The extremely talented Taapsee who wowed us this year with her intensely evocative performance in Pink is all set to let her hair down with a light-hearted, frothy comedy, David Dhawan’s Judwaa 2 — the much-delayed sequel to the 1997 comedy featuring Salman Khan in the lead. The sequel, again directed by David, features the director’s son Varun in a double role.
Taapsee says, “I am totally looking forward to this change of mood in my career. I needed a little bit of singing and dancing in my life too. Judwaa 2 will be a change for me. The comedy genre will be a break from what I’ve lined up. I needed to feel like a typical Bollywood heroine for a change.”
Lest we forget, Taapsee began her career in Bollywood with a remake of Sai Paranjpye’s classic comedy Chashme Baddoor directed by David Dhawan. Smiling at that mirthful trot down memory lane Taapsee says, “David sir is one of my favourite directors from childhood. And it was my good fortune that I started my career in Hindi cinema with his Chashme Baddoor. I still dance like crazy on the songs of Judwaa. It’s been three years since Chashme Baddoor and people need to see yet another side of me.”
Taapsee is looking forward to working with Varun Dhawan on this project. “He is fun and a fine actor. Someday, I’d also love to work with Salman Khan who was in the original Judwaa,” she signs off.
