Varun Dhawan to romance Sara Ali Khan in ‘Coolie No 1’ remake

Varun Dhawan is paired opposite Sara Ali Khan in ‘Coolie No 1’ remake. The original film starred Govinda and Karisma Kapoor and was helmed by David Dhawan.

Two hit tracks from the prequel will be incorporated in the remake. They are Main Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha and Husn Hai Suhana. "We plan to keep the original songs in the remake. Why should David Dhawan re-mix those hits when they are popular to this day?" the source was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, as per the Bollywood Hungama report, Varun's coolie look will be unlike that of Govinda's. look."The red coolie's uniform that Govinda and Amitabh Bachchan wore in Coolie No 1 and Coolie, respectively are a thing of the past. If you see the coolies on Matunga station of Mumbai Central they are dressed in jeans and t-shirt. Ditto Varun," the source said.

Varun was directed by his father in movies like ‘Judwaa 2’ and ‘Main Tera Hero’ and this will be his third film with his father.

On the work front, Varun will next be seen in multi-starrer project ‘Kalank’.
