A memorable Twitter contest was recently held calling entries from real-life twins to be a part of the trailer launch of David Dhawan's Judwaa 2. But when the event occurred, the 100-twins who were supposed to be present at the event were evidently missing. So was the reason for the goof-up and skipping of the ultra publicised upshot.
Going by a report, the real reason has finally come to light. According to the report, 50 pairs of real-life twins were, in fact, invited by the makers of the film and put up at a 5-star hotel in Mumbai a day prior to the event. The 100 participants were even promised a special part in the trailer event alongside actors Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu. However, things took an unexpected turn when a particular pair of twins started to misbehave with Jacqueline.
An anonymous contestant confirmed the incident and said that "the plan was amended after a few male contestants from the group crossed the line of decency. He informed that an over-enthusiastic pair barged past the security, nudging aside the bodyguards, and got to Jacqueline. They wanted to click selfies with her and tried to get uncomfortably close. She tried to oblige, but, their aggression must have put her off, thus calling off the gig for good."
The source added that actor Varun Dhawan took the lead to resolve the mess and demanded that the said pair be evicted.
The two were then asked to leave and the original plan of action cancelled. The other contestants were, however, quite supportive apparently and sportingly accepted the devising. On the other hand, to ensure that the other participants do not feel disheartened, the stars and crew of the film made special time to interact with remaining guest twins at their hotel.
According to sources close to production, all the activities scheduled at PVR Juhu was shifted to Novotel, where the winners were put up, and the actors spent some quality time with their fans while shooting for digital promos.
