Varun Dhawan will soon be seen in the avatar of a coolie for his father David Dhawan's next film. The actor is currently shooting Coolie No 1 in Bangkok with Sara Ali Khan.

Varun recently shared a BTS video from the sets of the film. Varun introduced his character Kuwar Mahinder Pratap in the video.

Varun shared the clip saying, "KUWAR MAHINDER PRATAP. In the middle of the ocean nearly fell off #coolieno1."

Varun keeps his fans updated about his whereabouts through Instagram. The actor earlier took to social media to wish his father David Dhawan on his birthday. He shared a picture with him from the sets of Coolie No 1.

Varun also shared the first poster of Coolie No 1 with Sara Ali Khan on social media.

Coolie No 1 is the remake of the original 1995 film of the same title. Before Coolie No 1, Varun and David worked together in the Judwaa series. While the 1995 original starred Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead roles, the new version will have Varun and Sara Ali Khan stepping into their shoes.

In an earlier interview to PTI, Varun spoke about Coolie No 1. He said, "When we do something like this, the idea is that the essence has to be the same. But at the same time, the film is completely different. It is not a remake, it is an adaptation. But the title is the same."

In another interview, he said, "I just want to try and bring back the fun that we had while watching Govinda's Coolie No 1. That is why my father is also ready to do it. He has changed a lot of things. He has challenged himself also. He is the only one who knows the sur (tune) for this kind of film."

Coolie No 1 is the first film that will see Varun and Sara together on the big screen. The film is set to release on May 1, 2020.
