According to a source, Karan Johar who recently finalised sizzling Deepika for the movie Shuddhi, has now chosen current favourite Ranveer Singh in the male lead for the film. "I cannot let a vision like Shuddhi stagnate any further," said Karan Johar in a statement.
The source further informed that Ranveer expressed consent to do the film and will soon have final talks regarding the project with Karan Johar.
It is to mention, initially it was Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor who were chosen for the movie Shuddhi but later both the stars opted out of the project and hence, Ranveer and Deepika have now been fitted in the slots.
However, Ranveer has also been casted for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming movie Bajirao Mastani and it may be hard for the actor to cope up both the projects. But the source added, "It's not a problem as Bhansali's movie is not going to start before March 2015."
After Hrithik's opting out of the movie Shuddhi, there came up many names including Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan but it seems it is Ranveer who will finally bag the deal. The movie is expected to get released on beginning of 2015.
