Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan’s much awaited film Coolie No.1 was supposed to hit the screens on May 1. However that didn’t happen because of the coronavirus pandemic. While others are considering the option of direct-to-digital. Makers of the David Dhawan directorial are still hopeful for the theatrical release.
According to the information Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Productions has bought the theatrical distribution rights of the film.
“It’s a fresh film with Varun, Sara and a huge ensemble with Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, Javed Jaffery to name some. It has fetched approximately Rs 50 crore from Balaji for the distribution of the film in India. The deal was struck before the coronavirus pandemic and there lies a chance of renegotiating it, depending on the on-ground scenario closer to the film’s release.”
The source also revealed that the makers are eyeing for a new year to release the film.
Coolie No.1 is the official remake of Govinda and Karisma Kapoor’s comedy by the same title.
