One and two star ratings and doomsday prophecies by the wise men, regarding WELCOME seems to have fallen on deaf ears, as far as the paying audience is concerned. The film has not only netted an impressive 16-17 crores during its first weekend from India, but has sustained very well even during the weekdays.
The Feroze, Nana, Anil, Akshay, Katrina and Mallika (guest appearance) starrer has shocked the intelligentsia by its amazing collections from every nook and corner of India and not just circuits which favour comedy. Even in the Overseas, the movie has done exceedingly well, especially in the UAE and UK.
Trade expects that despite its high selling prices, WELCOME will get into the profit zone during the second weekend itself.
