In 2015, a sequel titled “Welcome Back” was introduced, with John Abraham taking over the lead role from Akshay Kumar. Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar reprised their well-known roles. However, the sequel fell short of recapturing the charm of its predecessor and received unfavorable reviews from audiences and critics alike.

Looking ahead nine years, “Welcome 3,” officially subtitled “Welcome To The Jungle,” is scheduled for release on Christmas 2024. Akshay Kumar is set to reprise his role in the franchise, while Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi are taking on the roles of Uday Bhai and Majnu Bhai respectively. This comes as Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar declined participation in the third installment.

Reportedly, Anil demanded a fee of Rs 18 crore for his involvement, leading to his replacement. In addition to Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi, and Paresh Rawal, Suniel Shetty will also join the ensemble cast, portraying the character Awara Paagal Deewana.Yeda Anna, according to a report by Bollywood Hungama.
