However, many fans have been comparing the film with the original one. But not many know that the original movie starring the hit jodi, Govinda and Karisma Kapoor was also a remake. Yes, the original 1995 movie, Coolie No. 1 is the remake of 1993 Tamil movie, Chinna Mapillai. As per reports in The Hans India, the makers have once again adapted bits from the Tamil movie, in the upcoming 2020 film, Coolie No. 1.
Chinna Mapillai starrer Prabhu and Sukanya in lead roles. The film had received a good response from the audience. Sivaranjani, Radha Ravi, Visu, Vinu Chakravarthy, Anand and others were also a part of film. The film was a huge success and hence it was also remade in Telugu titled Chinna Alludu and in Kannada as Coolie Raja. Earlier, Sara Ali Khan had spoken about copying Karisma Kapoor for Coolie No. 1 in an interview with IANS. Sara says stepping into the shoes of Karisma Kapoor is "not possible". "She is an iconic star. She redefines the nineties for most audiences. So I don't think I have even attempted to step into her shoes. Of course, it is a remake and comparisons are inevitable. Up until now I was so much more focussed bringing something new to the table. Everything is kind of tweaked to make it more today," she said.
She added, "It's been some years since then. Things have changed. I think instead of aping or trying to copy Karisma, which is impossible to do, we have tried to bring a freshness to the role. I enjoyed working with Varun, so it is that chemistry for me that's in the film at opposed to trying to copy Karisma Kapoor because that wouldn't be fun and wouldn't be possible."
