Shikha Talsania is the latest addition to the cast of David Dhawan’s Coolie No. 1, the remake of the director's 1995 film of the same name. Talsania has joined the cast of Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan. This is her next project since last year’s hit, Veere Di Wedding, which starred Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhasker and Sonam Kapoor.
Talsania is ecstatic to have joined the film. “Being a part of a David Dhawan film is on every actor’s bucket list and I am no different! And to top that with an opportunity to collaborate with such fantastic actors and people – Varun and Sara – I said yes without batting an eyelid!” she said in an official statement.

Although her character is currently kept under wraps, Talsania did reveal a bit about her role. “After Veere, the audience will see me in a totally new lens and that’s what makes it more exciting than it already is. I am also thrilled to partner with Pooja Films who are making sure we have an absolute blast at the shoot and I am sure that fun will translate beautifully on screen,” she said.
Interestingly, her father and veteran actor Tiku Talsania was a part of the original Coolie No. 1 (1995). He played the role of a police inspector.
Actress Kanchan played the second female lead in the original film where she was cast opposite Harish. We need to wait and watch to see if Talsania plays that character.
Coolie No. 1 will be released on 1 May 2020.
