David Dhawan’s reboot of his 1995 classic comedy Coolie No. 1 featuring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan has been making headlines ever since it was announced. But now if the industry rumour mill is anything to go by it is being speculated that the film, originally slated to release on the 1st of May, 2020 will now be pushed.
Yes, you read that! While the makers have maintained that the final decision will be taken only after things come slightly under control, a certain source has been quoted saying, “The call will be taken only after the situation gets back to normal. But it is definitely not arriving on May 1 now. Maybe June, July or even later, depending on when the scare subsides. The producers of all the big films will come together to chalk out a release calendar for the second half of 2020.”
The source has further revealed to Mumbai Mirror that while the makers of the film have given plenty of twists to the original script of the film, the Tapori style of Govinda in the original film has been retained to keep the charm of the film alive.
Well, Coolie No.1 has joined the list of several Bollywood flicks like Sooryavanshi, ’83, and Hollywood films like Fast and Furious 9 whose releases have been pushed owing to the ongoing pandemic, COVID-19 aka Coronavirus.
Coolie No. 1 originally released in 1995 featured Govinda, Karishma Kapoor, Kader Khan and Tiku Talsania among other veteran actors.
