There is some really exciting news for Akkians. Actor Akshay Kumar and director Vipul Shah have reportedly joined hands for a sequel to their popular film Namastey London.
The sequel is titled as Namastey England and it will go on the floors in the second half of this year. Akshay Kumar will begin shooting for the film as soon as he finishes Airlift.
“While the film will go on the floors later this year, the details are being kept hush hush. Vipul and Akshay are very excited about Namastey England and the fact that they will be working together once again,” said a source.
Namastey London was a romantic drama which came out in 2007, also featuring actors Katrina Kaif, Rishi Kapoor. Although Namastey England is a sequel, the story will not be a continuation and will have a new plot.
However, the leading lady has not yet been finalised but the film will be shot in London, Punjab, Mumbai and parts of Europe.
Vipul’s last directorial was Action Replay which released in 2010 featuring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan opposite Akshay.
