Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan starrer Coolie No 1 (2020) opened to average reviews by critics but it managed to have record viewership the highest ever on Amazon Prime in India beating Mirzapur with approx 30 Lakh views worldwide. Coolie No 1 was sold as a direct release to Amazon prime at 115 Crores which makes it a success
Coole No 1 would have been a double-digit opener in today’s time if it had opened in theaters as Judwaa 2 had opened at 15.75 Crores in 2017 though Varun Dhawan’s previous few movies have been low openers still this was a proper mass-oriented movie.
Coolie No 1 in 1995 was made at a budget of 3.5 Crores and had gone on to do 21 Crores Lifetime which inflation-adjusted in today’s time would be 140 Crores net and was a big success at that time which prompted this remake.
