There have been many speculations about who will be casted for the upcoming movie Shuddhi since Hrithik Roshan's opting out of the project. Although, Ranveer Singh's name was always the first for Shuddhi, according to a source the actor has ended up the buzz and decided to go for Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani.
Bhansali casted Ranveer previously for his latest hit Ram Leela which actually made Ranveer the current favourite and thus, the actor has again chosen his erstwhile director over Karan Johar.
Although, Ranveer was eager to work for both the directors, but as Shuddhi and Bajirao Mastani are to roll down at the same time, the star had no option other than choosing either of the two. And as Bhansali approached Ranveer first and also the actor already worked with Bhansali in Ram Leela, Ranveer decided to be the 'Bajirao' for Bhansali.
Some times back, it was reported that Karan Johar finalised Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone for his upcoming flick Shuddhi but now with this new update, Karan might have to re-start his hunt for Shuddhi's casting.
