Karwaan: It’s a wrap for Dulquer Salmaan’s debut Hindi film!
Dulquer Salmaan had been shooting for his debut Hindi film Karwaan for sometime now. The movie marks the directorial debut of noted actor/theatre personality Akarsh Khurana. Irrfan Khan and internet sensation Mithila Palkar play the other lead roles alongside Dulquer. After shooting in picturesque locations in Ooty and Kerala, the makers finally wrapped it up last day.
Karwaan is a light hearted entertainer which traces the story of three friends who come from different walks of life. It is a slice of life kind movie with much prominence to realistic humour. The characters of Irrfan Khan, Mithila Palkar and Dulquer are from different walks of life who come together at one juncture of their lives.
Dulquer plays a Bangalore based guy in the movie. His character is a sweet yet serious kind of person. Abhishek Bachchan was initially approached for the movie but he opted out due to date issues. The director finally cast Dulquer after being impressed by his performance in films like Bangalore Days and Charlie. Interestingly, there is no romantic interest for Dulquer’s character in the movie.
Akarsh Khurana is noted for his scripts like Humshakals and Krrish 3. He has also co-written the script of Karwaan with Hussain Dalal, the dialogue writer of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and 2 States. Ronnie Screwvala is funding this film. An official word about the movie’s release date is expected to be made in the coming weeks.
