Varun Dhawan takes over from Salman Khan in the remake of 1997 film Judwaa, which was directed by David Dhawan.
Actor Varun Dhawan unveiled the first look of his upcoming film ‘Judwaa 2’, a revamped version of Salman Khan’s hit film Judwaa, which released in 1997. The film’s principle cast has been redone but David Dhawan reprises his role as the film’s director. Hours after the film’s first look was released, David Dhawan told news agency IANS that no one can replace Salman Khan. Varun will step into Salman’s shoes. There is one Salman Khan and there is no replacement. He is an unpredictable actor..You don’t know what he will do. Once the camera is on he is something else only, “said David Dhawan at a press conference reported IANS.
Raja and Prem (both played by Salman Khan) were separated soon after their birth and were reunited in their youth. Both have distinct personalities-Raja was street-smart while Prem was the obedient son. Actreeses Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu will take over from Karishma Kapoor and Rambha in the film.
David Dhawan told reporters that though much of the plot of Judwaa 2 will be the same, there are some changes they’ve made in the story. He said: “We have made changes to the original story. We can’t share details,” reported IANS. Fans can rejoice as the films two popular songs- Chalti Hai Kya Nau Se Barah and Oonchi Hai Building- have been kept by the makers.
Produced by Sajid Nadiawala, the sequel is set to release on September 29. Before Judwaa 2, Varun will be seen in Badrinath Ki Dulhania opposite Alia Bhatt.
Prem and Raja are back but this time they don’t have’s swag, instead they have ’s goofy charm. The first poster of Judwaa 2 was released on Tuesday morning and it has Varun Dhawan, wait make it plural, in the lead. So, as Prem, we have Varun in suit and a rather quizzical look in his face. As Raja, Varun has six-pack abs, long hair and a come-hither look on his face. Going by Salman-starrer Judwaa, we know one is a straight-laced man caught in a difficult situation while the other is the rogue charmer who is the reason behind former’s difficulties. But together, they are two much fun.
