And the most-awaited moment is here! On Varun Dhawan's birthday, the official words have come in and we couldn't be more thrilled. For those late to the party, we are talking about the Kalank actor stepping in Govinda's shoes for Coolie No 1 remake alongside the pretty starlet Sara Alia Khan. If you'd recall, we had told you exclusively how Sara, after her star debut and smashing hit in Kedarnath and Simmba, was the frontrunner for the role. There were also rumours about Varun Dhawan collaborating with daddy David Dhawan to revive his No 1 series when he had posted a birthday wish and wrote, "Can’t wait to get back on set with u #DD #NO1."
Well, seems like it is happening earlier than expected! In fact, as early as August when it is scheduled to go on floors. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to drop the bomb and shared, "IT’S OFFICIAL... After 25 years, David Dhawan and Vashu Bhagnani reunite to adapt their timeless comedy #CoolieNo1... Stars Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan... Shoot begins Aug 2019... #CoolieNo1 is David-Varun’s next collaboration, after the super successful #Judwaa2."
Recently, Varun had dropped the veil that the remake is very much happening and will be helmed by DD (as he fondly calls his dad) himself. When probed that the deed is done he exclaimed, "As I said it, I was like 'should I say it?' But I think it's come out so many places that yeah. Reportedly, Just like Judwaa 2, the makers of the Coolie No 1 remake are recreating two iconic songs from the film, which are Main Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha and Husn Hai Suhana. The producers have said that they will not remix these songs as they are still popular today among the masses."
Meanwhile, you can still catch Varun as Zafar in Kalank at the theatres where he is sharing the space with Alia Bhatt and a hoard of talented stars including Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha and Madhuri Dixit. On the other hand, Sara will be seen alongside Kartik Aaryan, her self-professed crush, in Imtiaz Ali's Love Aaj Kal 2. Recently, Sara had also shared a video with her co-star to celebrate the wrap of the film's schedule. Stay tuned to BL for more updates and scoop!
