WELCOME getting ready for release - Anees Bazmee


The film may have taken a wee bit long to arrive at the theaters but the wait promises to be worth it.

WELCOME, Anees Bazmee's latest offering after his super-hit NO ENTRY, is in news once again as it reaches the finishing lines. Says Anees Bazmee, "Yes, now we are in the process of wrapping up the film. Film is well into post production stage now and we are investing good effort and money into special effects."

A comedy film requiring special effects? "That's true. The film's climax requires us to incorporate a good deal of special effects. There are other intermediate scenes in the film as well which need animation bits. We are leaving no stones unturned to make sure that the film turns out to be a polished, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable affair."

But hasn't the film taken quite a while to reach the deadline? One continues to wait for the next laugh riot from Bazmee. "It is always a challenge when you have such a big star cast at hands", confesses Bazmee, "When you have top actors like Akshay Kumar, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Firoz Khan, Katrina Kaif and Mallika Sherawat, it takes time to get the principal shooting wrapped up. After that dubbing etc. for so many actors requires an effort as well. Nevertheless, things seem to be going quite well now and we are looking at an October/November timeframe for the film's release."
