David Dhawan has been out of the limelight and the movie-making loop for more than three years. The last film that he directed was Main Tera Hero which starred his son, the star on the rise Varun Dhawan.
Now David will again direct his son in Judwaa 2, a sequel to the Salman Khan helmed Judwaa in 1997. David in a rare tete-a-tete reveals, “We are going to start shooting by the end of the year. Right now I am working on the script. We’ve to make sure the story justifies a sequel. We can’t just have sequel to cash in on a successful film. That’s we waited 18 years to do the sequel.”
The prolific director of countless super hit comedies says he agreed to do Judwaa 2 only for his son’s sake. “I am in this because producer Sajid Nadiadwala asked me. He and I go back a long way. When Varun was cast in Judwaa 2, I had to do the sequel.”
David Dhawan who went through a couple of health scares recently is now trying to cut down on his calories. “I am trying not to love food so much anymore. I am again focusing on direction. This is a good time to make films. So many different kinds of films are being made for the audience. But one thing remains unchanged. The audience wants entertainment. I’ve always tried to provide entertainment in my films. I am going to try my best to do the same in Judwaa 2.”
David is very proud of both his sons. “Rohit is directing his second film now. As for Varun he did it all on his own. We don’t show it to him. But we are very proud of him.”
