Varun Dhawan is currently busy shooting for ‘Dilwale’, directed by Rohit Shetty. However, he was announced to be male lead in Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’. Interestingly, as the rumour mills suggested that the film might be shelved, Dhawan has made a statement suggesting it is definitely facing considerable delay if it will still be made.
According to Hindustan Times, Dhawan revealed, “I don’t know why people assume it’s delayed, but I was never supposed to do Shuddhi this year. Karan will decide when we start shooting for the film. I need to give one whole year to the film and it’s definitely not happening in 2016”.
Alia Bhatt is paired opposite Varun Dhawan in Shuddhi. It will be third time that they are sharing screen space together after Student of The Year and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.
Varun Dhawan has also Dishoom in his kitty while Alia Bhatt's plate is also full with multiple films. After the debacle of Brothers, it seems that Shuddhi is not happening soon.
