Kareena, who was finalised opposite Hrithik, also left the project. Reportedly, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone were also offered the movie but they are now working on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Bajirao Mastani'.
There were rumours that Salman Khan and Kareena would be part of the film but the 33-year-old actress has rubbished such reports. "Will Salman be part of 'Shuddhi'? It is all created by you all (media). 'Shuddhi' is shelved.
Karan is working on 'The Warrior' remake I think with Siddharth Malhotra and Akshay Kumar... this is what Karan said. It (shooting) will start in August," Kareena told reporters here.
The actress is at Ramoji Film City to shoot for Rohit Shetty's next 'Singham Returns', which also stars Ajay Devgn. Kareena said she shares a good bond with Johar, contrary to reports that all is not well between them.
"Karan and we meet often. He loves to party. He is a very good friend. He is a brother to me and we share a deep bond. He is somebody who can be there for you," Kareena said.
