Coolie No.1 remake is set to happen and now, it has been confirmed that the female protagonist opposite Varun Dhawan is Sara Ali Khan.
An official statement by the makers reads as:
“It’s official… After 25 years David Dhawan and Vashu Bhagnani come back together to adapt their timeless comedy, Coolie No.1.
The film starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan begins shoot this August.”
The original Coolie No.1 released back in 1995 and had Govinda and Karisma Kapoor playing the lead roles.
Earlier talking about if people will accept him as the new age, Govinda, Varun says:
“Honestly, I think this same question was asked to me when I did Judwaa or Main Tera Hero.
But the idea is not to be anyone but to be me and do it in my own way. The screenplay is amazing. The film is an adaptation and not so as a remake.”
Varun Dhawan was last seen in Kalank and Sara Ali Khan in Simmba. Before jumping on Coolie No.1, Varun will complete Remo D’Souza’s Street Dancer and Sara will complete Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2.
There have also been rumours hinting that Judwaa 3 is scheduled to happen, though there are no confirmations on this as of now.
