Actor Varun Dhawan ended the year 2020 with the release of his much awaited film Coolie No.1. The film premiered on Amazon Prime Video on December 25 and starred opposite Sara Ali Khan. While the film has received mixed response from the audience, the actor was paid large sums of money for this Govinda – Karishma Kapoor remake.

According to Angoorlata, “Varun Dhawan’s career graph has been good. With the last few films and an array of line-ups in the pipeline, he is in demand. But, a lot was anticipated from Coolie No.1. The film received a deal on Amazon Prime Video after theaters closed during the lockdown. With this film, the actor’s salary increased more than ever. The actor allegedly received Rs. 25 crores for Coolie No.1. This is his highest remuneration for any film so far. “

The source further added, “David Dhawan, who originally starred Govinda – Karisma Kapoor Khan in 1995, made his directorial remake after 15 years with Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan. He was reportedly cast for the project with Rs. 15 crore rupees. “

Rohit Dhawan, who was the Associate Director of Coolie No.1, received Rs. 7 crores rupees. In total, the Dhawan family has collected about Rs. 50 crores for this project. “

Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan has completed the first schedule of Raj Mehta’s Jug Jug Jeeto. He will debut Shriram Raghavan Ekkis and Amar Kaushik’s Bedia later this year.
