Seems like post Kedarnath and Simmba, all one can talk about is Sara Ali Khan and her upcoming venture Coolie No. 1 remake, opposite Varun Dhawan!
Coolie No. 1
Riding on the success of her second outing Simmba, post her successful debut in Kedarnath, Sara Ali Khan is in much demand. After all, the girl has been just two films old and already she is being roped in to star opposite top actors from Gen-Y by next year — from Sushant Singh Rajput and Ranveer Singh to soon romance even Kartik Aaryan in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2.
Well, the actress has been roped in yet again for another venture, Coolie No. 1 remake, starring Varun Dhawan and to be directed by the one and only David Dhawan. The duo will with take on the roles of the original star couple Govinda and Karisma Kapoor, as released in 1995, which was a huge hit.
According to the reports of DNA, a source revealed, “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.”
Apparently, Sara was approached long before her debut in Kedarnath, to discuss the film with her, as the source adds, “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.”
Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan will soon join in on this fun ride, post the completion of his pre-scheduled commitments for Kalank and Remo D’Souza’s dance film.
As quoted by the daily, “He is almost done with Kalank and begins work on Remo D’souza’s dance film on January 22. He will wrap it up by April and plans to start work on Coolie No.1 around July. His and Sara’s bulk dates have been locked. The team is eyeing a festival release in the first half of 2020.”
Well, for starters this a definite lookout for us, as we can expect some real fun on the way!
