Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan together in Coolie no.1
Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan will team up for Coolie No. 1. Farhad Samji confirmed that Sara is a part of the film and he is happy to collaborate with her once again, after the success of Simmba. After Judwaa 2 and Main Tera Hero, filmmaker David Dhawan is teaming up with his son and actor, Varun Dhawan, for the third time to revisit Govinda starrer Coolie No. 1 and present it in a different way to the audience.
“It is a boon for any writer to work with a dedicated actor like Varun. I narrated the dialogue draft to him recently and he immediately asked me for a copy, so he could rehearse his lines even though there is still time for the film to go on the floors. I am looking forward to teaming up with Sara for the second time.” said Farhad Samji
Farhad, who is basking in the success of Rohit Shetty’s directorial Simmba, cleared that this project is more of an adaption in a new format. He added that the film has been written keeping the sensibilities of today’s audience in mind.
And while they are yet to decide the locations to shoot, Farhad revealed that the Varun Dhawan-Sara Ali Khan starrer will have plenty of humor, color and larger than life songs. The film is reportedly set to go on the floors this July.
The original Coolie No. 1, released in 1995, it starred Govinda, Karisma Kapoor, Kader Khan and Shakti Kapoor in lead roles. This film had earned Govinda, performer of the decade award, at an awards ceremony. Interestingly, Coolie No. 1 was one of the first successful films of Karisma Kapoor.
It will be interesting to see how Varun and Sara stun the audience with their acting chops in David Dhawan’s adaption of Coolie No. 1
