Salman Khan to star in Karan Johar's ‘Shuddhi’

Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’ again hit the headlines for its casting. After Hrithik Roshan walked out of the highly prestigious project, several names came up but none of them was confirmed by the makers and now the latest is doing the round that Karan Johar has approached Salman Khan to play the lead protagonist in his dream project, ‘Shuddhi’.

Karan recently dropped at Salman Khan’s galaxy apartment in Bandra with ‘Shuddhi’ script and both had a long discussion over the project. Salman Khan is highly impressed with the script and expressed his desire to be a part of the project.

Sallu is always keen to work with Karan Johar. Their camaraderie was noticed when Salman appeared as a special guest in ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ where Karan is one of the judges. Both had a great time together laughing and chatting. For the first time Salman Khan appeared on Karan Johar’s chat show, ‘Koffee With Karan’ and there too the superstar expressed his desire to work under Dharma Productions.

Not only Salman but Karan too was longing to work with Sallu but his close association with Shahrukh Khan and considering that Salman is not in good terms with SRK restricted the filmmaker to cast the former. But now Kjo’s relationship with Shahrukh has turned bit sourand this might have helped Karan to approach Salman so easily.

Now the next question is who will be cast as female lead in ‘Shuddhi’ after Kareena Kapoor walked out of the project. Priyanka Chopra’s name was also surfaced but nothing has yet been confirmed.

After Hrithik walked out of the venture, there were reports that ‘Shuddhi’ might have shelved but Karan Johar proved the report incorrect by announcing its release date.

It is not yet confirmed when ‘Shuddhi’ will go on floor as Sallu has few lined up for shooting.
