The original film revolves around a matchmaker who is humiliated by one of his clients when he brings a rishta for his daughter. This client only wants to marry his daughter into a rich family. To teach him a lesson, the matchmaker contacts a coolie named Raju and asks him to pretend to be from a rich family. What ensues is chaos, drama, and lots of fun.
Talking about Coolie No. 1, Varun said, “Why I wanted to do this film is because when I watched Coolie No 1, I was so entertained. I had such a good time watching it. It is a family film. It is one of the funniest and most entertaining films I have ever watched. It has an amazing screenplay and starred brilliant actors. We are adapting it.”
The cast and crew have started filming in Bangkok and Thailand on 7th August, and we’re so excited for what’s in store. Here’s a fun fact you should also know – The remake of Coolie No. 1 will be David Dhawan’s 45th film. Produced by Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment, this film is slated to hit the big screen on 1st May 2020.
