The 1995 Coolie No.1 (which was also helmed by David) starred Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in lead roles, along with actors Kader Khan, Shakti Kapoor and Sadashiv Amrapurkar in significant roles. The film featured some iconic songs, including ‘Husn Hai Suhana’ and ‘Main Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha’, which became immensely popular owing to Govinda's unique dancing style and eccentric dressing sense.
Nostalgic & Excited !! We complete 25 years at @poojafilms. Extremely Happy to announce the adaptation of our first film #CoolieNo1 with my favorite David uncle, my brother @Varun_dvn & #SaraAliKhan! Cannot wait for this mad journey to begin!!
