Malayali superstar Dulquer Salman is all set to make his Bollywood debut with Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar in Akarsh khurana’s Karwan.
Produced by Ronnie Screwwala, Karwan is the directorial debut of Akarsh who has co-written the script with Hussain Dalal, the writer of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
“It is a light-hearted comedy in which DQ plays a guy who lives in Bengaluru. The film will go on floors in September first week,” says Akarsh.
Karwan is believed to a road trip film that tells the story of two friends who head for a month-long road trip across Ootty and Kochi. Irrfan Khan, Mithila Palkar and Dulquer are from different walks of life who come together at one juncture of their lives.
Akarsh adds that there is no romantic connection between Mithila and Dulquer.
When asked about the reason for choosing Dulquer, Akarsh says, “I have been following Dulquer for a while after Mani Ratnam’s O Kadhal Kanmani. And I really loved his movie ‘Charlie’. He has showcased a fantabulous performance in it. Then I watched his movies, Bangalore days, Kammattipaadam and so on…He is the perfect cast for the movie.”
The film also stars Mithila Palkar, the web series fame who was recently starred in a Marathi film titled Muramba. Mithila shot to fame with her performance in web series such as ‘Girl In The City’ and ‘Little Things’.
The film is scheduled to release sometime in 2018. Wait with beating hearts for the movie to hit screens !!!
