It is comedy doyen David Dhawan’s 45th film. It also marks 25 years of heritage production house Pooja Entertainment that began its journey in 1995 with, yes, ‘Coolie No. 1’ starring Govinda and Karisma Kapoor.
New Delhi: The trailer of Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan starrer ‘Coolie No. I’ is still trending on the top spot on social media and has garnered over 50 million views in just two days across all platforms including YouTube, IGTV and Twitter.
Fans are thrilled to see a rebooted version of the classic comedy of errors with a coolie assuming the identity of a millionaire to woo his girl-friend and impress her obsessively status-conscious father.
Fans have particularly liked the nostalgic references to the hit tunes of the original cult-classic that was also directed by David Dhawan and produced by Pooja entertainment.
The comic timing of Varun has been hugely appreciated and the quirks of Johnny Lever, Javed Jaffrey, Paresh Rawal, and Rajpal Yadav have inspired countless tweets, memes, and hilarious comments.
The film is expected to stream on Amazon Prime on December 25 but with partial relaxations in place, exhibitors are keen to break the long silence in their theatres with a triumphant premiere.
