Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan is on a roll these days as he is delivering back to back super hits in Bollywood. This is no secret that the actor will next feature in Coolie No. 1 remake and fans have been waiting to see him step into the shoes of Govinda. Also, the actor will be paired opposite Sara Ali Khan which has left the fans even more excited. Like the original, the new film will be directed by Varun’s dad David Dhawan and will be written by Farhad Samji.
While talking to Bollywood Hungama, Farhad Samji revealed interesting details about Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan starrer Coolie No. 1 remake. He said, “People who have seen Coolie No. 1 already know the basic plotline of the film, so we’re adapting that storyline. But there are some aspects in the story that if the movie is releasing in 2020 or 2021, then according to that the freshness required and the factor to get the audiences hooked, keeping logic in mind.”
“The thing about Coolie No. 1 is that it is a totally performance oriented film. Obviously, Govinda rocked the role and he was like a one man army. So as I was saying, when writing for Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff, we have to keep their strengths and weaknesses in mind. So when I write for Varun Dhawan, I have to keep his strengths in mind as well. So there are times when we have to make changes in the scenes keeping the storyline in mind we try to put in more characters. We try to upgrade the story line by adding today’s generation’s aspects in mind. I think the casting also helps a lot, if you see Varun and Sara now, half your work is done there. The casting is not completed yet so we’re yet on the lookout for the third lead,” he added.
Coolie No 1 is the much-awaited project of Varun Dhawan and the actor himself has said earlier that it is not a remake of the original 1995 film but an adaptation of it. Varun last worked with his father David Dhawan in Bollywood film Judwaa 2 which exploded at the box office and earned crores.
Currently, Varun Dhawan is shooting for Remo D’souza directorial Street Dancer.
