Fans were quick to drop their comments and reveal that they are quite excited about the film.
Earlier in the week, Varun shared a funny video about getting a shave done. In the clip, he revealed that he is getting ready for Coolie No 1 and shaving his beard so that he becomes Raju, the coolie in the film.
The original film, which starred Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead, was directed by Varun’s father and filmmaker David Dhawan.
David will also direct the upcoming film, which will be produced by Vashu Bhagnani who bankrolled the 1995 classic. Jackky Bhagnani and Deepshikha Deshmukh will also serve as producers. The movie also stars Sara Ali Khan in the lead.
Coolie No 1 is expected to hit cinemas on 1 May, 2020.
