The "Welcome Back" team is back to tickle the funny bones, but this time on Television. Though released in September last year, the world television premiere of "Welcome Back" will take place on Zee Cinema at 8 p.m. on Saturday
The Anees Bazmee directorial is a sequel to the 2007 film "Welcome," which had Akshay Kumar in the lead role. The comedy entertainer, which was released on Sep. 15, had John Abraham, Shruti Haasan, Anil Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Nana Patekar, Dimple Kapadia, Naseeruddin Shah and Sakshi Maggo in pivotal roles.
"Welcome Back" became a huge success at the box office and went on to earn Rs. 96 crore at the domestic box office. The film had received mixed reviews from the critics, but the audience appreciated the film, which made it a box office success.
Meanwhile, this is the first time Nana and Naseeruddin shared screen space on the silver screen. Talking about his equation with Naseeruddin, Nana said that it was great to share screen space with the actor.
"It's been 40 years since I and Naseer have been working in the industry but we have never done a film together. Earlier, most films were offered to Naseeruddin Shah and none to me. I used to pray to God that he should meet with an accident or fracture his leg or something so that I could get his roles. But it never happened and I lost faith in God," Nana said in a statement.
