Actor Varun Dhawan shared a picture from his upcoming film Coolie No 1 and gave it a coronavirus twist amid this pandemic. His character can be seen wearing a mask.

Sharing the picture, Varun simply wrote “#coolieno1” followed by writing ‘we’ll cometo make you laugh, promise’ in Hindi. The picture had many responding to it -- Manish Malhotra gave it a stamp of approval and dropped a thumbs up emoji. Fans also seemed to like the look.

Varun Dhawan had, in an earlier interview, clarified that that there will be a lots changes in the new version of Coolie No. 1. “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,” said Varun.

Varun also spoke about why he thought a new version of Coolie No.1 was a good idea and said that he was doing it because he hadn’t “seen such a wholesome entertainer in the last 15 years.”

And the actor is all for the challenge of being compared to Govinda as Coolie No. 1 is one of the actor’s most popular comedies. “I am aware that there will be comparisons, that is why I have taken it up,” said Varun.

The original Coolie No. 1 had Govinda play the role of a coolie, who with the help of a spurned matchmaker, poses to be a millionaire to get married to a rich man’s daughter, played by Karisma Kapoor.
