Actor-producer Jackky Bhagnani took to Twitter to announce: "Nostalgic and excited! We complete 25 years at Pooja Films. Extremely Happy to announce the adaptation of our first film Coolie No. 1 with my favourite David uncle, my brother Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan! Cannot wait for this mad journey to begin!"
The original film, which starred Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead, was directed by Varun's father and filmmaker David Dhawan.
David is returning to direct the new movie, which is produced by Vashu Bhagnani who also backed the 1995 film.
After Judwaa 2, which released in 2017, Coolie No.1 remake marks David and Varun's second collaboration.
