On June 30, Karisma Kapoor and Govinda-starrer Coolie No 1 completed 25 years of release. To mark the occasion, the lead actors of the film took to Instagram and shared a moving poster of the 1995 film.
Calling Coolie No 1 one of the closest films to her heart, Karisma Kapoor wrote, “Those fun times will live on forever. One of the closest films to my heart , the beginning of our No 1 series. Celebrating #25YearsOfCoolieNo1 Thank you @govinda_herono1, #DavidDhawan, VashuBhagnani @pooja_ent @tips for this beautiful journey #CoolieNo1 #memoriesforever (My outfit in this pic though) (sic).”
Govinda quoted his favourite dialogue from Coolie No 1 to express his emotions. He wrote, “Duniya mera ghar hai, bus stand mera adda hai, jab mann kare aa jana, Raju mera naam hai … aur pyar se log mujhe bulate hain … Coolie No.1! #Celebrating #25 #Years #of #coolieno1 @poojafilms @therealkarismakapoor (sic).”
Released in 1995, Coolie No 1 is the first film in the No 1 series. After this, the hit actor-director duo Govinda and David Dhawan worked together in several other films with No 1 tag, like Hero No 1, Aunty No 1 and Jodi No 1 among others. In many of these films, Karisma Kapoor played the lead female part.
Coolie No 1 is being remade by the director with his son, Varun Dhawan, and Sara Ali Khan. The shooting of the film has been completed and the film is in its post-production now. It was earlier scheduled to release on May 1 this year, but as theatres remained shut due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the makers decided to postpone its release.
