Ever since Karan Johar decided to make his film based on the first book from the Shiva Trilogy, he keeps running into problems. But it seems that KJo's "Shuddhi" issues have finally been resolved.
Karan had initially cast Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor in the film as the lead pair. It was an exciting pairing and everyone was looking forward to seeing both together on screen after a long time. But as it turned out, Hrithik had some health issues and walked out of the film after delaying the shooting for a considerable length of time. A little while later, Bebo also decided to walk out as the project didn't seem to be taking off anytime soon. Left without his lead pair, KJo decided to approach Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone for the lead roles in his film. Ranveer-Deepika have been a hot pair since their first film together, and are also a real life couple. But as KJo's luck would have it, this hot couple decided to take up Bhansali's "Bajirao Mastaani" instead of KJo's film.
Recently, it was reported that Karan drove into Salman's Bandra residence with the script of Shuddhi, and the meeting was very positive. It is almost final now that Salman shall do "Shuddhi" for Karan Johar, who is incidentally his new best friend!
