Earlier in an interview to PTI, Varun said that ‘when we do something like this, the idea is that the essence has to be the same. But at the same time, the film is completely different. It is an adaptation, it is not a remake. But the title is the same.’ He added that ‘work is on for Coolie No 1. The shoot will start in August-September.’
In another interview, he had said that he just wants to try and bring back the fun that they had while watching Govinda’s Coolie No. 1. That is why his father (David Dhawan) is also ready to do it. He has changed a lot of things. He has challenged himself also. He is the only one who knows the sur for this kind of film.
The 1995 movie was one of the most successful collaborations between Govinda and David Dhawan. The comedy also starred Karisma Kapoor, Shakti Kapoor, Kader Khan, and Sadashiv Amrapurkar. The movie’s plot revolves around a con, in which a matchmaker teaches an arrogant businessman a lesson by passing off a railway coolie as the heir to a fortune.
Varun Dhawan was last seen in Kalank opposite Alia Bhatt. It was a multi-starrer. While the movie sank at the box office, but the actor’s acting was appreciated by the critics. Varun will be next seen in Remo D’Souza directorial Street Dancer 3D. It is the third film in ABCD franchise. However, Sara Ali Khan was last seen opposite Ranveer Singh in Simmba.
