Varun Dhawan’s ‘Coolie No. 1’ to be announced on his birthday, two chartbuster songs to be retained
April 24, when Varun Dhawan turns a year older, would be the day when the actor’s next film Coolie No. 1 to be directed by his father David Dhawan will be officially launched. The entire Dhawan family including Varun’s girlfriend is expected to appear together on one stage for the occasion. Says a source, “On Varun’s birthday details on his next film Coolie No 1 will be announced.”
The original Coolie No 1 Govinda is also expected to be present to grace the occasion. But considering how moody Govinda sounds about his relations with David Dhawan, we wonder if he will turn up.
Sara Ali Khan will be playing a character inspired by Karisma Kapoor from the original. “She will play a feisty outgoing glib talker, just like Karisma.” Two of the chartbusters composed by Anand-Milind for the original Coolie No 1 in 1995 will re-imagined for the remake. These are ‘Husn Hai Suhana’ and ‘Main To Raste Se Ja Raha Tha’.
Says a source very close to the project, “We plan to keep the original songs as sung by Abhijeet -Chandana Dixit (‘Husn Hai Suhana’) and Kumar Sanu-Alka Yagnik (‘Main To Raste Se Jaa Raha Ttha’) in the remake.
