While Jacqueline will play Mala, originally played by Karisma Kapoor, Parineeti will be playing Roopa, Rambha's character.

DNA reports, “The makers wanted two top actresses from the young generation to be paired opposite Varun. And they wanted two heroines who he’s never been paired with.”

Just like the original this film will also be directed by David Dhawan and will be Varun's first double role in a film.

In an interview to Hindustan Times, Varun said “Once the script is locked, I think the first person who is going to hear it will be Salman bhai. Dad and I will go. I would like to do that out of respect for Salman bhai. It will also be beneficial for me to learn about his experience of working on the movie. That will be great for us.”

The film gave us some catchy dance numbers like 'Oonchi Hain Building' and 'Tan Tana Tan' composed by Anu Malik. Deccan Chronicle reports that while the music director has not been approached for the film, his composed song 'Tan Tana Tan' will definitely be a part of it.

Varun Dhawan said to the daily, “'Tan tana tan' will definitely feature in the film. It will be interesting to see how the audience reacts to me dancing to that song. I’ve been dancing to it since childhood. It’s like a dream come true for me to do that song.”

Speaking about his absence, Anu Malik said, “I’m happy that Judwaa 2 is in the making, but the makers haven’t approached me to compose the music for the film.I’m so proud that songs of Judwaa still rule several Bollywood parties.”

The film will go on floors in January and the look-tests have already begun in Los Angeles.

Judwaa was a remake of the 1994 Telugu film Hello Brother which was inspired from Jackie Chan's film Twin Dragons.
