Just a few days back, Salman Khan took everyone by surprise when he announced on Twitter that Varun Dhawan has replaced him in Karan Johar’s ambitious project Shhuddhi. After couple of minutes, the Dharma head honcho himself confirmed this news on social media and also revealed that Alia Bhatt will be playing the female lead in his film which is expected to come out during Diwali next year. This news certainly became the talk of the town as Shhuddhi’s star cast changed yet again. While everyone was super kicked about Johar and Bhai’s collaboration, things didn’t work out between the two. So now Jr Dhawan and Alia will instead star in much-awaited Shhuddhi. Well, this the third time that the Udta Punjab actress will be starring opposite VD and she is obviously looking forward to it.
While talking about Shhuddhi for the first time, Mahesh Bhatt’s beti said to a leading website, “Yes, I’m doing Shhuddhi. But all that has been decided so far is that Varun (Dhawan) and me will be in it. All other details including shooting dates are yet to be worked out.”
The Shaandaar heroine also spoke about her co-star Varun and said, “We started together in Student Of The Year and we’ve done two films together so far. Shhuddhi will be our third film together. He’s my buddy and we share a terrific bonding. We know exactly what the other is going to do in a scene.”
Ahem Ahem, now that certainly says a lot about the comfort level these two actors share, no? Well, good for KJo because we won’t have to work hard to get the best out of his lead actors!
