseless,untrue and completely uninformed...
In the past, Hrithik issued a press statement
in which he had confirmed that he is no longer a part of ‘Shuddhi’ but there
was no mention of money.
“Karan Malhotra and I have decided to unite in the most ambitious way post ‘Shuddhi’. For now I cannot allow a vision like Shuddhi to stagnate any further. I had the finest experience an actor can have working with Karan M in 'Agneepath' and I'm sure both my dear Karans are going to go beyond with this one! ‘Shuddhi’ remains a part of me in spirit & am sure it will be a landmark in our cinema. I wish them all the best!”
If Hrithik walked out of the film due to money then Ranveer has turned down the project for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’. He preferred ‘Bajirao Mastani’ over ‘Shuddhi’.
