Varun Dhawan to work with father David Dhawan in ‘Coolie No 1’s remake?
Bollywood star Varun Dhawan is one actor, who is a livewire both on and off the screen. The ‘Badlapur’ actor is going from strength to strength. Varun in 2018 stepped out of his comfort zone and did films like ‘October’ and ‘Sui Dhaaga’. With both the films he has once again proved his acting prowess.
Varun is now already working on Dharma Productions’ ‘Kalank’. Now according to a report in DNA, the Dhawans (Varun, David Dhawan and Varun’s brother Rohit) are going to set up their production house and their maiden production venture will be the remake of David’s 1995 film ‘Coolie No 1‘. Many film critics and experts have pointed out that Varun shares an uncanny resemblance with Govinda with respect to his comic timing.
The report further states that ‘Biwi No 1’ was also in the consideration but the trio eventually decided on remaking the Govinda and Karisma Kapoor-starrer ‘Coolie No 1‘. ‘Biwi No 1’ had Karisma Kapoor and Salman Khan in lead roles alongside Tabu and Anil Kapoor.
A source quoted by the publication saying, “They will also be producing the film along with Vashu Bhagnani, who backed the original. While David will direct the film, his elder son Rohit will oversee the production from their side. The family plans to establish their production house with Rohit at the helm.”
The father-son duo i.e. David and Varun have already worked in two films together. The celebrated filmmaker has directed his son in ‘Main Tera Hero‘ and ‘Judwaa 2’. And both the films were greatly appreciated by audiences and did quite good business at the box office.
We certainly hope that Varun and David Dhawan give us a hat-trick by making the remake of iconic and cult comedy film ‘Coolie No 1’.
