Sanjay Dutt Exits Welcome 3 Due to Scheduling and Script Disputes

Earlier this year, Firoz Nadiadwala and Akshay Kumar created a buzz by announcing the film Welcome To The Jungle through a hilarious video. They also revealed the star-studded ensemble cast, which included almost every prominent actor from the Indian film industry. One of the notable names in the cast was Sanjay Dutt, who was set to play a significant role in this Ahmed Khan-directed film. However, in a surprising turn of events, news has surfaced about Sanjay Dutt’s departure from this comedic caper. “Sanjay Dutt has cited date issues as the reason for his exit. He has communicated his concerns to his dear friend Akshay, who understands the situation and holds no ill will.
Sanjay Dutt felt that the shooting of Welcome To The Jungle was proceeding in an unplanned manner, with frequent changes in the script that disrupted his schedule. As a result, he has decided to part ways,” revealed a source close to the project. It’s worth noting that Sanjay Dutt had already completed 15 days of shooting before his exit. Now, the filmmakers are faced with a dilemma – whether to retain the footage shot by Sanjay Dutt or completely delete it and opt for a reshoot. “Sanjay Dutt has filmed some humorous portions for Welcome To The Jungle during the initial schedule, and the makers are tempted to include it in the final cut, crediting him for a guest appearance,” shared the source. Additionally, the team has come up with a quirky idea to incorporate into the screenplay, where Sanju’s character goes missing after the first few frames.
Welcome To The Jungle boasts an impressive cast, including Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal, and Suniel Shetty in key roles. Jacqueline Fernandez, Disha Patani, Raveena Tandon, and Lara Dutta also feature in the film. Fans can expect the movie to hit theaters during the Christmas 2024 period. The unexpected exit of Sanjay Dutt from Welcome To The Jungle has certainly caused a stir in the industry. However, the filmmakers are determined to navigate this situation creatively and deliver an entertaining film that lives up to the audience’s expectations.
