Mumbai: Vipul Shah directed film ‘Namaste London’ will have a sequel soon. The film was released in year 2007.
The latest buzz revealed that Arjun Kapoor will play lead role in the upcoming film. This time the film will not include Akshay Kumar in the pivotal roles.
As per the reports, Parineeti Chopra is slated to essay female lead role in the upcoming film. The film will have a title ‘Namastey Canada’.
Akshay and Vipul purportedly possess the rights to the title of the movie.
“The project took some time to get finalised and Akshay got busy with other projects, including Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Padman, 2.0 and Gold. So, Vipul signed Parineeti and Arjun for the film. Both, Akshay and Vipul own the Intellectual Property (IP) rights to the Namastey series, and when the filmmaker approached him for the rights, the actor refused to part with the titles Namastey London 2 or Namastey England. He told Vipul that he may want to produce and act in Namastey England later. So, the filmmaker had no choice but to change the title to Namastey Canada,” the reports said.
