A few days ago, the highly-awaited trailer of Coolie No. 1 starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan was unveiled. Directed by David Dhawan, the upcoming film is a rendition of the iconic 1995 Govinda-Karisma Kapoor starrer family comedy.
During the press interaction on Saturday, Sara Ali Khan revealed a hilarious moment from the sets of the film when David Dhawan got angry at her. “We were filming ‘Main Toh Raste Se’ when David sir got upset with me and shouted at me because, although I was ready for my shot, I was supposed to tag something on my costume and that was taking time”.
However, there was a reason for it and she blamed Varun Dhawan for it. “He was doing some costume business in the van and David sir got pretty upset at him as it was delaying the shoot. So basically, he was angry at Varun but vented on me. That was a bit of an issue, but it is all good,” she said.
“Working on Coolie No. 1 has really been a dream come true. One has grown up listening to songs like ‘Husn Hai Suhana’ and ‘Mirchi Lagi’, and it’s surreal that I now feature in the reprised versions of these songs! Working with Varun was an amazing experience, as not only is he an impeccable actor but he is also an extremely considerate, helpful, and motivating friend who always has your back on set. Of course, working with David Sir was a sheer privilege as I truly believe he’s the king of this commercial, masala, family comedy genre. Every day on set was a riot of fun, while at the same time one got to learn so much just by watching actors like Paresh sir, Rajpal sir, Johnny Sir, Bharti Maam, Javed Sir, and even Saahil and Shikha. I’m so grateful to Jackie and Vashu Sir for giving me this opportunity, and supporting us so much through this film! I really am excited for this film to release, and I sincerely hope that we’re able to spread happiness and some much-needed Christmas cheer with this movie” said Sara Ali Khan.
Coolie No. 1 stars Paresh Rawal, Javed Jaffrey, Johnny Lever, Rajpal Yadav amongst others, and is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, and Deepshikha Deshmukh. Bringing festive cheer this Christmas, Coolie No. 1 will premiere exclusively on December 25, 2020, on Amazon Prime Video.
