Af­ter work­ing with ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan in Pink (2016) and Ak­shay Ku­mar in this year’s Naam Sha­bana — ac­tor Taapsee Pannu (right) is def­i­nitely not new to starry vibes. How­ever, the Delhi girl was in for a sur­prise when she got to meet ac­tor Sal­man Khan while wrap­ping up the shoot­ing for her up­com­ing film Jud­waa 2. Sal­man joined the cast of the film for a cameo shoot and Varun Dhawan, who is repris­ing Khan’s role from the 2000 hit film Jud­waa, took to In­sta­gram to share a pic­ture too, (above).

Asked how it was to meet Sal­man, Taapsee says, “I had heard so much about him that I just re­mained in awe of him. I kept look­ing and couldn’t take my eyes off him. It was that crazy starstruck mo­ment for me. I was just try­ing to fathom the fact that he was stand­ing there, right next to me.”

Whether there were any words of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for her past films or per­for­mances, Taapsee adds, “We didn’t re­ally have all those con­ver­sa­tions. The only time we talked — there was a bunch of us from the en­tire cast and crew in the room, chat­ting to­gether and shar­ing some funny anec­dotes from the past ex­pe­ri­ences of shoot­ing for Jud­waa.”

So what were these fun con­ver­sa­tions? “He was talk­ing about his mem­o­ries with David [Dhawan] and Sa­jid [Na­di­ad­wala] sir, since their equa­tion dates back to so many years,” quips Taapsee. “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.” she adds.
