We recently hosted an amazing Google+ Hangout with Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor, the stars of ABCD2, along with Remo D’Souza, the director and choreographer of the film. Not only did the three get to speak to all the fans who had dialed in to ask their questions directly, but they also got all your questions and messages from Twitter! Throughout the chat, we learned a bunch of fun stuff about them – and the film – and we couldn’t resist sharing them with you in case you missed the Hangout while it was happening LIVE. (Psst – the entire thing is already up on YouTube so make sure to watch it again!)
Although Varun would like you to believe that Shraddha is the naughtiest person on sets, both Remo and Shraddha agree that it is, in fact, Varun. Remo actually told us that if Varun wants something, he’ll go through Shraddha – “If he wants to go home early, he’ll say, ‘Remo sir, Shraddha has to say something! Oh, Shraddha, you don’t want to say it? Shraddha wants to go home early!'”
Varun was asked how he stays humble despite achieving success. According to him, he works with great, talented people who are humble – and that keeps him humble. “You can’t fake it. It’s just about being normal and treating each and every person with the respect and dignity they deserve. We, as human beings, should respect this. There’s no point being arrogant.”
Remo was asked why he decided to make ABCD2 a 3D film, and he said, “When the audience comes to the theatre, I want them to get involved in my script and film. When you wear 3D glasses, either you are in the film with the characters, or they are outside with you. So the involvement is why I made it a 3D film.” And then Varun revealed that a recent study showed that 3D films helps improve your brain activity!
Varun Dhawan says: “Shraddha Kapoor is a never-before-seen avatar. She’s a patakha in the film! All the boys’ jaws are going to drop – and also the girls’.”
We were told that ABCD2 will show Las Vegas like you’ve never seen it before – “what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas, you can watch it in ABCD2!” It turns out they had a lot of fun in Vegas while not shooting, but they won’t say what went down there. Ahem!
“Someone called me a waste of space. My mother.” *LOL*
The film takes the world ahead, but it’s not an extension. You’ll see some of the same faces – Dharmesh etc – as the previous film, but you won’t need to watch the first one to understand this one.
You gotta watch the Hangout to check this out! One of our dial-ins was celebrating his birthday on that day, and Varun Dhawan did the happy birthday rap for him. His day was made, and we were all suitably impressed.
There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes action on MissMalini’s vlog, so catch it all below! And we’re giving YOU a chance to win signed photos. Just watch the vlog and comment below telling us what Shraddha is wearing in the song Nach Meri Jaan Nach, and you can take away autographed pictures :)
