Varun Dhawan is all set to step into Salman Khan’s shoes, in order to replicate his character from David Dhawan’s 1997 comedy film ‘Judwaa’.
The movie, which will feature Varun in the lead role, showed Salman Khan in a double role in the earlier version.
Varun said at an event that Salman gave him advice regarding the remake, saying that the young actor should listen to his father (David Dhawan). Varun further said that Salman advised him not to be over smart, according to Indian media reports. Varun added that he can’t reveal much about the film before time, and his character will be different than what Salman did in the first film.
In the movie, original cast members Salman Khan and Karisma Kapoor will also make a cameo appearance. Judwaa 2 will feature Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez as female leads. The first look of the film was released a few weeks back, and fans totally loved it. Majority found the geeky avatar of Varun to be very cute.
There are rumours that Salman Khan and Karisma Kapoor will reprise their roles from the original for a cameo in Judwaa 2. Back in February when Varun was asked if he will be sharing screen space with Salman in the film, Varun said, “I hope so, maine kabhi screen space share nahi kiya Salman bhai ke saath. Bht interesting baat mei aapko batata hoon. Shooting shuru hone se ek din pehle Salman bhai ne mere ghar par ek carton bheja tha of jeans for Raja’s character. And he said ‘I think all these jeans will go with your character, so I am trying to use his jeans in the film.”
