After months of speculating, filmmaker David Dhawan finally announced his next with son Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan, remaking his cult Coolie No. 1 which starred Govinda and Karisma Kapoor. This one will also star Paresh Rawal who will fill in the space for Kader Khan’s character.
Now according to the latest development, the film will have the original track- Main Toh Raaste Se Jaa Raha Tha.
According to Mumbai Mirror, the new version will be composed by Tanishk Bagchi. Senior Dhawan has said that the essence from the original song will be reprised. He said, “It is an important song for our film, and it has heart. But times have changed so I am going to picturise it very differently with Varun and Sara.”
David also spoke about the original song and how it was shot. “We found a place in Bangalore with lot of Bhel Puri stalls and had the lead pair (Govinda and Karisma) strolling through it, exploring ‘Mumbai’. I thought it was the best way to capture the essence of the Maximum City back then.”
He also said that the song is a fun number and it will show Varun and Sara’s bond in the film. “It’s a fun song, showing the growing bond between the couple.”
The shoot of the film will start from August 5 in Bangkok.
