Coolie No 1 Remake: This Varun Dhawan-Sara Ali Khan Starrer Finds Its Villain In Vikas Verma
David Dhawan’s upcoming film which is a reboot of the 1995 film Coolie No 1 and stars Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles is a much-awaited film. The film’s posters were recently unveiled and got the fans really excited to see Sara and Varun on screen for the first time. In this reboot, Varun Dhawan will be essaying Govinda’s part, whereas Sara Ali Khan will play Karisma Kapoor’s role. While not much was known about the cast apart from this, we have now found out that the role of the villain will be reportedly played by Vikas Verma in Coolie No 1.

This is not the first time that actor Vikas Verma will be seen collaborating with filmmaker David Dhawan and actor Varun Dhawan. Even earlier, Vikas made a cameo appearance in the 2017 film Judwaa 2 and had worked with Varun and David Dhawan. Ever since, he had wanted to work with them in a full- fledged role and David Dhawan granted his wish. While talking to Hindustan Times, Vikas said, “When David sir called me in March and told me he has a part [for me] in a film he was making. I was too excited to ask anything else, and it was enough he had remembered me. Also, I had no idea it was for Coolie No 1 remake. But finally, it’s happening.” He also adds, “I had to beef up for the character. David sir wanted me to go bigger and sharper for the role as I play a baddie.” He also admits that he enjoys watching remakes, and shares, “Well, I love remakes when they’re made well. Such films are iconic and when they get remade well, it refreshes the memory… But this one is not a proper remake; it’s a different storyline and has more masala in it,”

Vikas Verma, who has also been a part of various films such as Mom and Raabta, told HT that he is a huge fan of Varun Dhawan and the latter is super cordial to his colleagues and cracks jokes. Vikas has already started shooting for the film in Thailand along with the lead stars Sara Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan.
