Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan‘s film, Coolie No.1, is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Firstly, it’s David Dhawan remake my his very own iconic directorial, and then there’s the fresh pairing of Varun and Sara.

The pandemic has pushed the release dates of many films, and Coolie no. 1 was no different. Just last month, there was news that the film is aiming for a new year launch in the theatres this January 2021. But, a Bollywood Hungama report now states that the makers have decided to go for a digital release, that too on Diwali. The report also suggests that the film has been sold to Amazon Prime Video.

The source said that they took the tough call of a direct to digital release because there was no clarity on when theatres will open again. They also add that they chose Diwali because then, they are sure to have the entire family get together and enjoy the comedy caper.

The source also added that after Laxmmi Bomb and Bhuj: The Pride Of India, Coolie No. 1 fetched the highest amount for its purchase.

Now, if these reports are to be believed we will be able to catch Coolie No. 1 very soon, from the comfort of our own homes!
