Jacqueline Fernandez has dived headlong into her next, 'Judwaa 2', which also stars Varun Dhawan and Taapsee Pannu.
Two hit songs from Salman Khan's 1997 original, 'Judwaa', 'Tan Tana Tan' and 'Oonchi Hai Building', are being recreated. Jackky tells mid-day she rehearsed for 70 hours a week to get the steps right. She says that despite a gruelling schedule, she is having a lot of fun. "When you work on the remake of such an iconic film, getting tired is not an option. I think the rehearsals helped us get in the groove. I am sure the hard work will pay off."

The 'Kick' actress adds that recreating the songs has been fun. "We are nervous, yet excited, as we want to do justice to the tracks. Varun is a far better dancer, but we get things right together."
Choreographer Ganesh Acharya, who had worked on the original film, has been roped in for the remake. "He choreographed the songs back in the day and is calling the shots even today. We wanted to maintain the authenticity, yet add new steps to the tracks," she says.
