Varun Dhawan is surely one of the bankable stars we have in Bollywood and Sara Ali Khan has given two hits back to back. She made an impressive debut with Kedarnath and her latest film Simmba has been doing wonders at the box office. What if these two actors collaborate for a project? Yes, you heard it right! According to DNA, Sara will star in the remake of Coolie No.1 along with Varun. Coolie. No. 1 is considered a cult comedy with 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. It will be directed by David Dhawan, who had also helmed the original. 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.” The report suggests that 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 modernise it. The 23-year-old will step into Karisma’s shoes, but the makers are changing the character sketch a bit and making it even more prominent in the remake.”
Just a while back, on Karan Johar’s chat show, Sara had said that she dreams of seeing herself on the big screen with Varun Dhawan.
