The 2020 remake will see Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan essaying the roles played by Govinda and Karisma in the original respectively. Paresh Rawal will be seen playing Kader Khan's role in the remake, along with Sahil Vaid, Rajpal Yadav, Johnny Lever and Shikha Talsania. Rumi Jaffery, who wrote the original film, has adapted the screenplay this time, and Farhad Samji has written the dialogues. The iconic number, Tujhko Mirchi Lagi Toh, will be recreated for the film.
The original Coolie No. 1 was released on June 30, 1995. Directed by David Dhawan, the film featured Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead roles, along with Shakti Kapoor and the late actors Kader Khan and Sadashiv Amrapurkar in supporting roles. The film was successful at the box-office, and it kickstarted the No. 1 franchise. Govinda and David Dhawan's pair went on to do wonders at the box-office, and Coolie No. 1 is fondly remembered for Govinda's excellent comic timing and music. To this day, the songs Tujhko Mirchi Lagi Toh and Husn Hai Suhana are still very popular.
