The real reason why Hrithik Roshan walked out of Karan Johar’s Shuddhi – Find out!

Reports suggested Hrithik walked out of KJo’s magnum opus due to health reasons, however grapevine says something else

Not too long ago, Hrithik Roshan walked out from Karan Johar’s ambitious project Shuddhi, as the Greek God didn’t want to delay the project any further. While many suggested that the reason for Hrithik’s ouster was his ill health, that wasn’t the only reason, it seems. From what we hear, Roshan Jr was not quite happy with the profit-sharing deal between him and Karan Johar. Well, as a very smart person once rightly said, “The lack of money is the root of all evil.”

So how much percent of the total profit was HR eyeing for? “Hrithik had asked for 40 per cent of the film’s total profit. But Karan Johar didn’t agree to this. This prompted Hrithik to opt out of Shuddhi,” a source was quoted by a tabloid. Ah, well!

Anyway, KJo’s dream project has already faced many hurdles as far as the star cast is concerned. Earlier, Hrithik and Kareena Kapoor Khan were signed to play the lead roles in the film, which was announced over a year ago. But then Bebo walked out of the film, and soon after that her once alleged lover Hrithik too quit the project, for the reason we already told you above. Ever since then, various names have been doing the rounds to play the lead roles in the film. However, Karan hasn’t finalised any names yet. The Koffee with Karan host still maintains that Shuddhi, which will be directed by Karan Malhotra will hit the theatres next year. Will it or will it not? Well, all we can do is just wait and watch, hai na?Subscribe to me on YouTube

      As time passes he will slowly deal with Sussane’s leaving>he has a fantastic fan base that is helping him to heal>he has a close group of friends who care for him>and right now WORK will help him deal with the fallout. Sussanne should not have left him so soon after his surgery>she parties like an immature teenager, getting drunk, with some reports coming from credible sources she does drugs>makes me wonder if she ever really cared for him. O_O

    If true, Roshan’s star power alone would have been worth paying the 40%> with Hrithik as the lead actor Shuddhi would have made buckets of money>enough to make both camps happy. I guess Karan didn’t think about that! Now he’s having trouble finding an actor worthy of the role that requires intensity & physical presence. Johar has to realise that most directors/producers would chop off their right arm to have Roshan front and center in their projects>this is a man who is at the top of his game and can literally name his own price. Well Karen, you might have to step down from that high horse of yours and have a serious re-think about asking Roshan to re-consider>come on lad, I know you can do it! :D

      U said what my heart says. 100% Agreed

  • QueTuffBaby

    I thought Mr. Karan would be wiser,or at least I thought he was…

  • Sanjay Kumar

    Hrithik deserves even 60% sharing because film would have run at 100% occupancy rate and may have smashed all box office records for sure.

    According to Karan Johar the story is totally untrue>> I can’t help feeling that these rumors targeting Hrithik are designed to punish him for abandoning Shuddhi>no wonder he prefers working with Rakesh when this sort of crap goes on behind his back. If I have any advice to give Johar is would be this: Stop with the politicking regarding your projects and deal with your acting friends in an open and honest manner>you would be amazed how much respect you would get if you did that>stop playing one actor off against the other and just get Shuddhi up and running>you know that the role requires an actor that has the intensity and physical attributes to pull it off>just get on with it, because the cinema going public will rapidly lose interest.
