Varun Dhawan is prepping up for release of Badrinath Ki Dulhania. “That’s not true at all. I have worked with Jacqueline, and Tapsee is a very dear friend. Meanwhile, the Dishoom actor has completed “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”, which also stars Alia Bhatt. Asked about his much-awaited film Judwaa 2, which will also star Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu, Varun said: “I always wanted to work with Jacqueline and Taapsee.
