Varun Dhawan shared the first look of his much-awaited David Dhawan film, Judwaa 2 Tuesday morning.

He tweeted the first look of the film, revealing he’s playing Raja and Prem, the double role Salman Khan made famous in the original film in 1997. The sequel too will have Varun playing two diametrically opposite characters: Prem, a suit clad, bespectacled well-mannered NRI, and Raja, a long-haired Mumbai ‘tapori’.

Directed by David Dhawan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the shooting for Judwaa 2 began this weekend. The film also has Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu play the roles made famous by Karisma Kapoor and Rambha in the original. Reports suggest that Salman may make a guest appearance in Judwaa 2.

The sequel has retained two of Anu Malik’s hit songs from the original film: Chalti Hai Kya Nau Se Barah and Oonchi Hai Building.

Taapsee Pannu also tweeted the first look:

Talking about his film, Varun Dhawan said, “Judwaa is the biggest film I have done. I’m a die-hard fan of the original movie so this day is special anyway. Now, I just want to put my head down and be a part of the vision Sajid sir and dad have for the sequel”.
