Ever since celebrated filmmaker David Dhawan announced a reboot of his own 1995 superhit, Coolie No. 1 alongside Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan, fans can’t keep calm. While a certain section of cine-goers is excited, another was skeptical if Varun and Sara could live up to the original film.
Varun, who is currently going all out for the promotions of him upcoming Street Dancer 3D has given out an interesting piece of news about the Coolie No.1 remake. The Student Of The Year actor has said that the film is more of an adaptation to the original film.
Speaking to Mumbai Mirror in his latest interview, Varun has said that he and Sara have tried their best to recreate the magic that Karishma Kapoor and Govinda created with the original film. “It’s a film for this generation though we have retained the screenplay, which was brilliant. Sara and I are trying to do what our seniors (Govinda and Karishma Kapoor) did in the original, under David Dhawan’s direction. It’s been a crazy ride. It’s not a remake actually, but more of an adaptation.”
