Hrithik walks out of Karan Johar's Shuddhi



Get your lowdown on what's going on in the world of Bollywood, right here!

Hrithik Roshan has opted out of Karan Johar's upcoming film Shuddhi, saying he does not want to delay the project.

The film was slated to reunite Roshan with his Agneepath director Karan Malhotra and his former co-star Kareena Kapoor but the actor's health and subsequent separation from wife Sussanne kept delaying the project.

'Karan Malhotra (director) and I have decided to unite in the most ambitious way post-Shuddhi. For now I cannot allow a vision like Shuddhi to stagnate any further. I had the finest experience an actor can have working with Karan Malhotra in Agneepath,' Hrithik said in a statement.

'I'm sure both my dear Karans (director Malhotra and producer Johar) are going to go beyond with this one. Shuddhi remains a part of me in spirit and I am sure it will be a landmark in our cinema. I wish them all the best,' he said.

There is a buzz that Kareena would also not be a part of the film, mainly due to date issues, as the film got postponed due to Hrithik's health.

There are reports that Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone might replace Hrithik and Kareena.

Ajay Devgn: No secret to successful marriage

Ajay Devgn, who has been married to actress Kajol for 15 years, says there is no secret mantra to a successful marriage.

The couple tied the knot in 1999 and are parents to daughter Nysa and son Yug.

"I think one just needs to be happy and keep the other person happy. There is no secret mantra to a successful marriage, you just have to give other person as much importance and respect all your life. One just has to believe in commitment and things go right," Ajay said.

Ajay does not believe Bollywood is a difficult place for marriages.

"It happens everywhere not just in this industry. I think it depends on people to people (how they work towards marriage)," he added.

Ajay will be seen in two masala entertainer films -- in Prabhu Dheva's Action Jackson and Rohit Shetty's Singham 2.

The shooting for Action Jackson is going on while the shoot for Singham 2 is yet to begin.

Amitabh Bachchan will shake a leg with composer-singer Honey Singh in a rap for the upcoming horror-comedy Bhootnath Returns.
The 30-year-old singer-composer has given popular tracks like Lungi Dance and Sunny Sunny.
Bhootnath Returns is a sequel to 2008 horror-comedy Bhootnath, which is being directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced by T-Series and BR Films.
"It's great to have Amitji and Honey Singh together in the song, Party with Bhootnath, which will be shot in the next few days. We're hoping to create a good chemistry between Honey Singh and the Big B.
"It's a lavishly set song that will be shot in a modern haveli resort and will involve a lot of special effects. We've requested Amitji to rap too. This will be one crazy number!" said Bhushan Kumar, producer of the sequel.
He said the resort where the shooting will begin is located in Raigad district, which will be converted into a ghost bungalow according to the theme of the movie. Over 100 dancers, including children, will also shake a leg with Bachchan, who plays a friendly ghost in the movie.
Earlier, Bachchan tweeted how he enjoyed dancing despite his age.
''Grooving and shakin' with the young at the shoot for 'Bhoothnath Returns'... At times the choreographer and the production forget how old I am to be still doing this stuff... But to be honest I did enjoy myself, despite the buckets of perspiration after each approaching summer heat filled shot,' Bachchan wrote.
