Anees Bazmee to direct the Welcome Sequel

Bollywood talented director Anees Bazmee is planning to make a sequel to his 2007 hit “Welcome” and says that the part two is titled “Welcome Back”.

“I am not making ‘Hera Pheri’ sequel for some reason, they (director Neeraj Vora and producer Feroz Nadiadwala) are making it. I will be making ‘Welcome Back’, which is a sequel to ‘Welcome’,”

Bazmee told.

First part of Hera Pheri was directed by Priyadarshan and was released in 2000; it featured Akshay, Paresh, Sunil and Tabu in the main leads and was a very huge success.

In 2006, came its sequel titled “Phir Hera Pheri” in which male leads were same but Tabu was replaced with Bipasha Basu and Rimi Sen, the sequel was directed by Neeraj Vora.

“Actually, when I wrote the script for ‘Hera Pheri 4’, it was such that it could be titled as sequel to ‘Hera Pheri’ or also as ‘Welcome Back’. I wanted the original star cast for the sequel to ‘Hera Pheri’ but things didn’t fall in place.”

“Later, we even approached Abhishek Bachchan for the same film and he was very excited to do it. But due to some reason, I am not doing the film and they are doing it.”

Now “Hera Pheri 4” will also be directed by Vora and produced by Nadiadwala.

When asked about the cast of “Welcome Back” he said,

“Welcome Back” cast not decided yet, Bazmee said and added that the film “will go on floors only after ‘No Entry Main Entry'”.

“The script for ‘No Entry Main Entry’ is ready and I will soon narrate the script to Salman bhai (Salman Khan),”

said Bazmee.
