Due to COVID-19, we saw many films getting affected and as a result, they had to delay the release dates due to the lockdown phase across the country. And among them was Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan starrer Coolie No 1, which was scheduled to release on May 1 but was postponed at the box office due to the global crisis of coronavirus. The latest reports suggest that the makers are planning to release the film on New Year 2021. Though the official announcement of this news is yet to made.
As per the sources, there will be plenty of twists in the rebooted version as Varun Dhawan is playing Mithun Chakraborty’s fan in the comic caper. “Varun is a great mimic himself and his favourites are Mithun da, Akshay (Kumar) and Salman (Khan). He has done take-offs on them on public platforms. Of course, doing it on the big screen required multiple workshops and reading sessions,” informed the source.
The makers have recreated one of the iconic tracks from Coolie No 1 for the remake, which is Mein Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha. It is composed by Tanishk Bagchi. Talking about the track, director David Dhawan said, “It is an important song for our film, and it has heart. But times have changed so I am going to picturise it very differently with Varun and Sara.” Recalling about the original track, David said. “We found a place in Bangalore with lot of Bhel Puri stalls and had the lead pair (Govinda and Karisma) strolling through it, exploring ‘Mumbai’. I thought it was the best way to capture the essence of the Maximum City back then.” Well, this song will definitely make noise among the college kids.
