"Working on Coolie No. 1 has really been a dream come true. One has grown up listening
to songs like Husnhai Suhana and Mirchi Lagi, and it’s surreal that I now feature in the reprised
versions of these songs! Working with Varun was an amazing experience, as not only is he an impeccable actor but he is also an extremely considerate, helpful and motivating friend who
always has your back on set. Of course, working with David Sir was a sheer privilege as I truly
believe he’s the king of this commercial, masala, family comedy genre," said actress Sara Ali

watching actors like Paresh sir, Rajpal sir, Johnny Sir, Bharti Maam, Javed Sir and even Saahil
and Shikha. I’m so grateful to Jackie and Vashu Sir for giving me this opportunity, and supporting
us so much through this film! I really am excited for this film to release, and I sincerely hope that
we’re able to spread happiness and some much-needed Christmas cheer with this movie,” she
