Welcome to New York has a massive star cast in terms of the regions they are covering to make sure that audience’s of all strata come for this film. Film primarily stars Sonakshi Sinha, Diljit Dosanjh, Karan Johar, Ritesh Deshmukh, Rana Daggubati, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani and Lara Dutta with a special cameo from superstar Salman Khan. This star cast covers the entire India as in Diljit Dosanjh will get the audience from Punjab while Rana Daggubati will rope in the south Indian people but since there are so many one wonders who has a cameo and whoever is coming with an actual role.
Going by one of the worst edited trailers in the world, Sushant and Rana definitely have cameos maybe extended ones but certainly not an actual role, which just deducts the main star cast. Karan is barely an actor as everybody has seen in Anurag Kashyap directorial Bombay Velvet and on top of it he is asked to play a double role in comedy which requires some serious funny bones and legit acting experience of years to ham one’s way out of that kind of performance.
Diljit is known for his comic timing but that’s mostly in Punjabi and the plot of this film is so bizarre that one can’t find it with telescope if it was attached to the script. Even the total non-sensical films of Sajid Khan, Anees Bazmee and Priyadarshan set up some kind of outline for the audience to not feel entirely lost and the film follows an arc but this trailer is beyond everything. All the dialogues in the trailer are so unfunny that one can directly see through the producer’s meeting in this film which is shouting that since we do not have anything in this film, let’s bring in big actors and mark a dark day in their lives by releasing this imbalance amalgamation of audio video footage.
