With filmmakers on the hunt for original shooting locations, it has emerged that the remake of ‘Coolie No.1’ will be shot in Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan.
Confirming the news, director David Dhawan was cited in Deccan Chronicle saying, “You have to see this place. It is a paradise on earth. We were invited by the government of Azerbaijan to visit and choose the location and we were completely bowled over. Why hasn’t anyone shot an Indian film here before?”
As well as Varun, the film also stars Sara Ali Khan. The original film was entirely shot in Mumbai and thus it remains to be seen how the remake will look in Azerbaijan.
‘Coolie No.1’ remake releases on 1st May 2020.
