Confirmed: Varun Dhawan to romance Sara Ali Khan in ‘Coolie No.1’ adaptation
Sara Ali Khan won everyone’s heart even before making her Bollywood debut. Yes, Sara appeared alongside father Saif Ali Khan on Karan Johar‘s popular chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’. With her witty answers and sass, she made everyone swoon over her.
Her debut film ‘Kedarnath’ too earned her rave reviews from the audience and the critics alike. And now she is on a roll. After starring opposite Ranveer Singh in ‘Simmba’ and bagging Imtiaz Ali’s next, Sara is now all set to romance Varun Dhawan in ‘Coolie No.1’ adaptation.
Varun’s filmmaker father David Dhawan is all set to make an adaptation of the Govinda-Karisma Kapoor starrer ‘Coolie No. 1’ and Farhad Samji is writing the film’s dialogues. Confirming that Sara is on board for this film, Samji told Mumbai Mirror, “It is a boon for any writer to work with a dedicated actor like Varun. I narrated the dialogue draft to him recently and he immediately asked me for a copy, so he could rehearse his lines even though there is still time for the film to go on the floors. I am looking forward to teaming up with Sara for the second time.”
Samji had earlier also written the dialogues of the Rohit Shetty directorial ‘Simmba’, so this is the second time that he will be working with Sara on a film. Interestingly, the writer also revealed that this film is neither going to be a remake nor a sequel. It’s more of an adaptation as the film has been written keeping the sensibilities of today’s audience in mind.
Mounted on lavish scales, the film will have larger-than-life songs. Reportedly, the film will go on floors in July and release during Eid next year.
So guys, aren’t you all excited to watch Varun romance Sara on the silver screen?
