Exclusive! Varun Dhawan’s ‘Coolie No:1’: Shakti Kapoor reveals, “I called up to say I want to be in the film but it was too late” – Times of India


Shakti Kapoor, who played Goverdhan mama in 1985 unforgettable superhit Govinda-led film ‘Coolie No.1‘, says, “I can’t wait for December 11 to see Varun Dhawan‘s ‘Coolie No.1’. I am going to see the film soonest. David is a maker who won’t leave his film until he is satisfied in all respects. So we can rest assured that it must be a nice film. Plus, I am sure he will have some surprise in this one- something different from the original that he made 35 years ago.”

Shakti quickly reveals in the conversation that he wanted David to cast him in this Varun-led one- but by then, David had completed the shoot. “I would have done any role for David and I always will. Varun meri godh mein bada hua hai; he is such an intense actor who has a range if you have seen ‘Badlapur’ and ‘October’.”

Shakti and David have shared a very good rapport since several years and clearly, it stands in good stead till date. “I even did David’s first film ‘Taaqatwar’ (1989). He was a year junior to me at the FTII and he was a very handsome boy then.” Reminscing his favourite scene from the original, Shakti told ETimes, “I think I will never forget the scene which we shot at Juhu Beach wherein they all desert me and I am left near the Shivaji statue.”

Shakti is all praise for Sara Ali Khan too, who plays the female lead. “Sara is a very good artiste,” Shraddha Kapoor’s father concluded.
