Varun Dhawan, who will be seen in the new version of "Coolie No 1", says it is not a remake but the essence of the original film will be retained.Â Â
Varun's father David Dhawan had directed the Govinda-Karishma KapoorÂ starrer 1995 hit.Â
Â "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," Varun told PTI.Â Â
Â The actor says the film is currently in the scripting stage.Â "Work is on for 'Coolie No 1'. The shoot will start in August-September."
There is also a strong buzz that Varun will reunite with his "Badlapur" director Sriram Raghavan and the actor teased a possibility. "He (Sriram) is one of the best directors we have. There is some talk happening, so let's see."
Â The actor is promoting his next, "Kalank" and is currently working on "Street Dancer".Â
