- Varun Dhawan stepped into Salman Khan's shoes for Judwaa 2
- Judwaa 2 released yesterday and collected over Rs 16 crore on Day 1
- Varun will promote Judwaa 2 on Day 1 of Bigg Boss 11
Here's a glimpse from tonight's episode:
This was Varun's Friday post for Salman:
Bigg Boss 11 is set to start from tomorrow and the celebrities and non-celebs participating in the show for sure will be revealed tomorrow. Names like Hiten Tejwani, Nia Sharma, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Nandish Sandhu and Dhinchak Pooja on and off feature in headline for their reported participation. This year, Mouni Roy will co-host the show with Salman Khan.
Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan's Judwaa 2 is running successfully in theatres with the opening day collection amounting to Rs 16.10 crore (in India). Varun's film failed to impress critics, who believe that a) the film has 'nothing new to offer' and b) Varun Dhawan tries too hard to match Salman Khan's performance and that was a "bad move." Bollywood celebs on the other hand love Varun's performance and said that the film is "Everything you imagine it to be and more."
