Hrithik Roshan in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film ‘Shuddhi’. The Film is an Official Adaptation of Amish Tripathi’s Book Immortals of Meluha. Read Full Details.
The Cast has Gone from Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan to Tiger Shroff when it was supposed to be produced by Karan Johar and directed by Karan Malhotra. But then Karan Malhotra’s Brothers bombed and the prospects of the film nosedived completely. It was shelved in 2016 itself although numerous rumors start floating every couple of months that the film might be rechristened.
The recent media reports confirmed that the adaptation rights have changed hands, from Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s banner SLB Films. Even Amish Tripathi confirmed couple of months back that Dharma Productions no longer holds the rights and a new production house has acquired the rights. He had also said it at that point in time that the film will be announced official with a fresh star cast
As per the latest report in leading daily Mumbai Mirror, it has emerged that Hrithik Roshan has been approached to play Lord Shiva in the film. No Official Confirmation regarding this.
When Mumbai Mirror reached out to SLB, the filmmaker chose not to comment, while Amish Tripathi apologetically excused himself insisting he could speak about anything else but this.
Hrithik Roshan hasn’t confirmed any film post the release of Kaabil barring Krrish 4. Krrish 4 is still in scripting stage. The film where he is in advanced talks of signing is Vikash Bahl’s Math Wizar Aanand Kumar Biopic titled Super 30 but even that hasn’t been officially confirmed. Other rumored films include Kabir Khan’s next and Sanjay Gupta’s next film. Official Confirmation Awaited.
