Here is big news of the day. Salman Khan will not feature in the upcoming biggie Shhuddhi anymore now. In fact he is replaced by Varun Dhawan as lead actor in the film. Alia Bhatt will play the lead actress role in the film. Reason for Salman not in the film is not yet known. But speculation is that Salman Khan is currently much busy with Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, hence may not start shooting of Shhuddhi very soon. Plus his court cases trials are also using lots of his dates. Shhuddhi is already delayed a lot and this might be mutual decision between Salman and Karan Johar it seems. Even Salman Khan has wished and blessed Varun Dhawan for Shhuddhi.

Shhuddhi was first starred Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. However things didn't fall in line and Salman Khan come on board. He liked the script and confirmed himself that he is doing Shhuddhi. However due to reason unknown last night all sources after some kind of meeting confirmed that Shhuddhi will star Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. Director Karan Malhotra will start immediately shooting of Shhuddhi as early as after the completion of Brothers. Both Varun and Alia will start for 3rd time in a film together after SOTY and HSKD. Same goes for Karan Johar and Karan Malhotra as it will be their 3rd collaboration after Agneepath and Brothers.
