As reported by Pinkvilla, Suniel Shetty will join the comic caper. “Suniel Shetty shares a close bond with Firoz Nadiadwala and Akshay Kumar and when the opportunity to be a part of Welcome came his way, he was instantly on board. He is all excited to play a role that has not been explored before in the franchise. It’s a comic role, but in a new light with a new character shade,” a source told the entertainment portal.

The source added, “It’s a new character that he will be playing and has nothing to do with Yeda Anna or Shyam from Awara Pagal Deewana and Hera Pheri.”

Earlier, it was reported that Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor are no longer part of the project. The makers have locked Christmas 2024 as the release date for the third installment.

The film is expected to go on floors next year after Akshay Kumar wraps Jolly LLB 3 and Housefull 5.
