Release date of Akshay Kumar's Welcome To The Jungle gets pushed

According to a report published in Hindustan Times, it has been revealed that the makers of Ahmed Khan’s directorial are planning to push its release date. This means that fans will have to wait a little longer for the impending installment of the beloved Welcome franchise. The reason behind the postponement is accredited to long pending work on the film.

A source close to the development informed the publication that the film has been created on a grand scale. The first schedule of the film was a ‘lengthy shoot’ which was wrapped-up last month in May in Aarey, Maharashtra with the entire star cast.

“However, this was just the first of several schedules planned. Additionally, significant VFX work will be required after principal photography concludes. Given these factors, a December 20 release seems unlikely,” the source was quoted as saying.


If the report turns out to be true, the comedy caper might also avert its big clash with Aamir Khan’s Sitaare Zameen Par.
