‘Welcome Back’, which did not have any other big films clashing at the box office, is now expected to have an even better week. The sequel to the 2007 film is the comeback vehicle for actor Shiney Ahuja, who had faded into obscurity after he was embroiled in a legal case.
Shiney is seen essaying the “spoilt” son of Naseeruddin, who plays a blind don named “Wanted Bhai” in the film.
‘Welcome Back’ is also going strong at the overseas box office.
#WelcomeBack has a SOLID start Overseas. Thu+Fri: $ 1.2 million [₹ 8 cr]. SUPERB!
