Reports are doing rounds that Arjun Kapoor is set to replace Akshay Kumar in the sequel of Namastey London. The movie’s title will be Namastey England and the story will be new and different.
According to a report in a leading daily, a source told the publication that Arjun is a fan of the original film, and loved the script of its sequel. The source informed,
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.
