Arjun Kapoor has been roped in to play the lead in the sequel to Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Namastey London’. The sequel will feature Arjun as a desi Romeo, while his leading lady will be an ambitious Punjabi girl. This love story is yet untitled. This film too will be shot in UK and Punjab just like its prequel. Vipul Amrutlal Shah had announced the sequel back in 2015, but the quirky love story will finally go on the floors in early 2018. Akshay Kumar was to play the lead in ‘Namastey London’ sequel initially, but with his hands full with half a dozen projects, the Bollywood actor seems to have decided to opt out of the film. Akshay will soon start shooting for Reema Kagti’s sports film ‘Gold’ in London. Arjun Kapoor, in the meantime, is looking forward to the release of ‘Mubarakan’.
