What is in the Welcome To The Jungle promo
The promo opens with the entire star cast dressed up in military uniform and standing in three rows along with their guns. They all try to sing the signature Welcome tune. Disha Patani even gives a special touch to it by adding some more weight with her singing expertise. Daler Mehndi and Mika spoil it by singing Tunak Tunak Tun until Arshad Warsi asks them to stop it. Sanjay Dutt says, “Paaji khud ka gana theek se gaate nahi ho ek dusre ka gana kyu kharab karte ho (you can’t sing your own songs properly, why do you spoil each other’s songs)?” Suniel Shetty even asks, “Kaun leke aaya yaar inhe (who brought them here)?” asks what is that person who makes the sound of an instrument, and a young girl answers that it’s calld acapella. Finally as they begin to sing again, Disha tries to act smart by adding her own music before Akshay shuts her up asking if its a solo performance or a group performance.
The promo also confirms that the film will release on December 20, 2024 and will be directed by Ahmed Khan. Talking about the film, Arshad Warsi had told Hindustan Times in July, “The scale of Welcome 3: the cost, the climax, is unreal. It is an insanely larger-than-life theatrical film which I will be a part of. It has me, Akshay Kumar, Sanju (Sanjay Dutt), Paresh Rawal and lots of other people.”
