Seems like Sara Ali Khan has eventually beaten Alia Bhatt in the race to bag Varun Dhawan's next. The Kalank actor in his recent conversation with BBC confirmed Coolie No 1 remake in the process and he'll start working on it once he's done with Remo D'Souza's Street Dancer. While we heard rumours about the remake being in the pipeline for Dhawan Jr, the actor went ahead and gave his seal of approval to it. What else? Well, he even confirmed that Alia Bhatt will NOT star with him in the same project. Since the duo has done one too many projects together, he insists that they should take a break. And that's where the Simmba actress comes in the picture. Varun Dhawan All Set to Marry Long Time Girlfriend Natasha Dalal in December, Read Details.

As per a recent report in Bollywood Hungama, the newbie has been signed to romance Varun in this remake. The original movie starred Karisma Kapoor and the makers believe Sara will be able to fill in her shoes perfectly. After starring in a proper masala entertainer like Simmba, the remake of Coolie No 1 shouldn't be an uphill task for her. Moreover, her happy vibes will go hand-in-hand with Varun's charming demeanour. Earlier we heard about the actor's decision to cast her good friend and actor Alia for the project. However, his wish was strongly opposed by David Dhawan who felt Sara would be able to nail this role better than Ms Bhatt. Alia Bhatt Is NOT Varun Dhawan’s Heroine in Coolie No 1 Remake?

Interestingly the Kedarnath actress had expressed a desire to work with Varun on her appearance on Koffee with Karan. When Karan Johar asked her whom would she like to work with next, pat came her reply, Varun Dhawan. Guess, luck is already in favour of this talented actress and there's nothing that can stop her from being the numero uno in this game.
