Varun Dhawan ans Sara Ali Khan will be paired opposite each other in Coolie No. 1.

As per reports in The Indian Express, Varun had earlier said that he was the most enthused to act in an adaptation of Coolie No. 1 mainly because he thought the original was extremely entertaining. "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. It is not a remake."

Praising director David, Varun added that it was only his father who could completely understand the pulse of such "fun" films. Varun said that he wanted to bring family entertainment back on the silver screen with such films. This is the reason even David came on board the project, said Varun. The director has reportedly changed several things in the adapted version which challenge David's brand of film-making as well.
