‘Welcome to the Jungle' has been creating a lot of buzz ever since the makers announced the project. The movie boasts a star-studded cast and has been making headlines ever since. However, sad news has emerged from the set. According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, Sanjay Dutt is no longer part of the comic caper.

The report reveals that after shooting for about 15 days, Sanjay Dutt has bid adieu to the film. A source close to the development stated, "Sanjay Dutt has cited date issues for his exit. He has conveyed all the issues to his dear friend Akshay, who took the points into account and holds no bad blood. Sanjay Dutt felt that the 'Welcome To The Jungle' shoot was happening in an unplanned way, with too many changes in the script, disturbing his shooting schedule. Hence, he has parted ways."

Since Sanjay Dutt has already shot for 15 days, the makers are now undecided whether to retain what he has filmed or opt for a complete re-shoot. The source added, "Sanjay Dutt has shot some funny portions of 'Welcome To The Jungle' in the first schedule, and the makers are tempted to retain his scenes and credit Sanjay Dutt for a guest appearance."

The film ‘Welcome to the Jungle' went on floors in December 2023 in Mumbai. It features a massive ensemble cast, including Akshay Kumar, Raveena Tandon, Disha Patani, Jacqueline Fernandez, Lara Dutta, Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Rajpal Yadav, Johny Lever, Kiku Sharda, Krushna Abhishek, Rahul Dev, and singer-brothers Daler Mehndi and Mika Singh.

The movie is committed to entertaining a diverse range of audiences, from children to grandparents, staying true to its comic legacy. ‘Welcome to the Jungle' guarantees an experience filled with cool comedy punches, one-liners, and the magic of the Welcome Universe.

Base Industries Group presents 'Welcome To The Jungle', produced by Firoz A. Nadiadwallah and directed by Ahmed Khan, slated for a grand theatrical release in the Christmas week, on December 20, 2024.
