Dulquer Salmaan is all excited over the release of his maiden Bollywood film, Karwaan today, August 3rd. The star made a successful debut in the Telugu film industry with Mahanati recently and is looking forward to score big in Bollywood with Karwaan.

In an interview to the Indian Express, the young star from the Malayalam film industry said that though he wanted to debut in Bollywood, he was certain that it should be a multi-starrer and explained his reasons thus: “Irrfan and Mithila were already on board when I was approached for the film. I quite instinctively liked the idea. I knew quite soon that I want to do it. I liked the fact that Irrfan sir was already a part of the film and I will be in a film that a lot of people will watch. I didn’t want to have a debut just by myself where I am the lead actor and the story revolves around me. I think the fact that Irrfan sir is in the movie will give me a chance to be seen.”

Karwaan is a comedy drama that has been directed by Akarsh Khurana and produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Priti Rathi Gupta under the banners RSVP Movies and Ishka Films. The film has Kriti Kharbanda making a cameo appearance with Amala Akkineni in a pivotal role.

The technical crew comprises Prateek Khuhad, Anurag Saikia, SlowCheetah and Imaad Shah for music while Avinash Arun has cranked the camera and Ajay Sharma has edited the film. Bejoy Nambiar has penned the story for Karwaan and Akarsh Khurana has directed the film besides penning the screenplay.

Dulquer will be joining the sets of another Hindi movie, The Zoya Factor, which is based on a novel. The sports drama will have Sonam Kapoor playing the female lead. In this movie, Dulquer plays the Indian cricket team captain and will be undergoing special training in cricket to help him get into the skin of the character.
