"I am excited to shoot with Varun because he is not only my childhood friend but also the most versatile actor of our generation,” she said.
"We have grown up together in the same film environment as we used to accompany our fathers during the shoots. He is my friend first than a co-star and I really hope that our chemistry as friends translates onscreen too," Shraddha said in an interview.
Expressing her fears, Shraddha said that she is worried about matching the high-octane energy of Varun and is currently undergoing dance workshops in Mumbai.
"I am playing a professional dancer in the film. To match up with the energy level of Varun and other real dancers in the film is a challenge for me,” Shraddha said.
"'ABCD 2' is a great learning experience for me as I am getting to learn how to become passionate and dedicated towards your interest," she said.
The sequel of the last year's 3D dance film will also see the previous actors Prabhu Deva, Lauren Gottlieb, Punit Pathak Dharmesh Yelande reprising their roles besides Shraddha and Varun playing the lead.
Shraddha credits the back-to-back success of her last two releases 'Aashiqui 2' and 'Ek Villain' to her director Mohit Suri.
"I am lucky that I have given two hits and I owe my success to Mohit Suri. But at the same time I have to work hard to fulfill the expectations from my fans. I just hope that all these films help me to sharpen my acting prowess," she said.
Shraddha, who is the daughter of Shakti Kapoor, started her career with Amitabh Bachchan starrer 'Teen Patti' but she could not make a mark in the industry despite having a dream start. Her second outing as a college girl in Yash Raj Films' 'Luv Ka The End' also went unnoticed.
Shraddha, however, is happy to see her stock rise in Bollywood despite a poor start.
"I am happy that I am getting unique and challenging roles now despite giving two unsuccessful films. With my each film I am learning as an actress," she said.
Shraddha is currently gearing up for her next film ‘Haider’ which is directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
