The first look of Judwaa 2, featuring Varun Dhawan, is out and it looks good, but will it match the success of the original, starring Salman Khan?
Varun Dhawan is playing the lead in Judwaa 2, the sequel of Salman Khan’s 1997 comedy Judwaa. Judwaa 2 will feature Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez. Even Salman Khan is expected to do a cameo in the David Dhawan-directed movie (he directed the original version of the movie as well).
The filmmakers have decided to recreate a couple of songs from the first Judwaa, including the hit number “Oonchi Hai Building” (composed by Anu Malik). You can see Varun Dhawan and Tapsee Pannu rehearsing the steps of the song.

“Just a day before the shoot started, I received a carton full of Salman bhai’s jeans. He later called to say the pants will match my tapori character. It was a sweet gesture,” says Varun.
“Salman bhai was standing outside [the set], wearing a ganjee and shorts. And I addressed him as Salman uncle. He said, ‘I will slap you if you call me that. Call me bhai or else I won’t allow you inside’,” says Varun.
The original Judwaa was a blockbuster, but back then, Salman was not as big as he is today. Lot of the credit for the success of the original version also goes to David Dhawan and to the peppy music.
So will the sequel be able to match up to the original? Lets hope so!
