Directed by Akarsh Khurana, Karwaan is scheduled for an August 10 release. It is a story of three people with distinct character traits who are thrown together on a road trip. While sharing the poster of the films, the makers described the film as “3 lost souls on a journey of a lifetime”. The film has been shot in the beautiful locales of Kerala. Apart from Irrfan, Dulquer and Mithila, the light-hearted comedy also stars Kriti Kharbanda in a pivotal role.
The last Irrfan’s fans heard from him was when he officially tweeted about him suffering from cancer. On March 5, his tweet read, “The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research ;-) To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell.”

Last seen in madcap comedy Blackmail, Irrfan also has another movie with Deepika Padukone in his kitty but filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj has pushed back the film in the wake of Irrfan’s health.
