Dulquer Salmaan is all set to make his Bollywood debut and we cannot stay calm. The makers have reportedly titled the film, Karwaan, and the shoot began in Ooty yesterday. Karwaan is the directorial debut of noted actor/theatre personality Akarsh Khurana. The movie is expected to be a light hearted entertainer which is based on the story of two friends who hail from different backgrounds. While Dulquer will be playing one of the lead roles, the other will reportedly be essayed by Irrfan Khan.
A source told Pune Mirror that in the film both Dulquer and Irrfan are playing friends who are on a road trip that begins from Ooty. “They met last week in Mumbai at producer Ronnie Screwvala’s office for their reading sessions and have bonded really well. It’s a 32-day schedule with brief breaks in between. Another schedule will take place in Mumbai. The team had a blast shooting on day one,” informed the source.

Meanwhile, internet sensation, Mithila Palkar, has been roped in to play the leading lady in the film. She too has reportedly joined the duo in Ooty. The script of the movie has been co-written by Akarsh and Hussain Dalal, the dialogue writer for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and 2 States, who will also be a part of the forth coming comedy show on TV, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, which will be judged by Akshay Kumar.
Meanwhile, before Karwaan releases, the OK Kadhal kanmani actor is gearing up for his Malayalam-Tamil bilingual film, Solo, directed by Bejoy Nambiar to hit screens. On the other hand, Irrfan Khan will be seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s next production, which will be helmed by Honey Trehan. This will once again see the versatile actor star opposite his Piku co-star Deepika Padukone.
