After months of rumours, the remake of cult classic ‘Coolie No.1’ (1995) has been confirmed, which will see Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan coming together for the first time.
Confirming the news, writer Farhad Samji told Mumbai Mirror, “It is a boon for any writer to work with a dedicated actor like Varun. I narrated the dialogue draft to him recently and he immediately asked me for a copy, so he could rehearse his lines even though there is still time for the film to go on the floors. I am looking forward to teaming up with Sara for the second time.”
Samji denied the film was a sequel. He said the film will be “an adaptation in a new format” with “plenty of humour and colour, larger-than-life songs”.
Khan is currently working on Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Love Aaj Kal’ sequel with Kartik Aaryan. She already has two hit films under her belt including ‘Kedarnath’ and ‘Simmba’.
