We even spotted Jung interacting with the young lead pair, Kriti Sanon and Varun Dhawan, in Dubai.

And if you thought the revelations ended here then you're sadly mistaken. Shaista Lodhi, the morning show host of Hum Sitarey, is also in Dubai with Jung, to interview the cast. So Pakistani channels are going to be hit by a double whammy soon. She uploaded a few pictures of herself with Dilwale's junior lead actors, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, and boy are we jealous or what!

Too much gorgeousness in one picture. #exclusive #interview #kirti #dxb
