Will Madhuri Dixit Replace Late Sridevi in Karan Johar’s ‘Shiddat’?

Sridevi’s sudden demise not only shocked Bollywood and fans but it also put a few projects on hold. We are talking about ‘Shiddat’, the upcoming film of Dharma Productions. As the last rituals of Sridevi’s departure are now over, the news of Madhuri Dixit taking over late Sridevi’s role in ‘Shiddat’ is going viral.

According to a leading daily, the ‘Dhak Dhak’ girl has been approached by the production house for the role and she has already given her approval for it. Madhuri thinks that it would be a good opportunity for her to pay the tribute to the legendary actress.

However, a few sources also claim that since Karan Johar is very close to Kapoor family, he is very sensitive to the selection. Moreover, he is not in the country and has not confirmed about the replacement.

The shooting of this multi-starrer cross-border period drama was to hit the floors in a month or two. But because of Sridevi’s sudden demise, Karan Johar has decided to shelve the project.

‘Shiddat’ will also feature Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur as the tantalizing lead cast of the film. It will be directed by Abhishek Verman of ‘2 States’ fame.

Ajay Devgan wants no compromise for ‘Taanaji’

After ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Padmavat’, the cinema world will witness another biopic. This time it is the legendary Taanaji, one of the Subedars from the army of Chatterpati Shivaji Maharaja who fought the battle of Sinhagad. It will feature Ajay Devgan as Taanaji. Ajay is also bankrolling the biopic and cleared that he didn’t want to lock any release date as it only adds pressure and could corner filmmakers into compromising with the vision and subject. As for this biopic, Ajay doesn’t want any compromise.

The actor is so passionate about the project that he wanted to bring a 3D version of the film and the news is that his own VFX Company, one of the best in the industry, has already started working on it. Moreover, the pre-production work is in full swing and the shooting is likely to start in September.

However, after the controversy created over ‘Padmavat’, the producer is a bit tensed and is ensuring that the script is authentic. Moreover, he is also concerned that it doesn’t hurt the feelings of anyone from Marathas to Rajputs.  “If one is willing to sit across the table and discuss concerns, both parties can arrive at a solution. Nobody likes to be associated with controversies, and it isn’t a good situation that the industry finds itself in, but such matters can be handled,” said Ajay.

Co-produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, the film is directed by Om Raut who is known for his directorial such as ‘Lokmanya Ek Yugpurush” (2015) and the Marathi biopic on Bal Gangadhar Tilak.

Rupee is also expected to visit India around the same time. The release of the video is expected to be on 26 June on Spinnin’ TV”,,” said Zaeden.

Rupee is still humbled by the success of this song and said “It has become an immortal classic.

After a lot of hard work from both the parties, we are blessed to have finally reached a destination of incredible musical ingredients, added to a working formula.”

And that is reflective in this classic remake which made it an obvious choice to want to collaborate on the video with him and his team.
