Kareena Kapoor Khan is not part of Karan Johar’s Shuddhi and according to her the project has been shelved. Hrithik Roshan was cast in the lead for the film but he quit due to health reasons. Kareena, who was finalised opposite Hrithik, also left the project.
Reportedly, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone were also offered the movie but they are now working on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. There were rumours that Salman Khan and Kareena would be part of the film but the 33-year-old actor has rubbished such reports. “Will Salman be part of Shuddhi? It is all created by you all (media). Shuddhi is shelved. Karan is working on The Warrior remake I think with Siddharth Malhotra and Akshay Kumar… this is what Karan said. It (shooting) will start in August,” Kareena said.
The actress is at Ramoji Film City to shoot for Rohit Shetty’s next Singham Returns, which also stars Ajay Devgn.
Kareena said she shares a good bond with Johar, contrary to reports that all is not well between them. “Karan and we meet often. He loves to party. He is a very good friend. He is a brother to me and we share a deep bond. He is somebody who can be there for you,” Kareena said.
