Producer Vashu Bhagnani has managed to achieve what no Bollywood film-maker has so far. Vashu’s upcoming production Welcome To Karachi starring his actor-son Jackky Bhagnani and Arshad Warsi has become the first film to go to Pakistan as far as Bollywood film promotions are concerned.
It’s learnt that the Ministry of Pakistan has personally invited the cast and crew of Welcome To Karachi to visit Pakistan and promote the film.
A source close to the project informs, “It’s quite a big achievement not just for Bollywood but for the entire country. Since the film has Karachi word mentioned in the title and talks about the relations between India and Pakistan, the Pakistan government may have come up with the idea to promote the movie in Pakistan.”
Vashu Bhagnani couldn’t stop smiling as he says, “I’m very happy that Welcome To Karachi is the first film to go to Pakistan for film promotion. I’m highly obliged with the Pakistan government to invite us for our film promotion in Pakistan. It’s not just making Bollywood proud but also our country. I’m looking forward to travel to Pakistan along with my movie cast and crew.”
Welcome to Karachi was also extensively filmed in the United Kingdom last year.
