Arshad Warsi is back to spark a laugh riot with his upcoming film Welcome To Karachi. The first trailer of the film was released on YouTube Monday.
Directed by Ashish R Mohan, Welcome To Karachi also features Jackky Bhagnani and Lauren Gottlieb in lead roles.
In the film, Kedar (Jackky Bhagnani) wants to visit America but is unable to get a visa, and his friend Shammi (Arshad Warsi) promises to get him one. In a hilarious 2.5-minute long promo, Warsi and Jackky are seen justifying the tagline of the movie: To survive, they must stay foolish.
Some of the sequences are sure to bring a smile on your face. Sample some of the punch lines…
When a militant asks for names of Arshad and Jackky, Arshad says, "Ye goonga hai, iska naam Goonga-ul-Ittefaq" and introduces himself as "Shammi Al What the F***".
And in another, a militant tells the duo, "Humko tumhare jaise mujahid pe fakr hai", they retort, "We fakar you too."
Speaking about his role in the movie, Arshad said at the trailer launch in Mumbai, "Every film has its own space, and the humour is absolutely funny. It's not political, it's fun... I had a great time doing this film."
Interestingly, Jackky Bhagnani got Welcome To Karachi after Irrfan Khan walked out of the film due to date issues. "I feel Irrfan sir is a supreme actor. I can never replace him. I'm a big fan of him," Jacky said at the launch.

Vashu Bhagnani, producer of the film, said that he plans to promote and release Welcome to Karachi in Pakistan as well. "We have been invited, and we are planning to go. In the next 45 days, we will plan," he said.
The film, a political satire, is slated to hit theatres on May 21 release.
