Locations have always played a very pivotal role in Bollywood films. There was a time when Switzerland was the favourite destination for filmmakers to shoot a Hindi film. However, now the filmmakers are trying to explore new locations. Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan starrer Collie No. 1 will be shot at a location where no other Bollywood film has been shot yet.
The David Dhawan directorial will be shot in Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan. Talking to a daily, David Dhawan, who is there for the recce, said, “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?”
While Coolie No. 1 was shot in India, it will be interesting to see how the storyline of the remake will shift to Baku.
This will be for the second time when David Dhawan will be remaking his own film with his son Varun Dhawan. Earlier, the father-son duo had collaborated for Judwaa 2. Reportedly, songs like Husn Hai Suhana and Main Toh Raste Jaa Raha Tha from the original will be recreated in the remake.
We are sure fans of Varun and Sara are excited to see them on the big screen together. The movie is slated to hit the screens in May next year.
