Paresh Rawal could be stepping into late Kader Khan’s shoes for the Coolie No 1 remake starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan.
Speaking about this a source stated to the tabloid: “He plays the role of Sara’s father, Hoshiyar Chand, and the humour in the film revolves around his part.
While the role in the original film was more in the orthodox zone, the new one has been tweaked as per modern sensibilities.”
After shooting for 20 days in Bangkok, Varun and Sara will be heading to Goa for their next schedule.
The source said: “After wrapping up the overseas shoot, the team flies to Goa to finish another big schedule of the film.”
On May 1, 2019, Varun took to his social media pages and wrote:
“Aaj Ka Din, Agle Saal Aega Coolie No.1 – Hoga Kamaal !!! Coolie No.1 releases on May 1, 2020 #DavidDhawan #SaraAliKhan @vashubhagnani @poojafilms #1YearForCoolieNo1 #LabourDay”
This is Varun’s third outing with his dad after Main Tera Hero and Judwaa 2.
The film is a remake of 1995 classic comedy starring Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead roles.
Coolie No 1 is all set to go on floors in the month of August in Bangkok and David completed recce a few days back. It also reunites ace filmmaker with Vashu Bhagnani after 25 years.
