Remakes, remixes and reboots seem to be Bollywood’s newfound addiction this season. Right from recreating iconic songs like Aakhiyon Se Goli, to Aankh Maarey and Hawa Hawai 2.0, to remaking classics like Satte Pe Satta and Agneepath. And now, the latest to join the Bandwagon is filmmaker David Dhawan, who is remaking his own 1995 comedy, Coolie No. 1.
While the original film featured the ever green pair of Govinda and Karishma Kapoor, the remake will feature David Dhawan’s son and actor Varun Dhawan alongside Sara Ali Khan. While the youth is super excited to see two of the best new-gen actors coming together, there are many who are wondering if Varun and Sara would be able to do justice to the chemistry that Govinda and Karishma were famous for!
Now, the man himself, David Dhawan has broken his silence on the comparisons and said that though he is remaking his own film, there should be no reason to compare both the films and pairs because they are from different times zone and different backgrounds.
Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, David Dhawan has been quoted saying, “Govinda and Karisma created magic on screen. No one can equal them. No one should even try. Varun and Sara are in a completely different zone, freed of the burden of trying to be like their predecessors.”
He further went on to say, “Agreed I am remaking my own film. So there will be comparisons. But what I’m saying is, the two pairs belong to different eras. It’s like comparing a Bentley with a Porsche. They are not comparable.”
Meanwhile, the 1995 comedy featured Govinda, Karishma Kapooor, Kader Khan, Shakti Kapoor and Tiku Talsania in pivotal roles.
