Ask him if audiences will accept him as the new-age-Govinda since he’s stepping in his shoes, Varun said, “Honestly, I think this same question was asked to me when I did Judwaa or Main Tera Hero. But the idea is not to be anyone but to be me and do it in my own way. The screenplay is amazing. The film is an adaptation and not so as a remake.”
When he was asked about the leading actress in the film, he replied that the makers will soon announce it. “They are going to announce it soon. (I prompted that it’s Sara Ali Khan, he smiled).” Varun further also revealed about the shooting schedule of the film. He said that they will start shooting for the film in August – September.
He further also added, “The essence has to be the same that’s the point of doing it. But the film is completely different, it has to be completely different.”
Ask him if the makers will retain any song from the original one? He promptly replied, “I can’t say anything right now. It’s too early (Laughs).”
