With their new film ‘Coolie No.1’ soon to premiere on , Sara Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan have been out and about in the western Indian city of Mumbai for the promotions of their Christmas release.
The co-stars have been sharing some fun social media banter as they promote their comedy. Sara is known for posting poetry on her social media channels and it looks like her poetry rubbed off on Varun as shared a bunch of photos on his social media platform, accompanied with a poem, which he addressed to Sara.
Varun wrote: “CHECK-MATE, You fell for the bait, Now please don’t hate, Because you are GREAt @saraalikhan95”.
Sara decided to give a fitting reply to this and posted, “Varun Dhawan is a brat, Shayari chor, copycat, Don’t worry I have more tricks in my hat, I’m the OG poetess – you forgot that! @varundvn”
‘Coolie No.1’ is a remake of the 1995 film of the same name, which is also directed by David Dhawan. The original had Karishma Kapoor and Govinda in the lead, which will now be played by Sara and Varun.
The comedy film will also star Paresh Rawal, Jaaved Jaaferi, Shikha Talsania, Rajpal Yadav, Sahil Vaid, and Johnny Lever in significant roles.
The Christmas release will join Amazon’s wide slate of new Bollywood releases this year, including ‘’, '’ and '’.
