A few years ago, we got a marvelous film like Namastey London which impressed a lot of people in India. Since then, people are waiting for the makers to come up with a sequel to the film. Responding to the constant requests of a fan, a sequel in on the cards. However, as per the reports suggest, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif will not be the part of the sequel. Instead, Arjun Kapoor has been approached to play the male lead in the movie which is going to be titled as ‘Namastey England.’ The source says:
“Arjun was keen because the franchise provides a unique perspective on how Indians are looked at internationally and vice versa. But he wanted to make sure that Akshay had no problems with the franchise moving forward without him, before signing on the dotted line. Last month, Akshay and Vipul who have been close friends and have collaborated on a dozen films over the last two decades, mutually agreed to go ahead with Arjun. The film will roll early 2018 and like the original will be shot in Punjab and the UK.”
It is clear that Arjun Kapoor loved the script, and he aims to feature in the film. Talking about the plot of the movie, the source added:
“The second film too has been scripted in a manner to appeal to expats and has a Punjabi and Brit flavor.”
Katrina Kaif, as stated, is not going to be a part of the sequel. The source revealed additional details regarding the new female lead. It stated:
“She’s an ambitious Punjabi, who is fascinated by the glitz and glamor and wants to move to the UK while Arjun’s character, a mischievous desi Romeo, is rooted in his land and culture like the original Arjun Singh. His character will be quite quirky this time around.”
The cast of the film is not finalized yet. The release date is unknown as well. Stay tuned for the announcements regarding the sequel.
