We were all shocked when Salman Khan announced one fine day that Varun Dhawan will be starring in ‘Shuddhi’ instead of him. While many Salman Khan fans were heartbroken, they took solace in the fact that it was Salman himself who recommended Varun for this meaty role. 

Now, many months later, Salman apparently wants his role back! News has it that Salman asked filmmaker Karan Johar to take him back in Shuddhi. Well, but it was all in jest. 
Salman Khan recently appeared on the TV reality dance show ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ along with his proteges Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty. Salman and the team of HERO had a blast on the sets with the team of JDJ. 

Salman, who is now good friends with celebrity judge of the show Karan Johar, began kidding with him. It was here that he apparently asked KJO to give him back ‘Shuddhi’. The duo laughed over it. They also got nostalgic recollecting their ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ days. 
Salman, who saw great success in his movie ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, will next be seen in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ opposite Sonam Kapoor.
