Fans were quite excited about the film and wanted to see the film in theatres but the entire team has decided otherwise. Varun Dhawan starrer Coolie no 1 is a modern-day version of the 90s blockbuster. The film is mainly shot in Bangkok, and this is Varun Dhawan’s second film with his dad, David Dhawan. The first wone was Judwaa.
The makers of the film have recreated a beautiful track of the original coolie no 1 Mein Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha. Tanishk Bagchi composed this song. Talking about the track, director David Dhawan said, “It is an important song for our film, and it has heart. But times have changed, so I am going to picturise it very differently with Varun and Sara.” Recalling about the original track, David said. “We found a place in Bangalore with a lot of Bhel Puri stalls and had the lead pair (Govinda and Karisma) strolling through it, exploring ‘Mumbai’. I thought it was the best way to capture the essence of the Maximum City back then.”
In an interview, even Govinda expressed his views on working with the coveted director, David Director, he said, Govinda had spoken about working with David Dhawan. He had said, “I do not think his son will ever do 17 films with him, because he is, after all, David Dhawan’s son. He is educated. I never realized the meaning of doing 17 films with a director. It was Sanjay Dutt who told me to give work to a fellow Punjabi (David Dhawan). I used to give work to fellow Punjabis at that time. I liked David and did many hit films with him. I did not even treat my relatives so well as I treated him. Even with my brother, who is a director, I did not do 17 films.”
