Shuddhi cast and crew changes do not trouble Alia Bhatt

Karan Johar’s much talked about project Shuddhi has underwent a lot of changes in its cast and crew. The director fluctuated from Kareena Kapoor to Hrithik Roshan to Salman Khan, and finally ended his quest on Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan. The movie had been doing the rounds for its casting tweaks but finally Karan was successful in taking the Highway actress and Varun Dhawan as the main lead of the movie. The project was announced in early 2014. Shuddhi will be produced by Karan Johar and directed by Karan Malhotra. Before casting Alia and Varun, Karan had paired Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik as the lead pair. It was Hrithik who derailed due to his health issues and consequently Kareena also walked out. Alia said in an interview, “I feel pressure before every film whether it’s big or small. I don’t feel like I should take anything for granted. There is pressure but it is good pressure. I am not feeling bogged down. I am excited about the film and I want to put up a great show.” It is for the third time that the actors would be teaming up together after doing hits like “Student of the Year” and “Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya”.



Alia agreed to do the film since it is her mentor Karan who is directing the film. He has been a father figure to her and that is why she agreed to do the film when everyone parted ways with the director. Alia says that whether they work on a film together or any other project it is so much fun with the director. Alia takes huge poud and proclaims that all films till date of which she has been a part of, have been hits and she is glad with the success each of her projects. But the actress is not sitting neither taking a backseat and relaxing that she has achieved something. Alia feels she has a long way to go. Since there are a lot of newcomers and even established actresses around, Alia believes in the theory of Survival of the Fittest and thinks that competition is important.

Apart from this project, Alia is busy shooting for her next project with Shahid Kapoor that would release by the end of this year. The actress feels that competition is very important. She said, “I don’t think anyone is looking at it like a race or people are running to win a first prize. Everybody wants to do very well. I feel the opportunities have become very diverse as more and more directors, writers, producers are coming up with new and exciting content.” Alia is all set to be starred opposite Shahid Kapoor in their upcoming movie “Shandaar” that releases in October this year. Apart from these projects, she is also shooting for “Kapoor and Sons” wherein she is paired alongside Siddharth Malhotra.

Salman Khan leaves Shuddhi movie because of his court case and prior commitments

Salman Khan has been facing some trouble lately. Most of the trouble our Salman Khan the Bajrangi Bhaijaan has been facing is on the accounts of the court cases he had to face for events that happened in the past. Salman was recently called to Mumbai and had to leave all his work to participate in the hearing of the hit and run case where Salman Khan was accused of drunk driving and hitting an innocent man with his car and then fleeing away from the crime scene.

The court hearings and other formalities consumed some time which has proved bad for the actor as a lot of money of the Bollywood industry and of many brands was lying on him and the amount was no less than around 200 crores including the movies Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which are supposed to release this year.



Some effects could be seen on Salman Khan's projects that have not been started yet - like Shuddhi. Shuddhi movie's lead actor was finalized as Salman Khan after a lot of actors and actresses refused to do the movie and Salman Khan had this movie planned and would have started the shooting for this movie after the completion of Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

But, looks like things didn't work well and Salman had to leave Shuddhi movie without even starting it. Some reports also say that this might have something to do with the AIB roast which was not taken in good light by Salman Khan and it could be that he has refused to do Karan Johar's movie because of that incidence as Salman's younger sister Arpita Khan was also mad a target in that event and was unnecessarily made fun of.

Well, whatever may be the reason, the final outcome is that now Salman Khan is not doing the movie. We wish Karan Johar all the very best for his upcoming venture Shuddhi and Salman Khan for his upcoming movies.

Jacqueline is busy these days finalising her dates for the movie. 'Shuddhi' has survived to be in news for a long time now. It had grabbed eyeballs for the first time when it was rumoured to be a replica of the Amish Tripathi's famous book from the Shiva Trilogy, 'Immortals of Meluha.' Later, these reports were negated by Karan Johar and it was believed that Hrithik Roshan was roped in to play the main role. This did not work out well again and the film landed in trouble. Finally, Hrithik ousted himself of the film and Salman Khan was roped in to play the lead.

The film will be a Diwali release in 2016. Sanjay Dutt too will be seen in the film after a long time. And if reports are to be believed, Sanjay Dutt will be seen in the negative shade in the film.
