Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Films made the announcement on Twitter saying, “He has always tickled our funny bones with his perfect comic timing! It's time to welcome a new member, @jaavedjaaferi to the #CoolieNo1 family! #1May2020.” Incidentally, Pooja Films had also produced the original Coolie No 1. 

Jaaferi replied to the tweet, saying, “So so so enjoying working with this fabulous team. This is going to be a riot.”
