Mumbai: Actor Shikha Talsania is all set to share screen space with Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan in Coolie No. 1. The movie is a remake of the 1995 original of the same name, which featured Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead. Shikha, who has movies such as Wake Up! Sid, Dil To Bacha Hai Ji and Veere Di Wedding to her credit, said she is excited to work on the project, which will be helmed by the original film’s director, David Dhawan.

“Being a part of a David Dhawan film is on every actor’s bucket list and I am no different. And to top that with an opportunity to collaborate with such fantastic actors and people — Varun and Sara — I said yes without batting an eyelid,” she said in a statement. The actor said she will be playing a character who is completely different from the one she portrayed in Veere Di Wedding. “After Veere Di Wedding, the audience will see me in a totally new lens and that’s what makes it more exciting than it already is. I am also thrilled to partner with Pooja Films who are making sure we have an absolute blast at the shoot and I am sure that fun will translate beautifully on screen,” she added.

Coolie No. 1 is being produced by David, Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani and Deepshikha Deshmukh, and presented by Pooja Entertainment. The film is set to release on 1 May 2020. It looks like David Dhawan is on a remake spree, trying to cash in on the success of his creations of the 1990s. Earlier, he had remade Judwaa, whose original featured Salman Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Shakti Kapoor and Rambha, featuring his son Varun. Now, the remake of Coolie No. 1 has Varun too, again in the lead role.

The plot of the Govinda-led movie had the protagonist taking his father-in-law, played by Kadar Khan, who nursed a dream of getting his daughter married to a rich man, for a ride. As in the case of Judwaa, the storyline is not expected to be altered in the remake of Coolie No. 1 either. However, with the evolution in filmmaking technology as well as audience taste, the production value of the new film could be higher.
