Few days ago, it was reported that actor Varun Dhawan would star in the remake of one of 90’s movie ‘Coolie No.1’.

During a recent interview, actor Varun Dhawan stated that the new movie is not a remake but the essence of the original film will be retained. 

"When we do something like this the idea is that the essence has to be the same. But at the same time, the film is completely different. It is not a remake, it is an adaptation. But the title is the same," Varun told PTI.

The actor says the film is currently in the scripting stage. "Work is on for 'Coolie No 1'. The shoot will start in August-September."

The remake will be directed by Varun Dhawan’s father, David Dhawan, who also helmed the original movie.

The movie will also star Sara Ali Khan as the female lead.

The other news doing rounds currently is that Varun Dhawan will soon reunite with his ‘Badlapur’ director Sriram Raghavan.

When asked about the same Varun said, "He (Sriram) is one of the best directors we have. There is some talk happening, so let's see." 

The actor is currently busy promoting his next movie ‘Kalank’. Other than that Varun is currently working on Remo D’Souza dance film ‘Street Dancer’.
