After the success of ‘Agneepath’ featuring Hrithik Roshan in the lead, director Karan Malhotra had ambitious plans for his film ‘Shhuddhi’.
The film was first planned with Hrithik in the lead, but the superstar opted out of it and gave the green-signal to Ashutosh Gowariker’s ‘Mohenjo Daro’.
After Hrithik, Dharma Productions’ announced that the film would feature Salman Khan in the lead. But Salman too opted out of it.
Finally, producer Karan Johar announced that the film would star Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt – the actors he launched in Student Of The Year.
The project was expected to go on the floors, until ‘Brothers’ bombed at the box office.
Now, sources say, the film has been postponed indefinitely “Karan Malhotra has kept the script aside and it is unlikely that he will make the film anytime soon. As of today, the film is not even discussed in the meetings at the Dharma office. In fact, Malhotra is developing another script under the same banner” a source close to the director said.
