After being bashed from all corners, Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan-starring film ‘Coolie No 1’ has become one of the lowest ranking films on IMDb(1.4). The film has even managed to beat ‘Race 3’ and gained a lower rank at the movie rating platform.
All Govinda fans are upset with Varun Dhawan for touching an iconic piece by the legendary actor. The movie, which also features Paresh Rawal and Johnny Lever in pivotal roles, is once again directed by David Dhawan, who originally helmed the 1995 film starring Govinda as the male lead and Karisma Kapoor as the female lead.
While Varun and Sara’s film has received a low rating and opened to meme reactions by Twitterati, Race 3 starring Salman in the lead also faced a similar fate at the hands of the fans as it was an experimental film. Coolie No. 1 star Sara also had spoken in an interview and had tried to defend the problematic plot of the original film. She had said that if the audience begins to view everything from the correct lens, then the scope of humour gets lost.
She had said, “I’d urge people to watch the film with the honest intention with which it is told. There is a difference between what you say on Twitter, and what an entertaining comedy tries to say. Of course, you can’t be demeaning. Govinda sir duping Karisma to make her believe that he is not a coolie, is funny.”
