Welcome 3: Akshay Kumar Drops A Cappella Teaser of ‘Welcome To The Jungle’
When Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor, and Paresh Rawal starrer Welcome was released in 2007, it not only garnered commercial success but was also loved by the audiences owing to the over-the-top bizarre storyline and dialogues. Eight years later, Welcome Back hit theaters in 2015 and once again left everyone completely impressed. And now, the producer of the film, Firoz Nadiadwala, as promised is bringing the third installment of the franchise. Amid so many exciting updates pouring in about the cast of the film, Akshay Kumar dropped a fun a-cappella version of ‘Welcome To The Jungle,’ hyping everyone up.
On Saturday, Akshay Kumar took to his Instagram handle and shared a clip, in which we see the entire cast of the film consisting of the actor himself as well as Paresh Rawal, Disha Patani, Jacqueline Fernandez, Arshad Warsi, Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty, Johnny Lever, Shreyas Talpade, Tusshar Kapoor, and others singing a peppy revised version of the title song of Welcome, but with a twist. Dressed in camo uniforms, the cast grooves with the song, and Mika Singh, Daler Mehndi chimes in with ‘Tunak Tunak Tun.’ Sharing the promo, Akshay Kumar wrote in the caption, “Khud ko aur aap sab ko ek birthday gift diya hai aaj. If you like it and say thanks, I’d say Welcome(3) 😬 #WelcomeToTheJungle In cinemas, Christmas – 20th December, 2024. #Welcome3.”
Of the 3 films under Firoz Nadiadwala’s banner, Welcome might be the first to take off as the script is ready a while back. The filmmaker is planning to bring a spin to the narrative of this comic caper by getting Sanjay Dutt and Arshad to play the notorious gangsters – Majnu and Uday. The duo has already shown their chemistry as Munna and Circuit, and now it will be time to explore the dimension in a new franchise,” a source cited by the entertainment portal PinkVilla claimed earlier.
“The scale of Welcome 3: the cost, the climax, is unreal. It is an insanely larger-than-life theatrical film which I will be a part of. It has me, Akshay Kumar, Sanju (Sanjay Dutt), Paresh Rawal, and lots of other people.”
When Arshad Warsi confirmed that he is indeed a part of Welcome 3, he told Hindustan Times in an interview, “The scale of Welcome 3: the cost, the climax, is unreal. It is an insanely larger-than-life theatrical film which I will be a part of. It has me, Akshay Kumar, Sanju (Sanjay Dutt), Paresh Rawal, and lots of other people.”
Welcome Back To The Jungle will be helmed by Ahmed Khan, produced by Feroz Nadiadwala, Jyoti Deshpande. It is slated to release during Christmas, on December 25, 2024.
