David Dhawan on Salman: Khan saab is something else
The trailer of Varun Dhawan‘s ‘Judwaa 2’ was unveiled yesterday, at the presence of director David Dhawan who had also directed the 1997 film ‘Judwaa’. It is challenging for any youngster to get into a kind of character that has earlier been played by Salman Khan. Looking at Varun and his confident deliverance, however, we can vouch he has done a great job!
“See, I know there is an expectation. It is good that people expect from me… I want that. I work for the audience, so I want them to expect from me and that drives me to improve,” he said, when asked whether he feels the pressure.

Quite inevitably, at the event, senior Dhawan was asked about having worked with Salman Khan. After all these years, he is still all praises for the superstar.
“Salman is a seasoned actor. These days he has become something else, but I can remember directing him in ‘Judwaa’. Whenever he gave a shot, it looked like he was not interested, but he is the most interested one.
Even today when I watch the film and his performance, again and again, I keep saying he was bloody good in the film. Khan saab is something else, you know.”
Dhawan’s conflict with his once-upon-a-time favourite actor Govinda also made headlines; wherein Govinda accused the former of backing out of his promise and not working with him again. Dhawan, however, is open to working with Govinda again.
“Why not, sure. But I would like to mention that Manji (Manmohan Desai) is always my guru… I followed his footstep all my career as a filmmaker.
I have always made films for Entertainment and I have worked with various actors. Yes, Govinda and I have created history in cinema… Govinda has been different, that’s it. Now I am making a film with my son,” he said.
We are awaiting a reaction from Govinda now!
