Sara Ali Khan is definitely the Bollywood queen of GenNext. In 2018’s Kedarnath, she made a promising debut and since then she has carefully picked her films, alternating roles in the commercial entertainer Simmba with the romantic drama Love Aaj Kal 2 by Imtiaz Ali Karisma Kapoor.
Khan joins David Dhawan’s crazy universe with Coolie No 1, which very few stars have done well in. The 1995 remake of the same name also stars Varun Dhawan and attempts to reload the all-out, slapstick Govinda comedy for his fans, judging by the trailer.
The 25-year-old Khan is looking forward to the release of the film, in which she reprises the part originally played by Karisma Kapoor, her father’s sister-in-law. But she knows the not possible.” to get into those shoes. Khan said Karisma Kapoor is an iconic actress. She’s redefining the nineties. I didn’t even want to fit into her heels. It is a sequel, of course, and similarities are inevitable, but there is so much more emphasis on adding something new to it. It’s just sort of a tweak to make it perfect today.
Khan joked that when the original film hit theatres, she was “zero-years-old” Since 1995, things have changed. I think we have tried to bring freshness to the character instead of aping or attempting to imitate Karisma, which is difficult to do,” she added. “I loved working with Varun. For me in the film, it’s the chemistry, as opposed to trying to copy Karisma Kapoor, because it wouldn’t be enjoyable and wouldn’t be realistic.
This was the first time Khan had interacted with the Dhawans and she was having a lot of fun. “Honestly, it was like a mela. I really hope that kind of fun and energy got translated on screen because that would be amazing,” she concluded.
