While we are still not over the character posters of ‘Kalank’ that were released yesterday featuring Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt; there’s more news on Dhawan.

The Bollywood star has confirmed that he is a part of a remake of the 1995 film ‘Coolie No 1’ that was headlined by Govinda. He confirmed that not only is he a part of the film but it will be directed by the original director of the film, his father, David Dhawan. 

In an interview to BBC, he said, “As I said it, I was like “should I say it?” But I think it’s come out so many places that yeah,” he said. 

The original film had Govinda and Karisma Kapoor. 

When asked if Alia Bhatt, his usual pair in films will be cast in this too, Varun said, “I can’t do every film with Alia Bhatt,” and added, “That you will know soon, I don’t want to say it now but Alia and I are not working. We’ll do something..after...we’ll give a little break to people because I think for everyone it is like ‘oh, they are back again’.”

Talking about how often he has been paired with Alia, Varun said, “We feel like building friends - we are playing together all the time.” 

Varun will also be seen with Alia in the upcoming film ‘Kalank’. The posters of the female characters were released today on International Women’s Day.
