Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez

What's a story of a love 'quadrangle' without a good catfight? News comes that Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez, who romance lookalikes played by Varun Dhawan in Judwaa 2, are having some trouble getting along. It's the typical challenge an ensemble cast throws up and David Dhawan's sequel to his 1997 super-hit comedy is no different.

Although the existing tension hasn't developed into an ugly spat, unit hands say it's evident that the cold vibes are strong enough to have the makers chalk out separate schedules to avoid the two coming together on set. A unit hand tells mid-day, "They can barely see eye to eye. Taapsee had shot for 25 days, and Jacqueline, 15, in London. As per their request, their schedules were chalked out in such a way that they didn't overlap. But, Taapsee did bump into Jacqueline when she returned for two days of patch work." They only exchanged pleasantries, the source says, adding, "Varun shares a great rapport with both and wouldn't want to meddle in their matters. They have never had a tiff, but the dislike was evident."

With the film's next schedule set to kick-off in Mumbai, the makers are again shuffling dates to avoid an overlap. "The actresses have parallel tracks and the script demands that they work together for only a few scenes in the climax, shooting for which will be completed over a day or two. In films with ensemble casts, the actors often catch up on set, whether they are shoot together or not. That clearly isn't happening with these ladies."
