'Welcome Back' starts where its predecessor had ended. The tale of two gangster-turned-gentlemen brothers-in-arms Majnu Bhai and Uday Shetty forms the core of the story.
While Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar have reprised their roles from the original, 'Welcome Back' sees John Abraham stepping in instead of Akshay Kumar and Shruti Haasan in place of Katrina Kaif.
