MUMBAI: Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor and Akshay Kumar will come together for the first time on screen in a song for producer Firoz Nadiadwala’s Welcome.
The song will be picturised overseas by director Anees Bazmee. Welcome also stars Feroze Khan, Katrina Kaif, Mallika Sherawat and Paresh Rawal.
“After completing the last schedule at Lonavala, we now have just two songs left to shoot for Welcome.
