Fans of the Welcome franchise were eagerly awaiting the announcement of the cast for Welcome 3. However, they were surprised to learn that the most-loved actors Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor would not be reprising their roles as Uday Shetty and Majnu Bhai, respectively. There have been many rumors about why the two actors decided to leave the film. Some reports say that they had creative differences with the director, while others say that they were not happy with the financial terms.
In the midst of all the speculation, Nana Patekar has finally spoken out about his absence from the film. He said that he was not approached for the role and that he would have loved to be a part of it if he had been asked. Patekar also denied the rumors that he had creative differences with the director. He said that he has a good relationship with the director and that he would never walk away from a project due to creative differences.
Earlier, a media report suggested that Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor had to face financial losses due to delayed payments and non-payment of TDS. The report also said that there was a major showdown between Patekar and producer Firoz Nadiadwala because of the latter’s unprofessional behavior. A source close to the development told a media outlet that the production of Welcome Back was mismanaged, which led to delays in payments and non-payment of TDS. This caused financial losses to not only Patekar and Kapoor, but also other actors and technicians.
The source also said that there was a major showdown between Patekar and Nadiadwala during the filming of Welcome Back. The argument was reportedly so heated that Patekar walked off the set. It is believed that this incident was the main reason why Patekar and Kapoor decided not to return for Welcome 3. It is important to note that these are just allegations and that Nadiadwala has not commented on the matter. However, the reports have raised questions about the working conditions on the sets of Welcome Back and the professionalism of Nadiadwala.
