This is a producer-director combination that could most comfortably be certified as the entertainment industry’s Jodi no.1. Producer Vashu Bhagnani and director David Dhawan were in a collaboration for 14 years . It started with Coolie No 1 in 1995. And now 24 years later they are again collaborating over a remake of the same name.
However with the sunshine comes the rain. A report suggests that Vashu and David have had a fall-out as Vashu wants his son Jackkie Bhagnani to play the lead in the Coolie No 1 remake instead of Varun Dhawan.
While Vashu Bhagnani has dismissed the report as “baseless” David Dhawan brushes of any suggestion of a rift with his long-standing creative partner.
Says David, “There is absolutely no differences between us. Vashu and I have known one another for more than 25 years. We’ve always been on the same page.”
That should kill all the rumours of a rift between Vashu and David. For those who came in late, David Dhawan directed a series of films for Vashu Bhagnani . After Coolie No 1 (1995) , they teamed up for Hero No 1, Gharwali Baharwali, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Biwi No1 , Shadi No 1 and Do Not Disturb.
