Bollywood Hungama was the FIRST ON WEB to announce that Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan’s upcoming comic caper, Coolie No. 1 has opted for a direct-to-digital route with a premiere on Amazon Prime Video. We also revealed that the comedy film directed by David Dhawan, will hit the small screen this Diwali, proving to be an entertaining ride for the families across the country. However, in a recent development, Coolie No. 1 will now arrive on Christmas moving back by 45 days from its initial plan to arrive on Diwali.
“Coolie No. 1 was ideal for Diwali considering the comedy genre, however, the current negative sentiment around Sara Ali Khan owing to the entire drug controversy made the makers rethink and restrategise on their release plan. They didn’t want their film to face negative PR owing to Sara Ali Khan, and decided on rather waiting for the matter to settle down than going ahead with a Diwali release,” a source informed Bollywood Hungama, adding further that everyone is of the opinion that once truth comes out, the negative press around Bollywood too will take a back seat.
The movie also features Paresh Rawal and Rajpal Yadav in key roles. It is produced by Vashu and Jackky Bhagnani.
