This is the first time Varun is seen playing a double role. He brings back the iconic characters Raja and Prem, portrayed by the "Dabangg" star in "Judwaa".
"Im not influenced from any Hollywood actor but influenced by Salman Khan. Thank you for being my Raja and Prem. the film is yours now," Varun captioned the image.
The "Main Tera Hero" actor also wrote that it had been an "amazing journey" to team up with his father David Dhawan, who has directed the film and producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
"I genuinely hope I can make people laugh and smile and just enjoy. We need to learn to laugh on ourselves and not be scared of judgment. So I did this film to do that this is an Indian genre not something influenced from the west," Varun added.
"Judwaa 2", which also stars Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez, is presented by Fox Star Studios and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment.
The film released on Friday.
