Mumbai: Irrfan Khan-starrer “Karwaan” will now release on August 3, a week before its scheduled date. The release date of the Ronnie Screwvala venture, which also marks the Bollywood debut of Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar, has been advanced “to enjoy a clear two-week solo run at the box office”, read a statement from the makers, who believe that as per distributor’s point of view, it is a lucrative release window.
“Karwaan” revolves around three oddballs from different walks of life who are thrown together on a somewhat bizarre journey which helps them find normalcy in their lives. The film has been shot in the locales of Kerala.
Produced by Screwvala`s creative production house RSVP in association with Ishka films, “Karwaan” is directed by Akarsh Khurana.
Earlier, Yash Raj Films’ “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar” was to release on August 3 too, but its makers shifted it to March 1, 2019.
