Well, Director David Dhavan has been contemplating the idea of making the sequel of his yesteryear superhit movie Judwaa. We heard that he would cast his son Varun Dhawan in lead, however speculations were rife if Salman Khan, who played lead in earlier film, have any role to play in this movie.
Now a news daily spilled the beans over the script of Judwaa 2. It is revealed that Judwaa 2 is being penned by writer-director duo, Sajid Farhad, closely monitored by Dhawan Sr and producer Sajid Nadiadwala. Over three drafts have been discussed with the makers who are now hoping to kick off the film earlier than planned, targetting a September 2017 release.
Casting is underway for two actresses to step into the shoes of Karisma Kapoor and Rambha (the leading ladies of Salman Khan’s judwa heroes in the original), a source close to the development revealed.”It’s a commercial film being planned on a grand scale with beach locations in the Mediterranean. The script is generously peppered with tapori slang and a remix of the chartbuster “Tan Tana Tan Tan Tan Tara” from the original is in the works. The icing on the cake is that a special appearance is being written for bhaijaan. Salman has already agreed to step in as a `godfather-gunda’ to Varun’s twins,”the source informed.
While the original Judwaa was a remake of the 1994 Telugu movie Hello Brother, which in turn was inspired by Jackie Chan’s 1992 starrer, Twin Dragons, a quirky tale of two estranged brother, the second instalment is a fresh script and not an adaptation or a remake of any film.
