The sequel to the 2007 movie Welcome has been in the pipeline for a while and it was recently confirmed that Akshay Kumar won’t take forward his role from the original, but John Abraham will be cast in the leading role. Katrina Kaif was slated to star opposite John, but now one hears that Sonakshi Sinha might bag the part.
If true, then we might soon see John romancing Sonakshi for the first time on screen in this comedy by director Anees Bazmee. Incidentally, not long back, John Abraham had expressed his desire to work with Sonakshi.
So far Sonakshi Sinha has only paired with Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. She will be seen opposite Ranveer Singh in Lootera and Imran Khan in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again.
Welcome 2 is slated to go on the floors in June and buzz is that Mallika Sherawat too will be replaced by Kainaat Arora in the sequel. In the first part, Mallika had played a siren.
It is being rumoured that John Abraham has charged a whopping Rs. 15 crore for Welcome Back.
