Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh not in Shuddhi, clarifies Karan Johar

The Student Of The Year director has revealed that Ranveer and Deepika are not finalised for his upcoming venture, Shuddhi

There has been a lot of suspense as far as casting of Karan Johar’s Shuddhi is concerned. After Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor walked out of this most talked about project, the media circuit was abuzz with rumours that Ram-Leela co-stars and alleged lovebirds – Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have been roped in to play the lead roles in the film. However, as per the latest buzz, Deepika and Ranveer are not a part of Shuddhi, which will be directed by Karan Malhotra.

Recently the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai director was at the trailer launch of Chetan Bhagat’s filmi version of 2 States (starring Alia Bhatta and Arjun Kapoor), where he was asked if Ranveer and Deepika would be doing Shuddhi. “No they are not finalised,” KJo replied without divulging any further details.

A few days earlier, Karan had announced that Shuddhi, which has been on hold for more than a year will finally release in 2015 and that the star cast of the film will be finalised by next month.

Looks like all we can do is just wait for an official statement from the Koffee with Karan host himself. Or we can continue to play the guessing game. What say peeps?
