Deepika Padukone has stated that she would sign up for Karan Johar’s much talked about project Shuddhi if she was approached for the female lead. Shuddhi initially had Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan signed up for the roles. However, Hrithik has been forced to opt out due to illness and it is not clear whether Kareena will still be a part of the film. Speaking during a promotional event for Hewlett Packard, Deepika mentioned the following to the Indian press regarding the film. “I haven’t been approached for the film yet. I don’t know if they (makers) know what is happening with the film. At the point when Hrithik was doing it I would have definitely be interested in doing it. Now that he is not doing it, I don’t know what is happening with the project.”
