Now, the makers have unveiled the title of the flick: It has been named Karwan. A few photos taken from the shooting location have also surfaced online. While Irrfan is seen in a kurta with traditional jacket and hat, Dulquer sports a simple shirt.

"And this is just day one ! Happy Karwaan to everyone," Dulquer, who will be playing the role of a Bangalore-based guy in the light-hearted comedy entertainer, wrote while sharing an image with Irrfan and Mithila on his Facebook page. 

Karwan is the directorial venture of Akarsh Khurana, while Ronnie Screwvala bankrolls the project that is touted to be a road-trip movie. The actors are expected to travel across Ooty and Kochi during the one-month-long schedule.

Interestingly, DQ has replaced Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who was initially considered for the character. The latter backed out of the project due to date clash with JP Dutta's war drama Paltan.
