Arjun Kapoor is all set to replace Akshay Kumar in Namastey London sequel, said a source quoting from newspaper Mumbai Mirror.

Namastey London starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead role was released in 2007 and was a smash hit then.

Since then fans have been anxiously waiting for a sequel and now the movie might roll early in 2018, however, this time it will star Arjun Kapoor instead of Akshay Kumar, according to a leading daily.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the source informed, “Arjun was keen because the franchise provides a unique perspective on how Indians are looked at internationally and vice versa. But he wanted to make sure that Akshay had no problems about the franchise moving forward without him, before signing on the dotted line. Last month, Akshay and Vipul who have been close friends and have collaborated on a dozen films over the last two decades, mutually agreed to go ahead with Arjun. The film will roll early 2018 and like the original, will be shot in Punjab and the UK.”
