Namastey England is some sort of a sequel to 2007 hit Namastey ondon which starred Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in leading roles. Since London is actually in England, title of the film is a little confusing by nature but there must be some logic to it. Arjun and Parineeti practically started their career together as a lead romantic pair in Yash Raj Films Ishaaqzaade and since than they have completed the shooting of their next film together by the name of Sandeep aur Pinky Farar.
None of them were in the first part of that film which says that it can’t be a direct sequel to the earlier one as how are they going to continue the story with different faces but it will be more like a spiritual sequel which has the same name to give the film more value. Arjun and Pairineeti recently worked on Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep aur Pinky Farar which will release later this year as the post production is going on now. Both of them have bumpy careers as of now and have mostly been part of partially successful films that are liked enough for both of them to get more work.
Namastey England is directed by Vipul Amritlal Shah who is also the producer of the film. Plot details regarding the film is not revealed by the makers yet but it might have a lot of similarities to the first one. Akshay was allegedly approached for the sequel but he said no to it for reasons unknown which is when makers signed Arjun for this one. Namastey London is more or less a cult as far as Hindi cinema romantic dramas go and to touch that film again is certainly a risky proposition but they are doing it anyways. Namastey England might release later this year or sometime next year.
