Reports suggest that he will be making his Bollywood debut in Ronnie Screwvala’s yet-to-be-titled production which will star Irrfan Khan too. The movie will be in the comedy genre. Earlier, Abhishek Bachchan was offered the role which will now be essayed by Dulquer Salmaan, but he opted out of the project as he could not provide dates. The dates of the movie clashed with another JP Dutta movie called ‘Paltan’ for which he had already committed. A source close to the project revealed to a leading daily that the movie is a light-hearted entertainer and will show Dulquer and Irrfan as friends on a Road trip. The film will go on the floors by the end of the month in Kerala.
Scriptwriter Akarsh Khurana will be making his directorial debut with this untitled movie which he has written along with Hussain Dalal (of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani‘ and ‘2 States‘ fame). Mithila Palkar, who is famous for her web series ‘Girl In The City’ and ‘Little Things’ will be the leading lady of the movie. Well, it’s going to be an interesting combination to see two great performers, Dulquer Salmaan and Irrfan Khan onscreen together.
