Sara Ali Khan & Varun Dhawan


After months of speculations, it has been confirmed that Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan are set to team up for filmmaker David Dhawan’s next directorial venture Coolie No. 1. As the title suggests itself, the movie is the remake of the 1995 comic-caper Coolie No. 1, featuring Govinda and Karishma Kapoor in lead roles.

Confirming the news, writer Farhad Samji said, “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.”

There were some rumours that the film would be a sequel to the original film. However, Samji denied that the movie was a sequel. He said it will be “an adaptation in a new format” with “plenty of humour and colour, larger-than-life songs”.

Varun Dhawan is presently busy promoting his upcoming film Kalank. Sara Ali Khan, on the other hand, is shooting for her third movie which is untitled. It is rumoured that the movie is a sequel to the Imtiaz Ali-directed Love Aaj Kal. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) fame Kartik Aaryan is playing her love interest in the flick.
