Turn on the news and you will be bombarded with the adventures of one Yogi across the banks of the Ganga in a northern province of India. And yes, it can get a bit too much sometimes. So here is Irrfan Khan, with a new perspective — just another Yogi in Uttar Pradesh. 

One look at the first teaser poster of Irrfan's upcoming film Qarib Qarib Singlle and you'd immediately know what we are talking about. A lungi-shirt-clad lanky Irrfan is seen dragging his suitcase — one that tells a tale of many a travel — across the ghats of the Ganga, with a caption, "Follow Yogi's safarnama," which loosely translates to, "Follow Yogi's travelogue." For all those who were rooting for a new Yogi, your prayers have been answered. 


Qarib Qarib Singlle is a slice-of-a-desi-life adventure featuring the National Award-winner Irrfan opposite Malayalam actor Parvathy, which also incidentally marks her Bollywood debut. Director Tanuja Chandra describes the film as a "contemporary love story of two people who embark upon an unusual journey, which turns into a mad adventure. I've made plenty violent thrillers, now onto to something that's slice of life and fun." The film is headed for a November 10 release.


However, we do not quite understand the reason behind the 'double l' in Qarib Qarib Singlle. Does being almost single come with a 'double l' while being completely single follows the more linguistically accepted 'single l'? Irrfan and Tanuja, please do explain.
