After Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh roped in for Karan Johar’s Shuddhi?

Roshan Jr’s health issues and professional commitments had delayed Shuddhi, so much that the film had a complete makeover

Deepika Padukone stepped into Kareena Kapoor Khan role in Shuddhi after the latter opted out of the film. Now we hear Deepika’s alleged beau Ranveer Singh has been roped in to play the part that was to be originally portrayed by Hrithik Roshan. This is after reports suggested that Hrithik might just be back on the movie that he had politely turned down after much delay. Looks like we will get to watch the Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela jodi back onscreen together soon. HR’s loss has certainly proved to be Mr Singh’s gain, however we wonder if Dippy would have been happier to share screen space with Hrithik.

Remember not so long ago Ms Padukone had a wishlist of heroes she wants to work with that included names of Salman Khan (her current favourite c0-star Shahrukh Khan’s arch rival), Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan and of course the original hero of Shuddhi – Hrithik Roshan. With Roshan opting out of the film and boyfriend Ranveer playing this part, wethinks this might just be a bitter sweet moment for the leggy lass. While her dream to work with HR is yet to come true, we’re sure she wouldn’t mind some fun and quality time with her BF on the sets of their movie. Also considering that Padukone gal was willing to turn assistant director to Zoya Akhtar for her next film with Ranveer, KJo’s offer might just help the busy lovers spend some time with each other, hai na?

With one hit film under their belt looks like this new hit jodi of B-town might bag another movie together. Going by the current buzz Ranveer – Deepika might be cast as the lead pair in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next Bajirao Mastani. Not to forget, the duo will be sharing screen space in Homi Adajania’s Finding Fanny Fernandes.

While we are happy to see the reel life lovers together on reel, BollywoodLifers you tell us – do you think Ranveer Singh is the perfect replacement for Hrithik Roshan in Shuddhi?
