Anil Kapoor led Welcome did invite high levels of serotonin when it was released & kept us laughing for days non-stop. Even after a decade & a half the film has the same impact on all its viewers. The meme making community’s creative take on Majnu bhai have left us in splits on multiple occasions. Anil Kapoor shares why Majnu is his favorite character too. 

A while ago, Anil Kapoor took to his social media handle and shared a story which had a collage of stills from the film and wrote a note of gratitude that read, "15 years ago Majnu bhai picked up the paintbrush and the rest is history! # Welcome was, is and always will be one of my most cherished films for the sheer joy it has brought people! It's amazing how some stories & characters just live on even years later... Thank you for giving #Welcome & Majnu Bhai so much love!"


The fandom of Majnu bhai is not short lived. It is so crazy that coffee mugs, pillow covers & even t-shirts bearing the character became audiences’ top picks. Bollywood star Vicky Kaushal recreated his famous painting on social media which gained instant popularity & buzz. Kriti Sanon too gained eyeballs for wearing a dress which had Majnu bhai’s painting on it. Majnu bhai is no longer a character but an emotion that will always stay with us. 

Welcome is an iconic rom-com which was released on 21 December 2007. The film was directed by Anees Bazmee having a multi hyphenated Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Katrina Kaif, Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal, Malaika Sherawat, Feroz Khan & more.
