Bollywood is one it heels the moment the news broke out the Shahrukh Khan might step in as the lead actor of Shuddhi, which was vacated by Hrithi Roshan. The whispers started doing the rounds when Karan Johar tweeted that the film will release on Christmas 2015.
Karan Johar was very clear that after Hrithik had dropped out of the movie, the film needed a superstar. All the new actors are not in the reckoning. Which led to the speculation that Dharma’s favourite SRK might be returning to the production house.
Says an industry insider, “Shahrukh came with Chennai Express in Eid, (considered Salman Khan’s date) and broke records. Now if he has a release on X’Mas (which belongs to Aamir Khan) and shatter box-office figures, it will be the ultimate high. Even though Aamir has not made an announcement yet for December 2015, he has released his last three films have released on that date.”
If Shahrukh Khan agrees to do the film, he will be making a comeback to Dharma after a span of 4 years, previous flick being My Name Is Khan! This time though, Karan will limit himself to only producing the movie. The part of the leading lady belongs to Deepika Padukone. Her name was being tossed around even when Kareena Kapoor Khan was the official heroine, before she stepped out.
