In exciting news for Bollywood fans, actor Arshad Warsi has confirmed that a third installment of the popular comedy franchise, Welcome, is currently in the works. Warsi said he would be part of “Welcome 3” alongside fellow actors Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, and Paresh Rawal.
This announcement comes after uncertainty surrounding Kumar’s return to comedy franchises. His previous string of box office disappointments had fans questioning whether he would return to the genre that helped solidify his position as one of India’s most beloved actors. However, he recently reassured fans by agreeing to reprise his role in Hera Pheri 3, another much-loved comedy franchise.
While speaking with Hindustan Times, Warsi detailed the grand scale of Welcome 3, describing it as “an insanely larger-than-life theatrical film.” He further shared, “The scale of Welcome 3: the cost, the climax, is unreal. It is an insanely larger-than-life theatrical film that I will be a part of. It has me, Akshay Kumar, Sanju (Sanjay Dutt), Paresh Rawal, and many others.”
The Welcome series is among Kumar’s most iconic comedic roles, featuring him as the hilariously misguided gangster Rajiv. Welcome 3’s announcement adds to the excitement surrounding Kumar’s return to comedy, with fans eagerly anticipating more of his memorable performances.
The previous two Welcome films were commercial successes, featuring star-studded casts and a combination of comedy, romance, and action that kept audiences coming back for more. With the confirmation of the third installment, fans can look forward to another fun-filled and thrilling ride.
However, the release date for Welcome 3 has not been announced yet. The confirmation of Kumar’s return to the Welcome franchise and Hera Pheri 3 are already stirring up excitement among his fans and comedy lovers alike.
