Welcome To New York is the latest film from Puja entertainment which is India’s first comedy film in 3d. Film was announced quite sometime back and the star cast is stellar. Karan Johar might be playing the double role in the film while rest of the cast includes Diljit Dosanjh, Sonakshi Sinha, Riteish Deshmukh and Boman Irani in important roles. Rana Daggubati has also joined in the cast with Lara Dutta, it is a massive and quite unique star cast. Karan Johar is back in a role after his catastrophic attempt in Ranbir Kapoor starrer Bombay Velvet.
Diljit will be doing his second Hindi film after a very successful Udta Punjab. Sonakshi Sinha is coming right of her disastrous film and performance in and as Noor. Rani Daggubati is doing Hindi film after a long time as his last two films Baahubali: The Conclusion and Nene Raju Nene Mantri were Telugu blockbusters. Riteish is everbody’s henchman for a comedy film in Hindi film industry and a multi starrer as he is Housefull franchise and Dhamaal as well. For a comedy film, one gets a package deal that includes Boman Irani with Deshmukh as he too is in both Housefull and Dhamaal.
Release date of the film is 23rd February and must be well thought since the entire Hindi film domino has been crushed under the release of Padmaavat. Makers have just about a month to put the trailer out and promote films with the best of their capabilities though it should not be hard since the cast is massive and covers literally the entire Indian spectrum in it. Rana will grab the south Indian audience, Dosanjh is a very big star in Punjab and Deshmukh has his reach in Marathi based audience while Sonakshi Sinha and Karan Johar can try to pull in whatever audience base is under their radar.
