Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan says he was “thrown out of” Karan Johar’s production “Shuddhi”.

Earlier, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan were supposed to star in the movie, but later Salman was roped in. Actor Varun Dhawan has now been locked in place of the “Dabangg” star.

The actor talked about “Shuddhi” after launching the trailer of his film “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, which also stars Kareena, here on Thursday. 

“I was thrown out of the film, why are you out of the film?” Salman said while questioning Kareena about her reason for not doing “Shuddhi”. 

“I agreed because Hrithik was in the film. And eventually he didn’t do the film,” said Kareena. 

The 49-year-old actor also noted that Kareena had already opted out of the film when he agreed to do the film. “Shuddhi”, being helmed by Karan Malhotra, also stars Alia Bhatt. 

Meanwhile, Salman is also gearing up for Sooraj Barjatya’s “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”.
