Nana Patekar & Anil Kapoor to be Replaced by THIS Duo in Welcome 3

When we talk about Bollywood’s comedy films we surely cannot miss Welcome. This film had the right amount of comedy to tickle our bones. From the overloaded drama to everlasting comedy, this franchise never failed to disappoint us. 

Of all the characters, Uday Shetty and Majnu Bhai were everyone’s favourites. The duo’s friendship was the perfect example of how friends should be. Nothing can be funnier than both falling for the same girl and trying to win her heart. 

Welcome Back was a delight to watch too! The film managed to cross the ₹100 crore mark easily and received immense appreciation. 

Fans have been waiting for the announcement of Welcome 3 and the good news is, it is confirmed that Welcome 3 shall release soon. But there’s bad news for the fans as well. 

Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar won’t be returning to their cult and iconic roles of Majnu Bhai and Uday Shetty. Their characters will be replaced by the Munna Bhai duo Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi. 

The reason for the replacement is believed to be monetary disagreements between the duo and the producer. 

As per the reports by Pinkvilla, Akshay Kumar will be returning to his role of Rajiv but Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor will not. 

Quoting a publication, it said “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.”

The film’s script Is ready and it is expected that it will hit the big screens next year, once Akshay finishes shooting for Jolly LLB 3.
