The iconic Hindi comedy movie Welcome, which was released in 2007, is considered by fans and critics as one of the funniest Indian films of all time. The movie was helmed by Anees Bazmee and featured Katrina Kaif, Akshay Kumar, Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor and Mallika Sherawat in prominent roles. The film had also turned out to be a hit at the box-office and reportedly garnered Rs 122 crores. But do you know that Welcome also had some connection with Charlie Chaplin's movie The Gold Rush? Read on to know more details:
As per the reports of IMDb, Welcome's climax scene was a rip-off from the Charlie Chaplin starrer The Gold Rush. The climax scene of the film was passing the parcel… of death. The ending of Welcome was more illogical than its premise. But it was more fitting than ever. Despite being a feared king of the underworld, RDX decides to play a deadly game of passing the parcel. The game was whoever the parcel aka an inflatable beach ball lands on will die. This whole scene was so much fun. Moreover, add in the architecturally impossible see-sawing house, and it was the complete package of comedy dose.
On the work front, Katrina will next be seen in Rohit Shetty’s much-awaited film Sooryavanshi alongside Akshay Kumar in the lead role. The film also features Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn. Ranveer plays the role of Simba in the film. The movie was supposed to release earlier this year but it has now been pushed forward because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The makers of the film are waiting for the theatres to reopen to release the film.
