Over the years Irrfan Khan has emerged to be one of the finest actors of Bollywood. The global icon is an acclaimed face not just in India but also worldwide. In the recent three years, however, Irrfan Khan has presented the most engrossing and interesting content. After Piku, Irrfan will once again be seen in a road trip film, along with debutants Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar. Marking the debut of the two actors, Karwaan brings together the best of all.
Karwaan revolves around 3 oddballs from different walks of life who are thrown together on a somewhat bizarre journey which helps them find normalcy in their lives. It is a road trip on which some crazy adventures take place, some lines are crossed, some bonds are forged, detours are made, experiences are shared and secrets are revealed. Bankrolled by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP in association with Priti Rathi Gupta of ‘Ishka films’, Karwaan is helmed by Akarsh Khurana and is slated to release on August 3, 2018.
