Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan will be seen reprising Govinda and Karisma Kapoor’s roles in Coolie No 1, which is being directed by David Dhawan again.
The announcement of the film was made back in April with a photo of the coolie badge which was shared on social media by Varun. Initially, the role played by late Kader Khan needed to be filled in. Kader Khan was seen as Karisma Kapoor’s father, Hoshiyar Chand, in the previous film.
Now, the shooting of the film is all set to get kicked off in the coming months. According to Mumbai Mirror, Paresh Rawal has been roped in to play, Hoshiyar Chand, as Sara Ali Khan’s father in the reboot of Coolie No 1. And the comic element will revolve around his character. However, there will be tweaks to his role based on the fact this version of the film will be set in sync with modern times.
While the role in the original film was more in the orthodox zone, the new one has been tweaked as per modern sensibilities
In the 1995 film, Kedar Khan was cast as Hoshiyar Chand who is a father of two daughters. Moreover, he wants them to get married to a rich family. His life changes after a meeting with Govinda (Raju), a coolie who pretends to be a wealthy builder. And has fallen in love with one of Hoshiya Chand’s daughter.
Moreover, the second lead, who will be playing Sara’s sister in the film is still being searched for.
