After Kalank, actor Varun Dhawan is going to start shooting for the remake of Govinda starrer Coolie No. 1 soon. The actor is gearing up to be directed by his father,David Dhawan, once again.
Talking about the film and the inevitable comparisons, Varun said, “It is not a remake. The film is an adaptation, while the screenplay remains the same. We are changing a lot of things, and it will be different from the original. I have not seen such a wholesome entertainer in the last 15 years; so, I am doing it because I loved the screenplay. And being directed by dad is always great. I am aware that there will be comparisons, that is why I have taken it up.”In an interview, Varun revealed his plans of venturing into production soon. “I will turn producer but I will never behave like a producer on sets. I am an actor and I will always keep that thing in mind. Whenever I do a film with my brother or dad, I am hands-on,” Varun Dhawan said.
“Coolie No 1 is from my own production house so I am involved thoroughly with the film. Karan (Johar) has taught us that we have to be involved in every facet and he says we are responsible for everything. I have learnt a lot from Karan,” Varun said. Varun, who has never had a flop in his seven-year long career, said that he doesn’t believe in wasting his producers’ money unnecessarily.”I want my films to make money. If somebody is investing in me so it becomes my duty that they don’t lose money. As a bankable actor who is taking money, I think it is my responsibility to return that money. I don’t like to waste anyone’s money by making unrealistic demands,” added Varun.
