'Welcome Back' delayed again

The release of 'Welcome Back' has apparently been pushed ahead due to the unavailability of the cast to shoot the remaining portions

If sources are to be believed, Anees Bazmi’s next film, 'Welcome Back', will be delayed once again. “A big chunk of the film needs to be shot. But it so happens that its actors are already caught up in other projects and thus don’t have any time to devote to 'Welcome Back',” says a source.

The source adds that all actors from the film had already allotted their dates to Anees Bazmi, but when the film’s shooting veered off schedule, the cast had to go back to working on other projects. “So far, only Anil Kapoor has allotted his dates to finish the remaining shoot for the film, whereas all other actors, including John Abraham and Shruti Haasan, haven’t been able to give any dates. This has left the makers of Welcome Back in a fix,” adds the source.

The source adds that the Dubai schedule of the film is yet to start. “There’s also a song that needs to be shot,” says the source.

Anees Bazmi, however, says that only one schedule of the film is left. “It will be shot in Dubai. Apart from this, everything else has been shot already, including the climax of the film. There’s only a few days’ delay in the schedule, save for that the film is on track. So I don’t think we will need to push ahead the film’s release,” he says.
