As India continues to fight against COVID-19, makers of Varun Dhawan-featuring movie 'Coolie No. 1' on Thursday issued a new coronavirus-themed poster of the comedy flick.

The new poster features Dhawan wearing a face mask along with a coolie cap and 'tikka' on his forehead.

Dhawan shared the poster on social media and assured his fans that despite being a bit late due to COVID-19 crisis, the comedy flick will surely hit the screens to spread laughter.

"#Coolieno1 Hum aayenge vada raha," he wrote in the caption.

The family entertainer was slated to make its way to theatres on May 1, but couldn't see the light of the day due to shuttering of movie theatres owing to coronavirus crisis.

'Coolie No. 1' is the remake of Govinda and Karisma Kapoor hit film, which garnered huge appreciation back in 1995.

The remake stars Sara Ali Khan opposite Dhawan and it will also see Paresh Rawal stepping into the shoes of Kader Khan.

Helmed by David Dhawan, it is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, and Deepshikha Deshmukh.
