"There are a lot of things that are new in this film ('Shuddhi') . There is a rumour that it is based on Meluha ... Shiva and all that... but is not true... The film is on a completely different subject," Varun said.

Earlier, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan were supposed to star in the movie but later Salman Khan was roped in. But Karan Johar last month announced that he has finalised Varun and Alia Bhatt for the lead pair in the film, which will be directed by Karan Malhotra of "Agneepath" fame.

"With 'Shuddhi' lot of people have said a lot of things.. I don't want to say anything. An actor's job is to act and I will just do things to the best of my ability... Then people have to decide how Alia and me have performed and whether they liked us or not," Varun said in an interview.

'Shuddhi' is expected to hit theaters during Diwali next year. Reportedly Salman, who is known to support and motivate young talent suggested Varun's name for 'Shuddhi'.

As of now, Varun is looking forward to the release of Remo D'Souza's 'ABCD 2'. The film starring Prabhudheva and Shraddha Kapoor besides him. It releases on June 19.
