According to the latest grapevine in B-Town actresses Jacqueline Fernandez and ‘Pink’ star Taapsee Pannu have been approached to the female leads opposite Varun Dhawan in ‘Judwaa 2’.

Its said that Jaqueline will step into the shoes of Karisma Kapoor’s character from the original, while Taapsee Pannu will essay the role played by Rambha.

Initially after the sizzling chemistry between Varun and Parineeti Chopra in the song ‘Jaaneman Aah’ from ‘Dishoom’ it was rumored that the actress would star in the movie. But recently a source revealed that after Aditya Chopra’s suggestion of not doing a multi-starrer movie, Parineeti Chopra decided to turn down the movie. Later it was said that Varun’s ‘Main Tera Hero’ co-star Ileana D’Cruz was also reported to have been considered for the film.

There were also rumours that Varun’s much-loved pairing with Alia Bhatt would be repeated for the film. However, Varun had recently taken to Twitter, contradicting a report that stated that Alia was signed for the film, and that he will soon announce the names.

Varun’s father David Dhawan, who had helmed ‘Judwaa’, will also direct the sequel.

It needs to be seen if Varun can manage to step into the massive shoes of Salman Khan.
