The official remake will be directed by David Dhawan himself and the film will be led by Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan. The remake has been buzzing around the town since the time it was announced and every now and then updates related to the film makes it to headlines.
After Johnny Lever's entry in the Coolie No. 1 remake, now actor Rajpal Yadav has also joined the cast of the film. "I'm thankful to David Dhawan sir and Varun for giving an opportunity to be a part of Coolie No. 1 remake. This is the third time that I'm acting with Varun. I am really excited about this remake," Rajpal said in an interaction with IANS.
"Ram Gopal Varmaji's 'Jungle' established me as an actor, Priyadarshan sir's 'Hungama' made me popular, and David sir re-established me with 'Judwaa 2'. So, I'm grateful for this opportunity," the actor further added.
Rajpal had earlier worked with Varun in films like Judwaa 2 and Main Tera Hero. Both films were helmed by David Dhawan.
