So far the production house Eros International has been riding high with the success of their recent releases Badlapur and Tanu Weds Manu Returns. Now, continuing their winning streak we hear that Eros has apparently acquired the worldwide distribution rights of Welcome Back and Hera Pheri 3 for a whopping Rs. 130 crores.
As for the films, Welcome Back that features John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Paresh Rawal and Shruti Haasan and is co-produced by Firoz Nadiadwala and Swiss Entertainment has been suffering multiple delays, despite being complete. However the film is expected to release later this year. Commenting on the same Sameer Shaikh of Swiss Entertainment said, “Welcome is testament to the mind boggling genius of Anees Bazmee’s commercial cinema. We are thrilled that deal has been finalized with Eros and its filmmaker and are hope full that Welcome back will be a bigger family entertainer than Welcome.
On the other hand Hera Pheri 3 that recently went on floors featuring Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham Paresh Rawal and Suneil Shetty is slated for a December release.
Apart from these films Eros has two more big ticket releases this year in the form of the Salman Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan and the Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra starrer Bajirao Mastani.
