Varun Dhawan’s Next Project To Be Announced On His Birthday, 2 Of The Chartbusters To Be Repeated

April 24 when  Varun Dhawan turns a year older, would be the  day when  the actor’s next film Coolie No 1  to be  directed by his father David Dhawan will be  officially launched.

The entire Dhawan  clan including Varun’s girlfriend is  expected to  appear  together on  one stage for  the occasion.

Says a  source,  “On Varun’s birthday details  on his next film Coolie No  1 will be  announced.”

The original  Coolie No 1  Govinda is also expected to be present to grace  the occasion.But considering how moody Govinda  sounds about his relations with David Dhawan we wonder  if he  will turn  up.

Here are some  details of  the newly-revamped remake that  will be revealed officially  on April 24.  Varun plays a very hip  and trendy  coolie. According to a source close to  the project, “The red coolie’s  uniform that Govinda  and AmitabhBachchan wore in Coolie No 1  and Coolie are a thing of  the past. If you see the  coolies on Matunga station  of MumbaiCentral  they are dressed in  jeans and  T Shirt.Ditto Varun.”

Also  his character won’t spend much time on the railway station.  “Once it’s established  what Varun’s  profession is,  the  film will quickly move  to the comedy and drama  outside  the  railway  station.”

Sara Ali Khan  will be playinga  character  inspired  by  Karisma  Kapoor from the  orginal.  “She  will  play a feisty  outgoing  glib talker,  just like Karisma.”

Two  of  the  chartbusters  composed  by Anand-Milind for  the original  Coolie No 1 in 1995 will re-imagined  for the  remake. These are Husn hai suhana and Main to raste se ja raha tha.

Says a  source very close  to  the  project, “We plan to  keep the  original  songs as sung by  Abhijeet -Chandana  Dixit(Husnhai suhana) and Kumar Sanu-Alka Yagnik(Main to raste se jaa raha ttha) in the remake. Why should  David Dhawan  re-mix those hits when they are  popular  to this day?”
