It's been a while since Judwaa 2 (J2) has been in news. Various rumors were doing the rounds taking its casting and host of other things. Finally it is confirmed that David Dhawan will direct his son, the young heartthrob Varun Dhawan in this formidable franchise, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The first Judwaa, starring Salman Khan, Karisma Kapoor and Rambha, released 19 years ago.
This will also be Varun Dhawan's first double role. The pre-production work on the new entertainer is in full swing. A couple of look tests have already happened in Lod Angeles. A major Hollywood studio and DOP (director of photography) along with action-coordinator Spiro Razatos (of Fast & Furious 6 fame), have already done a test shoot for the film.
A skydiving action sequence, using a stand-in artiste to depict a double role, was shot. Now that initial rumours surrounding J2 have been laid to rest, fresh speculations are rife on who will be the two lucky girls cast opposite Varun.
Varun Dhawan is one adorable young star but beneath all the glitz and glamour lies a serious fitness freak. Surprisingly, former WWE star Dave Bautista seems well aware of this fact too. We hear that the hulking actor who will be seen playing the main villain in Daniel Craig’s latest Bond movie Spectre, has challenged our Dhawan lad to a fitness match! In an amazing video addressed to Varun Bautista says - “Are you up for a pull up challenge or are you another Darr-poke!” And what’s more, being the incredible sport that he is, Varun has happily accepted the challenge. Varun immediately took the Twitter to share the news with his fans and wrote, “Dave Bautista has called me out and while he's faced some of the strongest and baddest men on the planet he's never faced me one on one i have accepted his challenge and will respond!!I have always admired Bautista and how he's transitioned from wrestling to acting ...I'm definitely looking forward to Spectre.” Varun Dhawan has always been a wrestling fan and his imitation of The Rock is legendary. Let’s see how this epic challenge plays out! Who do you think will win guys? Do check out Dave’s amazing challenge in the video below. Tags: Varun Dhawan
Looks like Varun Dhawan has been taking his Badlapur character a little too seriously! Apparently, the ABCD 2 star recently revealed that he wants to kill Deepika since she is dating Ranveer Singh! Now now, before all you Deepika fans start pulling out your pitchforks, let us clarify that Varun was only joking. Apparently the actor was challenged to a game of Marry, Date and Kill and his three options were Shraddha Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone. Varun of course chose to marry Shraddha since they simply can’t keep their hands off each other any way. He then added that it would be fun to date Priyanka and we feel Shahid would agree with him on that point. But when it cam eot Deepika, Varun revealed that he might as well kill her since she is dating Ranveer Singh! Do we sense the green-eyed monster hovering around here or does our Dhawan boy have a crush on a committed actress? What do you think guys? Do let us know in the comments section below!

Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon have been shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale in Bulgaria. And thanks to some enterprising fans with camera phones, footage from a romantic song of the film has found its way online! Apparently the song will be titled Lut Gaya Pyaar Mein and shows Varun serenading Kriti on the streets of Bulgaria. The song goes something like – ‘Dil ki phasi hai nayya majdhaar mein, sunle uss taar mein, oh lut gaya pyaar mein. Yeh tu bataa.’
We really can’t see much of Varun and Kriti but it’s enough to make us really look forward to the movie. We doubt director Rohit Shetty will be very happy with the song leaking online though.
You can check out a bit of the song here and let us know what you think!
