Deepika Padukone not approached for ‘Shuddhi’

Karan Johar’s mammoth project, ‘Shuddhi’ is the highlight of discussion at the present point of time when both Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor backed out of the project. Hrithik’s walking out of the project gave rise to the speculation that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh will be signed for the film but the latest report suggests that neither Deepika nor Ranveer has been approached for the film.

When Deepika was asked about casting in ‘Shuddhi’, she said, "I don't know if even they (makers of 'Shuddhi') know what is happening on that project. But no, I haven't been approached for it yet".

Since the embryonic stage ‘Shuddhi' has been on the talk. First Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead were announced, and then it got delayed for one after another reason. Initially, it got postponed due to Hrithik's health issues. Later, the actor quit the movie and now Kareena is also rumoured to have backed out.

However, Deepika is keen to do the movie and has said that if the makers approach her, she would love to do the film.

"I would love to do that film but I don't think Karan (Johar) would come to me with something that he didn't think that I would do justice to," said the 'Ram-leela' actress.

"But if he thinks that I would do justice to it then I would love to do that film," she added.

Deepika is currently unaware of the film's status, and said: "I think at the point when Hrithik was doing it, I would have definitely been interested to do it. Now that he is not doing it, I don't know what is happening with the project."

The actress is fine on working with any other actor in 'Shuddhi'?

"Sure, why not? But like I said it depends on what they (makers of 'Shuddhi') themselves plan to do with the project if it even happens in the first place," Deepika said.

‘Shuddhi’ is Karan's Dharma Productions to be directed by Karan Malhotra.
