Shraddha Kapoor is said to have been signed as one of Varun Dhawan's two leading ladies for the sequel to the 1997 film 'Judwaa'
Varun Dhawan has stepped into Salman Khan's shoes for the sequel to David Dhawan's 1997 hit 'Judwaa', which starred two actresses — Karisma Kapoor and Rambha.
And sources close to the project reveal that Shraddha has been signed as one of the two girls opposite the young actor, who will be seen in a double role.
"This will be the second time that Varun will be seen with Shraddha. Their pairing in the 2015 dance drama ABCD 2 was received well by the audience and the makers want to cash in on that. The other actress is yet to be finalised," says an insider.
Shraddha's spokesperson denied the story, saying, "She has not been approached for the project." However, our sources maintain that she has been signed for the project which is likely to roll during the latter part of the year.
The David Dhawan directorial has original producer Sajid Nadiadwala on board. Confirming strong buzz about the sequel, Varun revealed his look from the film on social media yesterday. Interestingly, when we had got in touch with Dhawan Sr and Nadiadwala last November to enquire about the 1997 film's part deux, they had both denied the story.
