As per the reports sourced from a tabloid, after the demise of Kader Khan, he will be replaced by Paresh Rawal in the remake of ‘Coolie No 1’ starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan. Going in details, David Dhawan has roped in his son cum Bollywood newcomer: Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan to play the lead couple in his remake of Coolie No 1. The original version i.e. 1995 classic comedy had Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead roles.
The shooting for the remake is all set to go on floors in the month of August in Bangkok and David completed recce just few days back. This film is also reuniting David with Vashu Bhagnani after a long 25 years.
Apart from Govinda and Karisma, original Coolie No 1 also starred late actor Kader Khan, who sadly left us left year. Now a Mumbai Mirror report states, that filmmakers have roped in Paresh Rawal to step into the shoes of the legendary actor.
Sharing some details, a source told 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 a 20 day shoot in Bangkok, both Varun and Sara will head to Goa for their next schedule.
The source further shared, “After wrapping up the overseas shoot, the team flies to Goa to finish another big schedule of the film.”
On May 1st, Varun used his social media handle to share, “Aaj ka Din, Agle Saal Aayega Coolie No.1 – Hoga Kamaal !!! Coolie No.1 releases on May 1, 2020 #DavidDhawan #SaraAliKhan @vashubhagnani @poojafilms #1YearForCoolieNo1 #LabourDay”
This will be Varun’s 3rd project with his dad cum filmmaker after Main Tera Hero and Judwaa 2 in the past.
