The cult movie Coolie No. 1, featuring Govinda and Karishma Kapoor, is getting a remake by none other than David Dhawan himself. The remake of Coolie No.1 will feature Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan in the lead role and Paresh Rawal would will in the role of Kader Khan. If the recent reports are to be believed the movie would also feature the original song -- Mai to raste se jaa raha tha.
The new version of the song is said to be composed by Tanishk Bagchi. David Dhawan said that they are trying to keep the original essence of the song, as it is important to the story and narration. However, things have changed now and it would have to be recreated to fit the character of Sara Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan. He said inside stories about the original song. While shooting in Bengaluru, they found a street with numerous Bhel Puri stalls. Senior Dhawan thought of it to be the best place to capture the essence of the city.
For the remake of the film and song, Senior Dhawan thinks that the film will showcase the natural chemistry between Sara and Varun and it would be nothing less than a joyride.
