They were last seen together in Rakesh Roshan’s Krazzy 4 (2008) and after six years Irrfan Khan and Arshad Warsi will share the screen space together in Aashish R Mohan’s Welcome To Karachi.
Aashish, who had earlier directed Khiladi 786 starring Akshay Kumar and Asin, has signed Irrfan and Arshad for Welcome To Karachi, a film that”s based on global politics. Buzz is that despite it being a two-hero project, there will be only one actress in the film, whose hunt is still on.
Interestingly, there were reports that Kunal Roy Kapur was considered for Arshad’s role but Mohan was keen to sign a relatively popular and saleable actor. Mohan visited Gujarat a couple of months back to finish the script of the film. And when the script got ready he sent the bound version of the same to Arshad and Irrfan and both the powerhouse performers agreed to do the film.
Welcome To Karachi will be produced by Vashu Bhagnani. It’s heard Arshad has also signed Prakash Jha’s daughter’s debut production as well.
