Filmmaker Anees Bazmee is going ahead with his plans to make a sequel to his 2007 blockbuster "Welcome" and says that the part two has been titled "Welcome Back".

"I am not making 'Hera Pheri' sequel for some reason, they (director Neeraj Vora and producer Feroz Nadiadwala) are making it. I will be making 'Welcome Back', which is a sequel to 'Welcome'," Bazmee told IANS.

The first instalment of "Hera Pheri" was directed by Priyadarshan and released in 2000. The original starred Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal, Suniel Shetty and Tabu and it was a huge success. In 2006, came its sequel titled "Phir Hera Pheri" with some changes in the cast - the male lead were the same, but Tabu was replaced with Bipasha Basu and Rimi Sen. And Vora helmed the project.

Bazmee claims that "Hera Pheri 4" required the same actors - Akshay, Paresh, and Suniel.

He said: "Actually, when I wrote the script for 'Hera Pheri 4', it was such that it could be titled as sequel to 'Hera Pheri' or also as 'Welcome Back'. I wanted the original star cast for the sequel to 'Hera Pheri' but things didn't fall in place."

"Later, we even approached Abhishek Bachchan for the same film and he was very excited to do it. But due to some reason, I am not doing the film and they are doing it."

Now "Hara Pheri 4" will also be directed by Vora and produced by Nadiadwala.

What about the cast of "Welcome Back"?

"Welcome Back" cast not decided yet, Bazmee said and added that the film "will go on floors only after 'No Entry Main Entry'".

"The script for 'No Entry Main Entry' is ready and I will soon narrate the script to Salman bhai (Salman Khan)," said Bazmee.
