Varun and Taapsee shoot in London University, to sell IPL tickets


The Judwaa 2 team in London

The Judwaa 2 team is currently shooting the iconic track from 1997 Salman Khan- Karisma Kapoor-starrer, Oonchi Hai Building at the London University. Varun Dhawan and Taapsee Pannu will be seen performing to this track. The song is being recreated by none other than Anu Malik and choreographed by Bosco.

While shooting the song, many students from the university have been stopping by and grooving along with stars. A source said “Varun’s affable nature allows him to bond with students easily. Over the weekend, a bunch of his fans had come to meet him and he was a thorough gentleman with them.” On the other hand, Taapsee being an introvert has been oozing the renewed energy for the shoot. Taapsee will be seen playing a rich Gujarati in the film. While she was on sets, students from the university helped her get the quirks right for her character. The actors including Jacqueline Fernandez are even learning skateboarding for a specific sequence in the film.

On a different note, the makers of Judwaa 2, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Fox Star Studios are promoting the film in this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL).  The cast of the film will be fronting a nationwide digital campaign that will allow participants to win Judwaa (1+1) IPL tickets every week till the finals of the tournament! The makers through this contest are integrating the nostalgia of the original film starring Salman Khan and are going to run contests that inform people about the current movie being directed by David Dhawan.

The spokespersons from Fox Star Studios and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment say, “We wanted to have an ongoing engagement with fans regarding the movie Judwaa 2 and what better opportunity can one have with IPL being the biggest news making event of our country. It is the right platform to connect with audience who is interested in entertainment and open to engage. We have planned a month long contest activity where fans can interact directly with the talent on the digital platforms and have a chance to win weekly tickets to exciting IPL matches. We have also made sure that every person in this country has a chance to win tickets to matches by giving out tickets for all the venues where IPL matches are going to be played.”

Judwaa 2 is set to release on September 29.
