Mirror had earlier reported that Salman Khan, who played the twin leads of Raja and Prem in David Dhawan’s 1997 comedy ‘Judwaa’, is set to make a guest appearance in the Varun Dhwan-starrer sequel. “Salman is all heart. When we need him, he’ll be there,” Dhawan Sr had told Mirror. Now, we hear that the film’s team is planning to get the actor to be a part of one of the two songs from the original that have been recreated for ‘Judwaa 2’, “Oonchi Hai Building” and “Tan Tana Tan”.
A source associated with the film reveals, “The plan is to give fans of the original a moment of nostalgia by showing him groove to his own song, but it’s yet to be decided which of the two songs he will appear in.The number will also feature the new leads, Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu. The songs will be filmed in a Mumbai studio once Varun and Taapsee are done with the upcoming 40-day UK schedule in April.”
Varun Dhawan told Mirror, “It’s a surprise, let it remain a surprise. People will be happy with it. All I can say is we are working on it. We are all aware it’s a big responsibility and we will try and do our best.”
About teaming up with his father again after the 2014-film ‘Main Tera Hero’, the actor said, “My father, didn’t launch me because he’s never launched anybody and he wouldn’t make an exception for me. He only took me ( in ‘Main Tera Hero’) after my first film did well and he’s only making another film with me now after eight of my films have done well. That’s how my family thinks. I have seen the ups and downs my father went through in his career while I was growing up, I respect that.”
Varun had kicked off the shooting for the Sajid Nadiadwala’s production in February, at a Mumbai studio by filming a Ganpati song that will be the film’s opening number, introducing his tapori character.
