Welcome franchise is one of the most entertaining films ever made. Both the parts – Welcome and Welcome Back have a different kind of a fan base and people are eager to know if there is a third part on the cards. While it might have been great news, we have to tell you that it might not happen.
Yes, you read that right! Anees Bazmee revealed to Zoom TV that he is not very keen on making a third part to the comedy franchise. The director revealed that although he had some really great memories while making the two films, he will not be taking it forward.
Talking about why he has taken this decision he revealed that he still reminisces all the fun times he had with Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar while shooting for the film. He said despite that he will not be making the film as during the shoot of Welcome Back, the team had to go through a lot of trouble. He said that shooting for a third part of the film means reliving some of the bad memories attached to the film and hence he has decided to move on.
Welcome gave birth to some iconic characters. Majnu Bhai essayed by Anil Kapoor and Uday Shetty played by Nana Patekar are still some of the best comedy characters ever made. The first part of the franchise – Welcome starred Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif while John Abraham and Shruti Haasan were part of the second part of the franchise – Welcome Back.
Even though Welcome 3 is not happening, we still have Pagalpanti to look forward to. Anees’ directorial stars John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Ileana D’Cruz, Kriti Kharbanda, Pulkit Samrat, Saurabh Shukla, Urvashi Rautela and Anil Kapoor. It is slated to hit the theatres on November 22, 2019.
