Asin is all set to star in the sequel of Welcome. She will be playing the sister of underworld don, Uday Shetty played by Nana Patekar. Earlier, the makers have considered Sonakshi Sinha for the role but she could not do it citing dates issue. Asin signed the dotted line on Sunday. So, Sonakshi’s loss is Asin’s gain now. The sequel will go on floors very soon in Mumbai. Reports also suggest that Amitabh Bachchan will be replacing Feroz Khan in the movie.
