Varun Dhawan slams report of a rift with father David Dhawan on ‘Coolie No 1’ release, says ‘you shouldn’t write on my behalf’


Varun Dhawan took to Twitter today to refute a news report that stated there is a rift between his filmmaker father David Dhawan and him. The report stated that the two are at loggerheads over how to release their film Coolie No.1.

Varun wrote that the publication should not fabricate news and write articles on his behalf. He wrote, “Maybe until I don’t give you an interview you shouldn’t write on my behalf sir,” he wrote and added a ‘folded hands’ emoji.

The report stated that due to the delay in the film’s release in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, David was considering an OTT release. However, Varun is against the film’s release on the digital medium as he ‘doesn’t want to be labeled an OTT actor, at least not yet’.

Coolie No.1 is a remake of David’s 1995 hit film starring Govinda and Karisma Kapoor. The new version stars Varun opposite Sara Ali Khan. At least, with Varun’s denial one thing is clear that the film is not heading the OTT way anytime soon.
