Last year, the much-loved Dulquer Salmaan suffered a setback on the professional front when his highly ambitious ‘Solo’ underperformed at the box office while receiving unflattering reviews. To make matters worse, it ran into controversy when the producers decided to alter its climax without director Bejoy Nambiar’s consent. Commenting on the situation, he had said that he would support the director’s original version.
Now, with 2017 in the past, Dulquer is gearing up to make his Bollywood debut with ‘Karwaan’. The film is touted to be a light-hearted comedy-drama and features DQ in the role of a Bangalore-based software engineer. An Akarsh Khurrana directorial, it also has Irrfan Khan in the lead and is slated to hit screens on June 1, 2018. Speaking about the film, DQ said that it is a dream debut vehicle for him and has a dedicated team behind it. He went on to praise the director and said that he is someone who has a great sense of humour.
“Karwaan became an absolute eye opener once I joined the entire team. Akarsh is a director of great clarity and with his incredible sense of humour and dry wit about everything he made sure shoot always left a smile on your face. The superb acting talents such as Mithila, Amala Ma’am, Akaash sir, Kriti, were all such a joy and inspiring to work with. Debuting in Hindi couldn’t have come through a better film or team. It’s an unforgettable shoot and there are times I wish it lasted longer. I hope the film itself becomes a grand success cause everyone on this film deserves it,” he added.
Well, we wish DQ good luck and hope that ‘Karwaan’ turns out to be a big hit upon release.
