The shooting of Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan’s Coolie No 1, which is a remake of David Dhawan’s hit film starring Govinda and Karisma Kapoor, has come to a shocking turn after a fire broke out on the sets. As per reports, the accident occurred at around 1 am on Wednesday. Reportedly, the flames caught up but fortunately, didn’t harm or injure the 15 workers who were on set at the time of the fire. The crew members later called the fire brigade and police after it was all ablaze. Timely help was aviled and the fire was put out timely. No casualties have been reported and we couldn’t be more thankful.
Produced by Vashu Bhagnani, the remake of the classic comic-caper will release on May 1 next year and will bring the fun and fresh pairing of Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan.
Recently, Varun had dropped the veil that the remake is very much happening and will be helmed by DD (as he fondly calls his dad) himself. Reportedly, Just like Judwaa 2, the makers of the Coolie No 1 remake are recreating two iconic songs from the film, which are Main Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha and Husn Hai Suhana. The producers have said that they will not remix these songs as they are still popular today among the masses.”
Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan will be next seen in Street Dancer 3D. Directed by Remo D’Souza, the film also stars Shraddha Kapoor, Prabhudheva, Nora Fatehi, Sonam Bajwa, Shakti Mohan, Vartika Jha, Dharmesh Yelande, Punit Pathak and Raghav Juyal in key roles. The film will be shot in 3D and converted to 4DX later. It is scheduled to release on January 24, 2020. It is produced by Bhushan Kumar under his banner T-Series. Sara, on the other hand, will also be seen alongside Kartik Aaryan in Imtiaz Ali’s Aaj Kal. It is all slated to hit the screens on February 14, 2020 during the Valentine’s Day weekend.
