Sara Ali Khan, on Koffee With Karan, had said that she would love to work with Varun Dhawan and it seems that her dream has come true as Sara Ali Khan has been signed up for David Dhawan’s Coolie No. 1 remake opposite Varun Dhawan! A source spilled the beans over the movie remake and said, “The red coolie’s uniform that Govinda and Amitabh Bachchan wore in Coolie No 1 and Coolie are a thing of the past. If you see the coolies on Matunga station of Mumbai Central they are dressed in jeans and T Shirt. Ditto Varun. Also his character won’t spend much time on the railway station. “Once it’s established what Varun’s profession is, the film will quickly move to the comedy and drama outside the railway station.”
Talking about Sara Ali Khan, who will be seen stepping into Karisma Kapoor’s shoes for the film, the source added, “She will play a feisty outgoing glib talker, just like Karisma.” Not to mention, the makers are also planning to retain the original chartbusters from Coolie No. 1 – Husn Hai Suhana and Main Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha. “We plan to keep the original songs as sung by Abhijeet -Chandana Dixit (‘Husn Hai Suhana’) and Kumar Sanu-Alka Yagnik (‘Main To Raste Se Jaa Raha Ttha’) in the remake. Why should David Dhawan re-mix those hits when they are popular to this day?”, confirmed the source.
Interestingly, when VD was asked to comment on the Coolie No. 1 remake, he had said, “Why I wanted to do this film is because when I watched Coolie No 1, I was so entertained. I had such a good time watching it. It is a family film. It is one of the funniest and most entertaining films I have ever watched. It has an amazing screenplay and starred brilliant actors. We are adapting it. It is not a remake. I just want to try and bring that kind of fun back. That is why my father is also ready to do it. He has changed a lot of things. He has challenged himself also. He is the only one who knows the sun for this kind of film.”
