Having gone through a super successful year with three top-ranking
comedies, Namastey London, Heyy Babyy and Bhool Bhulaiyaa,
Akshay Kumar is gearing up for the release of Welcome, his
next big laugh-out-loud comedy, releasing on December 20 worldwide.
Welcome, being touted as the biggest release of Eid and
Christmas, marks the return of the Akshay-Katrina pairing for a
third time, besides assembling the biggest ensemble cast comprising
Paresh Rawal, Anil Kapoor, Feroz Khan, Nana Patekar&Mallika
Sherawat under one roof.
Akshay, shooting for Singh Is King in Australia at
present, laughs, "Earlier, everyone said I was synonymous with
action. I bagged the Khiladi tag. Now with my last few films being
successful comedies, I've become synonymous with comedy!"
about his hit run at the box-office this year, he smiles, "I'm
happy that the three comedies I did this year had the box-office
laughing. Welcome is the king of them all! It's a
laugh-riot from the word go and I hope everyone enjoys it during
the festive season as it is my last major comedy of 2007!"
So is Akshay bidding adieu to comedy? "Not at all! Comedy comes
as naturally to me as action! Next year I have a variety of films
on the anvil. I am getting back to action with Chandni Chowk To
China and Tashan. But for me now I want everyone to
concentrate on Welcome and Welcome the New Year
with a bang!" he signs off.
Welcome is an Indian Films release through Studio
