Akshay Kumar has two new co-stars, Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi in Welcome 3. According to reports, Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor have exited the project, making way for Dutt and Warsi, who were a part of the very successful Munnabhai series of films. 

A source revealed, “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.”

When asked why Patekar and Kapoor are not a part of Welcome 3, the source shared, “It’s a case of monetary disagreements between the duo and the producer.”

The shoot for Welcome 3 is likely to begin next year after Akhsay Kumar finished shooting for Jolly LLB 3 and Housefull 5.
