Within an exclusive interview with Filmfare, Varun Dhawan spilled some coffee beans on might know about and shouldn’t expect from the film. Here runs…
How can it feel moving into Salman Khan’s shoes in Judwaa 2?
Judwaa 2 is a fresh storyline about two brothers. I don’t want to match the impact that Salman Bhai, Sajid sir (Nadiadwala) and my father created in the first one. I simply want to provide the people a fresh experience. It’s funny that on the first day of shooting several youngsters had seriously the set. I asked them if indeed they possessed seen Judwaa plus some replied, “Yes on Television set.” Those that haven’t observed it, it’ll be a brand-new film to them. I’m looking to create newer nuances. Definitely, there will be references to the sooner film, to Salman Bhai and the character types, Prem, and Raja. But we’re aiming to do new stuff as well. We’ve maintained the two struck melodies – Oonchi hai building and Tan tana tan tantara… from the initial film.
You’re touted as the Salman Khan of today’s era. Would it flatter you?
Truthfully, I don’t dwell on it. Actually, this perception happened when I began my profession. Whatever said, I have to work hard still, I still have to set up work. People can say lots of things but deep down inside you understand what’s true and what’s not. You ought never to lose emphasis.
Any Salman Khan thoughts?
A complete whole lot of these. I remember through the screening of Judwaa, I called him ‘uncle’. He said, ‘I’ll rape you if you call me uncle’. (Laughs) Do you know what! He’s just directed me a suitcase packed with denim jeans for Raja’s persona in Judwaa 2. Bhai is pleased with whatever I’ve done. He says I’m somewhat too enthusiastic on display and asks me to relax. He’s someone I could go to whenever I want any help.
