Finally the cast of Shuddhi has been finalised. After much controversies, Karan Johar found a lead role for his dream project, Shuddhi which was apparently shelved as the filmmaker was not getting the perfect cast.

Salman Khan has bagged Shuddhi and in an interview recently, Salman accepted to have signed Karan Johar's dream project, Shuddhi. Of late, Shuddhi has been in the news for its star cast issues. Karan Johar's first choice was Hrithik Roshan who would have suited the role perfectly. However, due to health issues, Hrithik had to turn the offer down. This made Kareena Kapoor also leave Karan's project. In an interview some time back, Kareena said that Shuddhi has been shelved and Karan Johar is working on some other movie which is a remake of a Hollywood film.
