The first look of Welcome Back is out. A sequel to the 2007 comedy film Welcome, Welcome Back stars John Abraham, Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Naseeruddin Shah and Shruti Haasan in lead roles.
Anees Bazmee, director of the film, has roped in John Abraham to play Akshay Kumar's role from the first movie. Eros Now, the online on-demand entertainment portal from Eros International, shared the pictures on Sunday online.
Although Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, who had starred in the first part of the franchise will not reprise their roles in Welcome Back, the film still includes a huge line-up starting from Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal returning with their respective roles.
Among the new actors joining the cast are John Abraham, Naseeruddin Shah, Shruti Haasan and Dimple Kapadia.
The first look of the film was launched in a unique style by introducing every actor with their respective role. While the names of the characters being played by all the actors have been mentioned in their introduction, the character essayed by Shruti has been left a mystery.
John, who looks dapper in a white suit along with a gun in his hand, shared the official poster of the film on Twitter. "First Look #WelcomeBack @ErosNow," he captioned the photograph.
Anil, who is returning with his role of Majnu Bhai, too shared the first look on the micro-blogging site and tweeted: "#WelcomeBack...naam toh suna hoga...miss toh kiya hoga!"..
Welcome Back is slated to release on September 4. The trailer of the film will release on Monday.
