Mumbai: Actress Deepika Padukone has denied reports that she was approached for Karan Johar’s much-discussed project Shuddhi but said she was willing to do the film if offered.
“I haven’t been approached for the film yet. I don’t know if they [makers] know what is happening with the film,” Padukone said at an event.
“At the point when Hrithik [Roshan] was doing it, I would have definitely been interested in doing it. Now that he is not doing it, I don’t know what is happening with the project,” she said.
The upcoming film under Johar’s home production is getting delayed over its casting.
Earlier, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Roshan were to star in the film, but Roshan’s illness delayed the project, forcing the actor to opt out.
It is also not clear whether Khan is still a part of the movie.
When asked if she would do the role if approached, Padukone replied in the affirmative.
“Yes I would do it, why not? If Karan thinks I would do justice to it, then I will do it. Though Hrithik is not doing the film, I would be okay to do the film with any other co-star. It all depends on what they plan to do with the project,” she added.
The film will be directed by Karan Malhotra of Agneepath fame.
