Actor Varun Dhawan, who will be seen in double role in ‘Judwaa 2’ said that superstar Salman Khan has advised him not to be over smart and listen to the instructions given by the director. The movie is the sequel of ‘Judwaa’ that portrayed Salman in the lead.
The actor revealed that the character of Raja in the film will be different from the prequel. He has started the shooting for the film that will be directed by his father and filmmaker David Dhawan.
"The only advise Salman Khan has given me for 'Judwaa 2' is that, 'listen to your dad (director David Dhawan) and don't be over smart'," Varun told PTI.
The 29-year-actor actor says he was a kid when "Judwaa" released in 1997 and remembers his first meeting with Salman at a special screening of the film.
"I just remember watching 'Judwaa' in theatre during a special screening and meeting Salman Khan for the first time. I don't remember much as I was small."
In "Judwaa", Salman played double role as Prem, the naive guy, while Raja, who was the street smart chap. In the second installment that is being made almost after two decade, Varun will be seen as the 'new-age tapori'.
"It is sad that we don't make films on taporis anymore. There will be a big change in the character of Raja in the sequel. But I would not like to speak much about it. It is far different from what Salman did in the first film," Varun says.
Except actress Rambha, all lead actors of the original comic caper will be seen in cameo in the sequel.
"I cannot say anything about it right now because I want people to be surprised, especially by Salman Khan's character in the film ('Judwaa 2')," he says.
Beside "Judwaa 2", Varun will be collaborating with filmmaker Shoojit Sircar for the first time.
"There is something that he has narrated to me which I really liked. I wanted to work with Shoojit Sircar ever since I watched 'Vicky Donor'. I will start shooting for the film after 'Judwaa 2' and it is a love story," he says.
