And it is raining remakes and reboots in Bollywood. Right from Judwaa to Love Aaj Kal and most recently Pati Patni Aur Woh; if the rumor mill is anything to go buy it is being believed that the epic 1995 Govinda comedy ‘Coolie No.1' is all set to be remade in a contemporary Bollywood style.

 
What's more is that the remake will apparently have Gen-Y's hit machine Varun Dhawan reprising the role of Govinda and Bollywood's newest gold mine Sara Ali Khan.

 A source close to these developments has revealed to a 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 Dhawan's felt Sara would be apt for it."


Well, the Govinda-Karishma Kapoor starrer ‘Coolie No.1' was one of the biggest jackpots for David Dhawan and the actors of the film. And now; Varun, who is also starting his own production house under the name of The One Entertainment, wants to get the banner rolling with one of his father's biggest hits! And rightly so


It is also believed that the makers had approached Sara much before her big ticket debut in Abhishek Kapur's Kedarnath alongside Sushant Singh Rajput. 


The source further revealed," 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 modernize 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."


The informer also added," He is almost done with Kalank and begins work on Remo D'souza's dance film on January 22. He will wrap it up by April and plans to start work on Coolie No.1 around July. His and Sara's bulk dates have been locked. The team is eyeing a festival release in the first half of 2020."


For those living under the rock; the ‘Judwaa 2' actor has just wrapped his shoot for the multi starrer Kalank and will not start shooting for Remo D'souza's next dance flick. Wow! That certainly will have Varun working round the clock to complete all his work commitments.


Meanwhile, Sara's second release which was Rohit Shetty's Simmba has done exceedingly well and it is rumored that Sara will now be seen in the sequel to Imtiaz Ali's ‘Love Aaj Kal' sequel.
