The audience loved Katrina Kaif as British brat and Akshay Kumar as Funjabi boy in 2010 NAMASTEY LONDON and really we all fell in love with Akshay and Katrina’s endearing, heart-felt love story.
AKSHAY KUMAR and ARJUN KAPOOR
Now ten years later a sequel of this film is being planned but unfortunately Akshay Kumar and Katrina won’t be reprising their roles in the new installment which is titled NAMASTEY ENGLAND.
Arjun Kapoor has been roped in to step into Akshay’s shoes in the sequel. And according to a report in Mumbai Mirror Akshay Kumar is happy that Arjun Kapoor will be taking the franchise forward.
A source close to the film was quoted saying in the report as, “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 about 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.”
Well we don’t know whether Arjun will be able to do justice to this role or not but one thing is for sure that we will miss Akki and Kat badly.
