David Dhawan's upcoming rom-com Coolie No.1 is one of the highly awaited films of 2020. Starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan, the film has generated curiosity amongst fans with its interesting posters that were released a few months ago. The film is a remake of the 1995 Coolie No. 1 which featured Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in lead roles. Now, as the film is gearing up for a Christmas release on Amazon Prime Video, the makers have released the exciting trailer.
The trailer begins with Paresh Rawal flaunting how his daughter (Sara Ali Khan) has got the world's richest man who is the owner of the tallest building in the world Burj Khalifa and can also buy the White House. Varun Dhawan is then introduced to us as Richie rich, showing off his wealth. He hilariously jokes, "I am on a conference call with ATM - Ambani, Trump, Modi." Varun and Sara soon get married and when Sara returns to India, her father Paresh sees Varun as a coolie named Raju. The confusion begins as Raju gets along with Sara's sister Shikha Talsania. The trailer offers bags full of dhamaal, laughter, and entertainment.
Special mention to Paresh Rawal for his epic comic timing and screen presence. Javed Jafferi as Varun's father also steals the limelight. The trailer also shows two recreated songs Husn Hai Suhana and Main Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha. The originals featured Govinda and Karisma Kapoor and are one of the most iconic songs in the Hindi cinema.
About the film, Varun said, “I have always loved the screenplay and the performances in the original Coolie No. 1. That's one of the reasons this adaptation of the classic is so special to me. The preparation for this role was a great ride. As an actor, the humour play was a lot of fun to do. I had a wonderful experience working with Sara, who is extremely talented. We had an amazing time shooting for this film across exciting locations. I am very happy that viewers across the world will be able to enjoy Christmas with Coolie No. 1 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.”
The film is scheduled to release on December 25, 2020. It is directed by David Dhawan and produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani and Deepshikha Deshmukh. Apart from Sara and Varun, Coolie No. 1 features Paresh Rawal, Shikha Talsania, Johnny Lever, Jaaved Jaaferi and Rajpal Yadav in important roles. It was earlier scheduled to release in theatres on May 1 this year but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
