Ever since Karan Johar announced producing Shuddhi, a film based on Amish Tripathi’s Immortals Of Meluha, the film has been facing hiccups. Earlier Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan were to star in the film but both the actors opted out.
Then Karan Johar announced the release date of the film which will be directed by Karan Malhotra – December 25, 2014 – without even finalising ths star cast.
Then came reports of Deepika Padukone being confirmed for the film and the guessing game continued for the leading man. Various names like Ranveer Singh, Shah Rukh Khan have been doing the rounds to play the male lead in Shuddhi. Even there were also reports of Ranveer being signed for the film.But now we hear that Aamir Khan has been approached Karan for the film.
“Karan is still trying to lock the lead for his film and has recently shared the script of Shuddhi with Aamir, but nothing has been finalised yet. Aamir has asked Karan to give him time to go through the script,” a leading tabloid quoted its source.
If the news is true, it would be interesting to watch Aamir and Deepika’s chemistry on screen but we can’t say anything before the official announcement.
