David Dhawan is in the final stages of readying his next release ‘Coolie No.1’, a remake of the popular 90s film, which originally starred Govinda.
The 2020 version of the film will be led by Dhawan’s son, Varun Dhawan. Reacting to similarity suggestions between Varun and Govinda, David was cited in Deccan Chronicle saying, “I can’t be doing a faithful remake of the Govinda film. Firstly, Varun is not similar to Govinda at all. Govinda was a legend in his own right with a style no one can copy. What Govinda and I did together in films like Haseena Maan Jayegi, Hero No 1 and Coolie No 1 can’t be repeated with any other hero.”
He added, “Most of all not with Varun. He is a different actor from Govinda, or for that matter Salman Khan. When Varun did the remake of Judwaa, he didn’t try to do what Salman did. No actor can do what Govinda or Salman can do. Varun in Coolie No.1 is as different from Govinda in the original as Varun was from Salman in the new Judwaa.”
