David Dhawan and son Varun Dhawan are all set for their third collaboration. They have teamed up for the remake of Govinda and Karisma Kapoor’s hit flick Coolie No. 1. The 1995 movie was also directed by David. Interestingly, if reports are to be believed then Sara Ali Khan has been roped in to star opposite Varun in the romantic comedy.
Sara, who made her Bollywood debut last year with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath, has already become everyone’s favourite. The diva’s latest release Simmba is also performing well at the box office and has also bagged her a lot of praise.
Recently, a source stated, “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 source further said that Sara was offered this part much before she made her debut with Kedarnath. “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.”
