David Dhawan is credited for giving us some of the most loved and popular films in the 90s with actors like Salman Khan and Govinda. While the filmmaker has been remaking his iconic films with his son Varun Dhawan, he also feels that no one can ever do what Salman and Govinda did, not even his son. Opening up about his upcoming ‘Coolie No. 1’ remake with Varun and Sara Ali Khan, David Dhawan reportedly told a news portal that he cannot be doing a faithful remake of the Govinda film. According to him, Varun is not similar to Govinda at all. Govinda was a legend in his own right with a style no one can copy.
The filmmaker also added that what Govinda and he did together in films like ‘Haseena Maan Jayegi’, ‘Hero No 1’ and ‘Coolie No 1’ can’t be repeated with any other hero.
The director also feels that even his own son Varun cannot replicate Govinda and Salman’s works. Speaking about the same, he said that Varun is a different actor from Govinda, or for that matter Salman Khan. When Varun did the remake of ‘Judwaa’, he didn’t try to do what Salman did. No actor can do what Govinda or Salman can do. Varun in Coolie No.1 is as different from Govinda in the original as Varun was from Salman in the new ‘Judwaa’.
In his upcoming remake of ‘Coolie No 1’, Varun will be seen stepping into the shoes of Govinda and Sara Ali Khan will be seen reprising the role of Karisma Kapoor.
