Kedarnath actor Sara Ali Khan will be seen opposite Varun Dhawan on the big screen. According to reports, the duo will star in the remake of Coolie No.1.
Varun Dhawan is one of the most talented actors in Bollywood currently and on the other hand, we have Sara Ali Khan, who has given two hits back to back with Kedarnath and Simmba.
Sara made an impressive debut with Kedarnath and her latest film Simmba has been doing wonders at the box office. According to DNA, Sara will star in the remake of Coolie No.1 along with Varun. Just a few weeks ago, on Karan Johar's chat show, Sara had said that she dreams of seeing herself on the big screen with Varun Dhawan. And, voila! her dream comes true.
The 90s blockbuster Coolie No. 1 is considered a cult comedy made by David Dhawan, which features Karisma Kapoor and Govinda. In the film, Karisma's father gets her married off to a porter (coolie), under the assumption that he is a wealthy person.
A source told the leading daily, “Varun and Sara will share screen space in the former’s first home production. David Dhawan will direct it. This will be the first film to roll out under their banner The One Entertainment. The team wanted a new jodi for the comedy and the Dhawans felt Sara would be apt for it.”
According to the same report, Sara was offered this role much before she made her debut with Kedarnath. The source added, “They were in talks for some time and had approached her even before Kedarnath hit the marquee. The idea is to adapt the original and renew it. Sara will step into Karisma’s shoes, but the makers are changing the character sketch
