If you were an avid cinephile during the 90s or are one of the many kids who have a fine taste in movies of that decade, there’s a good chance that Govinda and Karisma Kapoor were the reason why. Be it Raja Babu, Coolie No. 1, Hero No. 1, Haseena Maan Jayegi, Saajan Chale Sasural, the duo has given us iconic movies and songs that we can watch any day and anytime. While one can’t stop raving about their legacy, one is starting to see the dawn of a new jodi that could be the second coming of this evergreen couple. Yes, we’re talking about none other than Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan who’re all set to rock in the remake of Coolie No. 1 that’s set to stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video this Christmas. While this marks the very first time that the two are starring alongside each other, we sure hope that Coolie No.1 isn’t the last. Here’s why reasons why we think Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan could be the next Govinda-Karisma jodi in Bollywood
1) Both of them can dance. And how!
If you’re going to match up to Govinda and Karisma Kapoor, it goes without saying that you don’t just need to shake a leg, but need to do it like no one’s watching. That’s exactly what the legendary pair did and going by Varun and Sara’s dancing skills, we’re pretty sure that they’ll set the stage and pretty much every other location on fire.
2) Stylistas who can carry off outfits no one can
When you saw Govinda and Karisma on screen, you weren’t just seeing a film, you were watching two stars wearing possibly every colour under the sun and rock that outfit. Everyone can sink into their character and pack a punch. But here were two fashionistas who could sink into their costumes. While we’re wondering where did they get their clothes from, we can relive the good old days in a new avatar as we see Varun and Sara ooze all things style and panache as they sizzle on screen. Going by their insta-savvy looks that are always the talk of the town, we’re pretty sure that these two will give us fashion goals like they always do.
3) Their comic timing is top notch
All it took were seconds for Govinda and Karisma to make us laugh out loud like idiots. One didn’t realize how time flew as the audience left their brains at home and watched these two on the big screen. If one had to look for them in a new pair, Varun and Sara are the two whose face can lighten up your mood in no time. It’ll be slapstick comedy at its very best as the duo bring their comedy A-game and leave us in splits.
4) Both have a screen presence for a super-hit masala entertainer
When you’re catering to the masses, it’s best that you do and say things that the people adore. Playing to the gallery made Govinda and Karisma the legends that they are today. While following in their footsteps, let alone stepping in their shoes is a herculean task, Varun and Sara, with their charisma and on-screen persona can surely make any film an instant 100 crore box office success. We’re pretty sure the seetis will be heard right from the front row to the last the moment one sees their ‘entry scene’.
5) A chemistry that will make you believe the ridiculous
The winning formula that they were, it didn’t take time for one to realise that the movies that Govinda and Karisma acted in didn’t make a lot of sense. But what the audience got was entertainment at its best that was paisa vasool. The two just came on screen and you were teleported to their world where anything was possible. Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan, are themselves capable enough to carry an entire film on their shoulders and make it a blockbuster at the box office. Could you possibly imagine the fireworks when the two get together?
