Sara Ali Khan is making waves and how! After making a great grand debut with Kedarnath with was immediately followed by Simmba. While both her films made their mark at the box office, the former established her as an art house actor and the latter saw her as a leading lady in a masala entertainer. In fact, in less than twelve days, Simmba went on to cross the 200 crore mark as well.
And now, it’s time to move ahead. Sources have now confirmed that Sara Ali Khan will step in the shoes of Karisma Kapoor to play the leading lady, opposite Varun Dhawan, in the official remake of Coolie No. 1. A source confirms, “Varun and Sara will share screen space in the former’s first home production. It will be directed by David Dhawan, who had also helmed the original. This will be the first film to roll out under their banner The One Entertainment. The team wanted a new jodi for the comedy and the Dhawans felt Sara would be apt for it.”
The source added that Ali Khan was offered the part even before Kedarnath had hit the screens. “They were in talks for some time and had approached her even before Kedarnath hit the marquee. The idea is to adapt the original and modernise it. The 23-year-old will step into Karisma’s shoes, but the makers are changing the character sketch a bit and making it even more prominent in the remake.”
