Akshay changes Welcome title track
[an error occurred while processing this directive]Those who've heard the soundtrack of Welcome know that the lyrics of the title song go, 'Welcome, Welcome To The Party, Welcome...'

But on watching the promos on television, one sees the inclusion of the word Christmas: 'Welcome, Welcome To The Christmas Party, Welcome...'

It was Akshay Kumar's idea to orient the fun-filled number towards the Christmas season when this film is appropriately releasing. After this was discussed with director Aneez Bazmee and producer Firoz Nadiadwala, Wajid of Sajid-Wajid was asked to come in and make the minor addition of Christmas, which has been retained for the film's on-air promotion and in the final print as well!

Remarks Akshay, 'Welcome is a film about fun, frolic and laughter. It's a film about celebration and we agreed that it would be nice to incorporate the Christmas angle in the title track to make it even more topical and relevant to the festive season.'

Welcome releases on December 20 by Indian Films through Studio 18.
