Welcome opens today in UK and UAE to coincide with Eid
"Welcome", the most keenly awaited commercial bonanza of the season, is releasing today in the UK & UAE. This was following a last-minute decision made by the distributors, Studio 18 and exhibitors to coincide the release of the magnum opus with Eid.
Select Cine World sites in London, Bradford and Birmingham will open "Welcome" later this evening, as will the independent cinemas in London.
In sharp contrast, "Welcome" will release this afternoon across full shows in Dubai, RAK, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Sharjah, Bahrain and other centres in the UAE.
The festive season's most awaited release, WELCOME, marks the coming together yet again of two powerhouse performers who have been lucky mascots for each other at the box-office.
As Dr. Ghungroo and his nephew Rajeev, Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar push their creative limits in this madcap mother of all mafia comedies for the 17th time together over 13 years!
WELCOME will see the two stars in another match of wits after they featured together in a number of box-office scorchers like Mohra, Insaaf, Aarzoo, Barood, Angaarey, Aan - Men At Work, Mr. & Mrs. Khiladi, Awara Pagal Deewana, Aankhen, Bhool Bhulaiyya, Bhagam Bhag, Hera Pheri, Phir Hera Pheri, Aitraaz and Garam Masala.
As noted recently, the movie marks quite a few records already, with Anil-Nana coming together after 19 years, Anil-Feroz Khan after 21 years and Akshay-Katrina inching towards consolidating their position as the most commercially successful leading pair of recent times.
The Akshay-Paresh magic mama-bhanja combination in WELCOME is sure to bring the house down!
In a bid to have the audiences in splits for 155 minutes, "WELCOME" brings together the biggest and most successful comic actors of the industry.
Feroz Khan, Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal, Vijay Raaz, Asrani and Mushtaque Sheikh, all comedy veterans, have converged for the first time together to form this laugh riot. Yesteryear's villain, Ranjeet, also makes a serio-comic cameo.
Releasing this week, "WELCOME" heralds a long festive week. The film is already being touted as the year's biggest comedy with one of the most impressive line-up of stars ever. Audiences worldwide will again see the hugely successful jodi of Akshay-Paresh share screen space with stalwarts like Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Style Icon, Feroz Khan in this much-awaited romp.
With "WELCOME", Akshay Kumar looks set to seal his Super Star status with dollops of élan!
