Did Salman Khan choose YRF over Karan Johar?
Salman Khan has supposedly allotted his dates to YRF's 'Sultan' opposite Deepika Padukone, and will take up Karan Johar's 'Shuddhi' later
If sources are to be believed, Salman Khan will move to the sets of Yash Raj’s Sultan after wrapping up Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the unit of which will shortly leave for a schedule in the Kashmir Valley. Earlier, there were rumours that the star would take up Karan Johar’s long-in-the-planning Shuddhi first.

A source says, “Shuddhi has already been delayed due to a few changes in the cast. Now, it has been postponed further as Salman will shoot for Sultan after completing Kabir Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan.”
The source adds that Salman’s leading lady in Sultan, Deepika Padukone, will shortly take up promotions of Piku as well as finish work on an ongoing period romance. After that, both the actors will start shooting for their maiden outing together.
Sultan director Ali Abbas Zafar says, “We will have some clarity about his dates in a month or so once he is done with Bajrangi Bhaijaan.”
KJo, on the other hand, had apparently planned to start shooting for Shuddhi by July-August and is still scouting for a younger heroine opposite Salman. “Though the girl has not been finalised, he wanted to shoot a few portions with the actor. But it looks like he will have to wait further,” an insider says.
