#WelcomeToNewYork is the kind of movie that should not have been made.

Chakri Toleti
Chakri Toleti, a renowned filmmaker down south, is making his Bollywood debut with Welcome To New York. With such an impeccable set of actors backing the film, Welcome To New York could actually be the kind of laugh riot that the makers want it to be. Having made films like Billa II, Unnaipol Oruvan and Eenadu, Chakri’s talent as a filmmaker remains unquestioned. While critics have their doubts about Karan the actor, his camaraderie with Riteish Deshmukh in the trailer gave us all the right kind of vibes and they are even hilarious. His on-point comic timing and dialogue delivery have raised our expectations from Welcome To New York. Riteish Deshmukh and Karan Johar
Apart from Diljit Dosanjh, Welcome to New York also stars Karan Johar and Riteish Deshmukh. Bollywood’s first self-referential comedy
While B-town celebrities taking jibes at the Hindi film industry and even themselves has probably become a thing at the glitzy award shows, it still remains an unexplored genre for a Bollywood movie. It also helps that Karan has been a regular host at Bollywood Award shows and that is the sequence we saw in the trailer. However, Welcome to New York is also his first comedy, we are looking forward to how this one pans out. Welcome to New York will also star Sonakshi Sinha, Rana Daggubati, Lara Dutta and Boman Irani. Rest of the cast
The list doesn’t end there. In one of the comic sequences in the trailer, we saw Karan Johar give a death sentence to a man because he dared to watch Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, well, if that isn’t self-deprecating humour, what is? Though Diljit has earlier done some fantastic roles in Phillauri and Udta Punjab, this will be the first time Diljit will be seen in a comic role, which has been his forte in Punjabi cinema. Diljit Dosanjh
Welcome to New York is popular Punjabi artist Diljit Dosanjh’s third Bollywood film.
Welcome To New York: Fan reactions

In an interview with DNA, Sonakshi Sinha said, “The makers came to me with the concept of a stage reality film. They told me they would shoot it at an award show, with everybody doing a cameo in it and having funny scenes. I wanted to see what kind of an experience it would be. And, it was amazing.” I found it interesting and felt I should be a part of this.

Welcome To New York has so far made more news because of a song by Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, than the film itself. The film’s comic dialogues and situations seem to be its USP, along with a special song featuring Salman Khan who recreates his Dabangg magic with Sonakshi. Trade analyst Girish Johar has said that Diljit’s north India popularity, mainly in Punjab and the neighbouring states will be an advantage to the film, which will make anywhere around Rs 10 crore in its opening weekend.
