“KOLA LAKA VELARI” from “WELCOME”
Produced by industry stalwart, Firoz Nadiadwala (Phir Hera Pheri) and directed by Anees Bazmee (No Entry), Akshay Kumar is supported by an impressive list of fellow industry A-listers, in a role that will see him warm the hearts of cineastes and critics once more.
Akshay Kumar plays handsome and principled bachelor, Rajiv, who falls for the effervescent Sanjana (played by Akshay’s lucky lead lady from Namastey London, Katrina Kaif) on a cruise trip, unaware that he is soon to become embroiled with his sweetheart’s troupe of sibling serio-comic mobsters.
Commenting about the imminent release of Welcome, Akshay comments, “I am extremely excited about the release of Welcome. I really wanted to get involved in a film project that goes back to the true essence of the Bollywood ‘masala’ movie, and Welcome is exactly that. There is something in it for everyone; it is high on entertainment and feelgood factor and is cinema for the soul. Filming Welcome was such a pleasurable experience, and that will certainly come across to audiences who see this movie. Welcome is a befitting climax to 2007 and is the perfect film for the festive season.”
