After a dream launch in her Bollywood with films like ‘Kedarnath’ and ‘Simmba’, Sara Ali Khan is reportedly set to star opposite Varun Dhawan in the remake of ‘Coolie No.1’.
While, the actress has been linked to the project before her debut release ‘Kedarnath’, it now looks certain that the newcomer will be taking up the project. Khan has already openly expressed her desire to work with Dhawan.
A source told DNA India, “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.”
The source added, “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.”
The film is expected to go on the floors during summer 2019.
