Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan will be seen reprising Govinda and Karisma Kapoor’s roles in Coolie No 1 reboot which is being helmed by David Dhawan again. The announcement of the film was made back in April with a photo of the coolie badge which was shared on social media by Varun. Now, the shooting of the film is all set to get kicked off in the coming months and ahead of that, the role played by later Kader Khan needed to be filled. Late Kader Khan was seen as Karisma Kapoor’s father, Hoshiyar Chand in the previous film. 

As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Paresh Rawal has been roped in to play Sara Ali Khan’s father in the reboot of Coolie No 1. The report also stated that Paresh Rawal will be seen as Hoshiyar Chand and the comic element will revolve around his character. However, there will be tweaks to his role based on the fact the Varun and Sara’s film will be based in modern time. Also, the shoot will kick off in August in the capital of Thailand, Bangkok.

As per the report, “After wrapping up the overseas shoot, the team flies to Goa to finish another big schedule of the film. He plays the role of Sara’s father, Hoshiyar Chand, Hoshiyar Chand, and the humour in the film revolves around his part. While the role in the original film was more in the orthodox zone, the new one has been tweaked as per modern sensibilities.” Also, the shoot of the film will go on in the foreign city for 20 days and the second lead who will be playing Sara’s sister in the film is still being searched for. As per several reports, Disha Patani is in the race for the part.

Meanwhile, the comedy film will have the same storyline as the 1994-film which starred Govinda and Karisma Kapoor. However, the screenplay of the film will be tweaked to be set in modern times. Varun and Sara are excited to shoot the film. Director David Dhawan is also looking forward to returning to his ‘No 1’ franchise. Coolie No 1 is slated to release on May 1, 2020. In the meantime, Sara Ali Khan is shooting for Imtiaz Ali's next with Kartik Aaryan while Varun Dhawan is gearing for Remo D'souza's dance film, Street Dancer 3D.
