In the video, Varun is heard saying: “On the sets of ‘Coolie No.1’. Shooting in the middle of the South China sea. And we are going at a speed of 800 kms per hour… I think that’s not true… I don’t know what the real speed is… but we are having a lot of fun shooting this film… Right now in the character of Kuwar Mahendra Pratap.”
