Sara Ali Khan defends problematic story of original Coolie No. 1, says 'Govinda duping Karisma is not about him cheating'


Sara Ali Khan is all set to make Christmas merrier with the release of her film Coolie No. 1 co-starring Varun Dhawan, Paresh Rawal, Johnny Lever and others. While the rom-com has garnered much attention, there are some who are busy criticising it for its humour. Reacting to the same, the 25-year-old actress told a leading daily that the audience should watch the film with an open mind. Sara further defended the problematic plot of the original Coolie No. 1 starring Govinda and Karisma Kapoor. 

"I’d urge people to watch the film with the honest intention with which it is told. There is a difference between what you say on Twitter, and what an entertaining comedy tries to say. If everybody [expects] everything to be politically correct, any scope of humour in our lives will be [lost]. Of course, you can’t be demeaning. Govinda sir duping Karisma to make her believe that he is not a coolie, is funny. It’s not about him cheating. Ultimately, he falls in love with her, and that’s what most of us look forward to in life," Sara told.
