Abraham has already replaced good friend Akshay Kumar in
Welcome Back, a sequel to
Welcome and now according to recent reports, Shruti
Hassan has replaced Katrina Kaif in the 2007 hit comedy.
Bollywood hottie John Abraham will be seen romancing Shruti
Hassan in Welcome Back. Tweeting about the fresh cast of
the sequel to the hit movie comedy, famous film critic Taran Adarsh
wrote that the film's shoot will start next month in Dubai.
"Update: Shruti Hassan signed opposite John Abraham in Welcome
Back. Co-starring Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal...," Taran posted on micro blogging site Twitter.
Earlier it was reported that the filmmakers of Welcome
Back had approached newbie Shraddha Kapoor to play the lead
female opposite John Abraham. Rumour has it that Shraddha rejected
Welcome back as she does not want to work with older actors like
John just at the starting of her career. It is said that John
Abraham is very miffed with Shraddha Kapoor because of this.
It has also been reported that superstar Amitabh Bachchan might
play the role of late Feroz Khan in the Welcome series.
The movie Welcome Back is produced by Firoz Nadiadwala and
is directed by Anees Bazmee.
