Filmmaker David Dhawan has collaborated with Sajid Nadiadwala to make a remake of the 1997 hit ‘Judwaa' which featured Salman Khan in a double role and remains one of the actor's iconic roles. In a recent interview, the director opened up about directing his son Varun Dhawan in a role which is very much similar to Salman Khan in the original. Talking about the difference between Varun and Salman, David said, "They are very different actors, Salman is something else. Initially, I thought that he was lazy, but he takes time to settle down and once he does, he knows exactly what needs to be done. He can hold the audience's attention."

David went on to say that Salman is very nice and he often tells Varun that he should be as endearing as Salman in his career. Sharing his views on the ongoing debate about nepotism in the film industry, David said that though he agrees that an artist from a filmy family can get an easy opportunity but at the end of the day talent is needed to survive in the film industry. He also said that he had to struggle in the industry for 10 years before he could establish himself as a director.

The film ‘Judwaa 2' features actors Varun Dhawan, Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez in lead roles and is scheduled to release in cinemas this week. The film is enjoying a good buzz and its music has also clicked with music listeners and is thus expected to take a decent opening at the box office.
