Mumbai: Karan Johar’s ambitious project- ‘Shhuddhi’- has been in news ever since its inception.
However, the producer-director wasn’t finding his male lead. After Hrithik Roshan chose to de-board the project, KJo was left to wonder as to whom to approach for the same. Names such as Ranveer Singh, Tiger Shroff had cropped up.
But now, ‘Dabangg’ superstar Salman Khan has decided to do the film. The hunk of an actor has been signed by Karan for the project which was in trouble over the absence of an anchor.
Karan took to Twittter to confirm the news.
