Welcome To New York’s trailer just dropped. And the film starring Diljit Dosanjh, Sonakshi Sinha, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Riteish Deshmukh and Karan Johar seems like a combination of Sajid Khan’s Houseful and Anees Bazmee’s Welcome series.
Welcome To New York trailer two and half minute long trailer opens with Punjabi superstar Diljit Dosanjh’s character, Gabru Hero, mouthing Amjad Khan’s iconic dialogue from Sholay, “Kitne aadmi the?”.
Sonakshi Sinha plays a fashion designer who is trying hard to make sense of the world around her. We are introducing to Karan Johar and Riteish Deshmukh, where the latter’s character challenges KJo’s style to make a movie with him instead of Shah Rukh Khan. How is meta that?
Stars like Sushant Singh Rajput (where he gets mistaken for MS Dhoni by Diljit’s character), and Baahubali fame Rana Daggubati also make an appearance, setting up the scene for jokes that might make you smile.
‘Welcome To New York’ trailer is here, and the movie, based on IIFA awards, is just a rip off of many films and actors (Shah Rukh Khan and self-mockery at the peak) combined. It has as many as six movies that have not only been mentioned but also mocked upon.
Director Chakri Toleti said about the movie, “We have an extraordinary cast in our film, but the beauty is how they compliment each other. It was a pleasure working with such talented actors, especially in comedy, timing is everything.”
Welcome To New York has been produced by Pooja Films and Wiz Films. The movie will release worldwide on February 23 and touted as India’s first 3D comedy film.
