The extremely talented Tapsee 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 comedic turn in 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 Dhawan who had directed the original , features the director’s son Varun Dhawan in a double role.
So what made Tapsee do a romantic lead in a film where the heroines Karisma Kapoorand Rambha had very little to do in the first place?This too at a time when Tapsee is being praised to the skies for her intense performance.
Says Tapsee, “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 and career. Judwaa 2 will be a change for me.The comedy genre will be a slight break from what I’ve lined up. I needed to feel like a typical Bollywood heroine for a change.”
Lest we forget , Tapsee began her career in Bollywood with a remake of Sai Paranjpye’s classic comedy Chashme Buddoor. The remake was directed by David Dhawan.
Smiling at that mirthful trot down memory lane Tapsee says, “David Sir was one of my favourite directors from childhood .And it was my good fortune that I started my career in Hindi cinema with his Chashme Buddoor.I still dance like crazy on the songs of Judwaa.It’s been three years sinece Chashme Buddoor and people need to see yet another side of me.”
Tapsee 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.”
