Mocking Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar and iconic Bollywood movies like SHOLAY, KARAN ARJUN, BAAHUBALI, KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI and more, the trailer of WELCOME TO NEW YORK is amusing.
A cocktail of Annes Bazmee, David Dhawan and Sajid Khan, the trailer opens with Punjabi superstar Diljit Dosanjh in a spoofy dig on iconic SHOLAY dialogue “ kitne aadmi thein’ originally said by Amjad Khan. What follows is a continues dig on SRK by R Riteish Deshmukh, Karan Johar’s self-mockery, dig on BAAHUBALI, KARAN ARJUN, KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI, MS DHONI : THE UNTOLD STORY and a mockery on Bollywood awards.
Touted as Bollywood’s first 3D comedy film, the movie stars Sonakshi Sinha, Diljit Dosanjh, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Karan Johar and Riteish Deshmukh. Rana Dagubatti and Sushant Singh Rajput also make a special appearance in the film directed by Chakri Toleti.
The trailer of the movie was launched by Salman Khan. The superstar took to his social media handle and posted by saying, “Ho gaya tum sab ka? Ye raha #WTNYTrailer – http://bit.ly/WTNY-Trailer @poojafilms @WizFilmsIN.”
Director Chakri Toleti says, "We have an extraordinary cast in our film, but the beauty is how they complement each other. It was a pleasure working with such talented actors, especially in comedy, timing is everything."
Veteran Producer Vashu Bhagnani says,"Salman has been most gracious in believing in our film and supporting it. We believe the best way to entertain is through laughter and WELCOME TO NEW YORK has tons of it. It's an out-an-out laugh riot."
Wiz Films' Andre Timmins adds, "We approached Salman to launch our film’s trailer and the generous person that he is, was more than happy to oblige. Just by seeing the WELCOME TO NEW YORK trailer you will understand what we have been able to achieve with some of Bollywood's biggest stars there to entertain you.”
