Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 director Anees Bazmee reveals Akshay Kumar starrer Welcome was planned as romantic film – Bollywood news

Anees Bazmee is the man of the moment as the filmmaker has provided relief to Bollywood after his latest release Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 starring Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani is running successfully at the box office. The horror-comedy became the biggest Bollywood opener of 2022 collecting Rs 14.11 crore on its release date of May 20.

Though Akshay Kumar isn’t a part of the sequel, Anees has collaborated with the Prithviraj actor previously on highly successful comedies Welcome and Singh Is Kinng. And now, in a recent interview, the director has revealed that the 2007 cult comedy Welcome was initially started as a love story.

Talking to Pinkvilla, Anees said, “Back in the 2000s, Akshay Kumar Ji called me after watching Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha. He asked me to write a script for him, and I attempted to make a romantic film. Very few know that Welcome started off as a love story back in the day. But as the writing progressed, it turned out to be a comedy”.

“The story lent itself to all those quirky characters, though it was essentially a love story of Rajiv and Sanjana. I can’t disrupt my flow as a writer. My process is to enter the tunnel, but then, I don’t know how the tunnel ends”, added Bazmee. Welcome was a box office blockbuster and is still regarded as one of the best comedies.

Released in the same year as the prequel Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Welcome was the second-highest-grossing film of 2007.
