When contacted, producer Firoz Nadiadwala confirmed the news. “'Welcome Back' is releasing on Christmas — that’s all I can say. I don’t know about other films,” he said.

'Welcome Back' is the sequel to 'Welcome' that was made in 2007. The film stars John, Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor in lead roles. It may be recalled here that 'Bombay Velvet' was the first film to announce its Christmas release earlier this year.

Then came the announcement that Aamir Khan’s film, 'Peekay', will release on the same day; this film was initially slated to release in June. It is said that Aaamir chose a Christmas release as he believes it to be lucky for him (his last release, 'Dhoom 3', broke records at the box office).

With 'Welcome Back' joining the fray, one will have to wait and watch to find out who will come out tops in this battle.
