Welcome 3 is a much awaited sequel to the Welcome series, starring Akshay Kumar, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and many more. After so many years of appreciation, the project’s team finally announced its third part, but it’s not going to be what we thought it would be.
One of the main cast, Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor have been replaced with the one of the most loved and superhit duos in Indian cinema- Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi. The two have worked in the Munna Bhai movies, and undoubtedly, they both together have created a huge fandom. But why did the ‘Welcome 3’ casting team replace Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar in the first place?
Well, as per a report in Pinkvilla, a source revealed the reason stating, “It’s a case of monetary disagreements between the duo and the producer”.
Going further, the source added, “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 have already shown their chemistry as Munna and Circuit and now it will be time to explore the dimension in a new franchise.”
