Hrithik Roshan opts out of Shuddhi

Shuddhi, directed by Karan Malhotra, was one of the most ambitious projects of Dharma Productions and was one of the most awaited films since it starred Hrithik and Kareena together after almost a decade. However, owing to Hrithik’s health issues, the film shooting schedule was postponed.

While recently Kareena hinted on opting out of the film, it is now Hrithik Roshan who has decided to quit the film. Talking about his exit, the actor released a statement recently saying, “Karan Malhotra and I have decided to unite in the most ambitious way post Shuddhi. For now I cannot allow a vision like Shuddhi to stagnate any further. I had the finest experience as an actor while working with Karan Malhotra in Agneepath and I’m sure both my dear Karans are going to go beyond with this one! Shuddhi remains a part of me in spirit & am sure it will be a landmark in our cinema. I wish them all the best!”

Currently, though rumours of Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor replacing the actor are doing the rounds along with Deepika Padukone being roped in as the new actress, nothing has been finalized.
