A few days ago, news came that Sanjay Dutt has dropped out of Akshay Kumar starrer film 'Welcome to the Jungle'. He has decided to leave this film due to health problems. While the actor himself shared a video on social media and informed about his arrival. It was told that Sanjay Dutt had shot for only one day and after that he distanced himself from this project. Now news has come out about the inclusion of a veteran actor in it. His name is Jackie Shroff. Jackie Shroff has many big films. One of these is 'Singham Again', whose shooting he was seen doing in Kashmir. And now he is also going to be a part of this adventure comedy. The report of 'Pinkvilla' claims that Jackie Shroff has been selected to play an important role in 'Welcome to the Jungle'.

Exchange before the release of the film

The source is quoted as saying, 'Jackie Shroff has been shooting for Welcome to the Jungle quietly ever since Sanjay Dutt walked out of the film. There has been a new twist in the story of Welcome to the Jungle as the makers have reworked the characters and roped in new actors for some parts. While Suniel Shetty will now play the role that was earlier written for Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff has been brought in to play the role that Suniel Shetty had signed for.

Jackie Shroff has completed half of the shooting

Sunil Shetty and Sanjay Dutt have similar personalities. That's why the makers have taken this step so that the USP of the characters remains intact. The source said, 'The casting change happened in the month of December itself and Jackie has already shot a lot of his part in the film.' This film will be released on Christmas this year i.e. 2024 and it will be the biggest comedy film. Actors like Paresh Rawal, Disha Patani, Jacqueline Fernandez, Lara Dutta, Raveena Tandon, Rajpal Yadav, Shreyas Talpade, Tusshar Kapoor, Mika Singh and Daler Mehndi will be seen in it.
