“In the film, Dulquer and Irrfan play 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,” Mumbai Mirror quoted a source close to the development as saying.
In an earlier interview with Times Of India, Akarsh Khurana, who is making his debut as a director with Karwaan, spoke about the casting in his film.
“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,” Akarsh Khurana told Times Of India.
