I was thrown out of ‘Shuddhi’, Salman Khan


Salman Khan is the most sought after actor in Bollywood. Filmmakers struggle to get dates of the superstar and in such circumstances throwing the actor out of the film sounds bizarre. Yes, you read it right, Salman Khan during the trailer launch of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ quipped that he was thrown out of the film.

It’s shocking to know that Salman Khan was kicked out of ‘Shuddhi’ by Karan Johar, who shares a great rapport with the superstar. It is almost confirmed that Varun Dhawan replaced Salman Khan in the magnum opus, ‘Shuddhi’. When Salman was asked by media about backing out of ‘Shuddhi’, he said, “I was thrown out of the film.”

Salman then turned to Kareena, who was seated by his side during the event and asked, “Why are you out of the film?”

Kareena replied, “I agreed because Hrithik was in the film. And eventually he didn’t do it.”

Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’ will be finally made with Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan. Earlier, it was confirmed with Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor but when Hrithik backed out, Kareena too walked out of the project. The filmmaker then decided to cast Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone but that too flopped. Later, Salman Khan was approached but the superstar backed out due to the on-going court cases.

However, the actor will be next seen in Kabir Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ slated for Eid release.
