Production delays impact Welcome To The Jungle’s release date

The postponement is reportedly due to the ongoing production. The film still requires multiple shooting schedules, making meeting the tight Christmas 2024 deadline impossible. This shift in release date avoids a potential box office clash with Aamir Khan's Sitare Zameen Par and the Hollywood release of Mufasa: The Lion King, both slated for December 2024.

Welcome To The Jungle’s original release plans

Earlier reports indicated that producer Firoz A Nadiadwala intended to release Welcome To The Jungle during the lucrative Christmas weekend, mirroring the release strategy of the first Welcome film in 2007. However, as per latest updates, the production timeline necessitated a change in plans.

The film stars Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Arshad Warsi, Paresh Rawal, Johny Lever, Rajpal Yadav, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Krushna Abhishek, Kiku Sharda, Daler Mehndi, Mika Singh, Rahul Dev, Mukesh Tiwari, Sharib Hashmi, Inaamulhaq, Zakir Hussain, Yashpal Sharma, Raveena Tandon, Lara Dutta, Jacqueline Fernandez and Disha Patani. Sanjay Dutt, too, was a part of the film originally but has now opted out.

On a similar note, it is worth mentioning here that Aamir Khan has recently completed shooting for Sitare Zameen Par. A video has gone viral on social media which shows Aamir Khan spending quality time with the cast and the crew of the film. The actor is seen sharing a conversation in the video. Another photo shows a clapboard of the film, which confirms the shoot has wrapped.
