Sanjay Dutt exits Welcome 3 due to date issues

Has Sanjay Dutt bid adieu to Welcome To The Jungle?

Fans of the Welcome franchise that terribly disappointed that their faves Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor are not part of Welcome 3, which is titled as Welcome To The Jungle. The Munnabhai Jodi of Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi had stepped in for them. It seems Sanjay Dutt has now exited the project. A leading Bollywood entertainment site has reported that Sanjay Dutt is facing date issues. This is why the macho star has apparently decided to exit the project. With Welcome 3 seeing reported sudden shift of dates and script, Sanjay Dutt is unable to accommodate the changes. The superstar has a number of projects in Bollywood and South India. 

It seems Sanjay Dutt has already filmed for more than 15 days. The creative are planning a whacky twist with which they can bring him back in what would be more like an extended guest appearance. The report also said that Sanjay Dutt spoke to his good friend Akshay Kumar about the issues and he agreed with him. Anees Bazmee who made the first two films of the Welcome series said that he cannot imagine the film without Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar. 

It was said that Anil Kapoor could not be a part of the movie as he demanded a whopping sum as fee from producer Firoz Nadiadwala. But later sources said that the veteran was upset with some of the reported problems that cropped up after Welcome 2 in terms of payment. Welcome To The Jungle will be directed by Ahmed Khan.
