The makers of Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan starrer ‘Coolie No. 1’ suffered a loss of whopping Rs 2.5 crore before the final shooting of the movie. Along with set, few lights equipment also got damaged in the fire that erupted on the location.

Talking about the movie, this Varun-starrer is said to be the remake of Govinda and Karisma Kapoor’s Coolie No. 1, which released in 1995. Interestingly, Sara Ali Khan will be stepping into Karisma’s shoes for the movie.
