After the success of Namastey London in 2007, filmmaker Vipul Shah planned another film Namastey England. It’s said that the story is completely different from the first film, Akshay Kumar was again the choice to play the protagonist. Sources say that it’s a brilliant script but the story demands a lot of preparation and the film demands a good budget as well. Since its taking time, Vipul put the film on hold and is arranging the finances.
But the project was running into financial trouble. The situation put this film on hold. Vipul was casting Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha in the sequel as this pair sizzled in the film Rowdy Rathore. This couple was loved by the fans. Earlier, it was rumored that Kareena Kapoor or Kangana Ranaut will be the female lead for Namastey England. But Sonakshi was taken, however.
In 2016, after seeing so much trouble in the project, Akshay and Sonakshi chose not to waste their time thinking over and move on to other projects. Big stars, Big time, Big worth. Due to the delay, Akshay Kumar was preferring other films over Namastey England. So, Akki moved to his other project like Jolly LLB 2, and Sonakshi completed her shoots for Force 2 and Noor consecutively.
The film still has not come on board, but there is a new rumor or say information about the project. It is being said that Akshay is keen for Parineeti Chopra, so Parineeti might take on the project and become Akki’s next heroine, for Namastey England. However, Parineeti has not confirmed this yet. According to her, she will be revealing about her second film some other time. She is currently doing Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal 4.
