Varun Dhawan, Parineeti Chopra pair up for ‘Judwaa 2’


Parineeti Chopra and Varun Dhawan have been locked for the sequel to the rom-com film, ‘Judwaa’. The sequel ‘Judwaa 2’ will see Varun Dhawan and Parineeti Chopra working opposite each other for the first time.

A source was quoted as saying, “The makers wanted two top actresses from the young generation to be paired opposite Varun. And they wanted two heroines who he’s never been paired with. One could argue that Jacqueline and Varun worked together in Dishoom, but the fact is they were not paired together. She was John’s romantic interest in the action-adventure saga. As for Parineeti, the duo appeared together in multiple ads and the hot Jaaneman Aah song which set the ball rolling. So both are the best bets”.

“Pari’s date diary is full as she has a lot of films coming up. She has liked the idea, but both the heroines will sit for a complete narration once the script is ready, which will take a few more weeks”, the source added.

The original film ‘Judwaa’ starred superstar Salman Khan along with two actresses Karisma Kapoor and Rambha. The sequel will mark Varun’s first-ever double role in his acting career of three years. The film will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The movie is likely to hit floors before March 2017.

On the work front, Parineeti is busy with ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ starring Ayushmaan Khurrana and Varun who was last seen in ‘Dishoom’ is working on ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ with Alia Bhatt.
