Sara Ali Khan to be Paired Opposite Varun Dhawan For Coolie No. 1 Remake

Sara Ali Khan is the new girl on the block. Her first two films, Kedarnath and Simmba released within a month, where Kedarnath did fairly well and Simmba rocked the box office in just a week of its release. She is everywhere on the internet and this time again, she has already bagged another big movie alongside Varun Dhawan reportedly.

David Dhawan, Indian film director is popular for his No. 1 series with movies like Biwi No. 1, Aunty No. 1, Hero No. 1, Jodi No. 1 among others and now, he is coming up with a remake of one of his all-time hits, Coolie No. 1 with Varun Dhawan. The father son duo has collaborated in 2 movies in past and this would be their third collaboration after Main Tera Hero and Judwaa 2.

The previous Coolie No. 1 starred Govinda and Karishma (or Karisma) Kapoor in the lead role. She was the only actor who could match the madness Salman Khan and Govinda brought on screen. Where Varun matches Govinda’s crazy to an extent, after a long time we can see someone matching the craziness of Karishma Kapoor, and that is Sara Ali Khan. She is a goofball, a mature and an intelligent one though and the filmmakers think she would be perfect to be paired opposite Varun Dhawan in a movie like this.

A source revealed,

 “Varun and Sara will share screen space in the former’s first home production. It will be directed by David Dhawan, who had also helmed the original. This will be the first film to roll out under their banner The One Entertainment. The team wanted a new jodi for the comedy and the Dhawans felt Sara would be apt for it.”

Apparently, Sara was offered the movie much before her debut. The source further adds,

“They were in talks for some time and had approached her even before Kedarnath hit the marquee. The idea is to adapt the original and modernise it. The 23-year-old will step into Karisma’s shoes, but the makers are changing the character sketch a bit and making it even more prominent in the remake.”

Varun and Sara would be paired for the first time and it is always good to see a fresh pairing. About the movie going on floors and Sara and Varun’s upcoming projects, the informer said,

“He is almost done with Kalank and begins work on Remo D’souza’s dance film on January 22. He will wrap it up by April and plans to start work on Coolie No.1 around July. His and Sara’s bulk dates have been locked. The team is eyeing a festival release in the first half of 2020.”

Well, we have to admit that it is some start to be made. Sara Ali Khan already has romanced Sushant Singh Rajput and Ranveer Singh in her first two films and in the next two, she will be romancing Kartik Aaryan in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2 and Varun Dhawan in David Dhawan’s Coolie No. 1. And all the credit goes to Sara for creating an impact with her acting and her personality on the filmmakers.
