Taapsee Pannu is part of Judwaa 2, which has Varun Dhawan reprising Salman Khan’s role from the 1997 original.
The film also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and is directed by David Dhawan. Recently, at an award ceremony, Taapsee, who is a Salman fan, got a chance to meet her idol and came away awe-struck.
This is what she recounted to a leading daily. “I had seen and heard so much of him that for a second, I was just taken aback and remained in awe of him.
I just kept looking and couldn’t take my eyes off him. It was that crazy star-struck moment for me.
I was just trying to fathom the fact that he was standing there, right next to me and in the same frame.
I was meeting him for the first time and it was too brief a meeting, so it was more like an introduction, greeting each other, a couple of minutes of chatting with the entire team together and then just got a picture clicked together.
Whenever I meet him next time, maybe, I would talk to him with ease.”
Taapsee recalled that Salman brought in much laughter to the meeting. “He was basically talking about how he has memories with David Dhawan sir and Sajid Nadiadwala sir since their equation dates back to so many years.
He was giggling while talking about some off the set experiences and funny situations that they have had two decades ago while shooting for Judwaa.”
