Bollywood actors Jackky Bhagnani and Arshad Warsi have teamed up for Ashish R Mohan's comedy flick based on our very own Karachi.

Actor Irrfan Khan was previously supposed to be one of the main leads in the film, but he decided to back out at the last moment owing to some creative differences.

According to the Indian Express, Jackky Bhagnani who was last seen in Youngistaan, has replaced Irrfan.

Welcome 2 Karachi is about two adventurers who get stuck in Karachi amidst the political turmoil in the city.

When asked why he chose Karachi, director Rohit Shetty told Filmfare, “Karachi when compared to any other place is considered to be the most dangerous city, but it’s the people who make the perception. Good human beings are everywhere and that’s what I would like to show through my film.”

Talking about his character, Warsi spoke to Times of India, “My character is a little accident-prone as things keep happening to him all the time.”

Welcome 2 Karachi is expected to release in 2015.
