Actor Varun Dhawan took to Instagram to announce the release date of his upcoming film, Coolie No. 1, with dad David Dhawan
Mumbai: The 1995 hit rom-com Coolie No. 1, which featured Govinda and Karishma Kapoor, will be remade by David Dhawan. The remake will release on May 1, 2020 and will star Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan.
Varun took to Instagram to share a picture from Coolie No. 1 and wrote, "Aj ka Din , Agle Saal. Aega Coolie No.1 - Hoga Kamaal !!! Coolie No.1 releases on May 1, 2020."
The actor shared the photograph of his coolie badge that read: "W. RLY. No 1 Licensed Porter".
The original movie also had the same name and was also directed by Varun's father, filmmaker David Dhawan.
In an earlier interview to PTI, Varun said, "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 not a remake, it is an adaptation. But the title is the same."
He added, "Work is on for Coolie No 1. The shoot will start in August-September." The original film was one of the most successful collaborations between David and Govinda.
On the work front, Varun was last seen in Kalank opposite Alia Bhatt. While the film sank at the box office, Varun's acting was appreciated by the critics and audiences.
The actor will be next seen in Remo D'Souza directorial Street Dancer 3D, which is the third film in ABCD franchise. On the other hand, Sara was last seen in Simmba opposite Ranveer Singh, which was a superhit.
