Jumeirah Zabeel Saray has just released this picture of Anil Kapoor on the lush set of Welcome Back, the sequel to the Bollywood blockbuster Welcome.

The setting is the grand lobby of the ­Ottoman-inspired luxury Jumeirah Zabeel Saray resort on The Palm.

The hotel was also featured as Kapoor’s Indian palace in the black-tie ball scene in the 2010 Hollywood blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which also starred Tom Cruise.

Kapoor has been joined for Welcome Back by the actors John Abraham, Paresh Rawal, Nana Patekar and the actress Shruti Haasan alongside the director ­Anees Bazmee and the producer Firoz Nadiadwala.

The film’s cast and crew have been filming at locations across Dubai including other hotels, a selection of private villas and the Dubai International Airport.

Welcome Back is scheduled for release in March.
