Kangana to romance Akshay in ‘Namastey England’

According to the latest grapevine, the ‘Queen’ of Bollywood Kangana Ranaut has been approached for Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Namastey England’, a sequel to the blockbuster ‘Namastey London’. Eight years back, filmmaker Vipul Shah announced the sequel to the Akshay, Katrina starrer ‘Namastey London’ and now the film is taking shape.

However, it is also buzz that the film is not a sequel to ‘Namastey London’.

"The makers are keen on having her on board. It’s a double role and everyone has seen the ease with which she pulled off the double role in her last release Tanu Weds Manu Returns” says a source.

Producer-director Shah told PTI, "I am very excited to direct this film. Akshay and I have had the best run in the past, and I hope to continue that with this one."

However, Shah has cleared the fact that there is not relation between Namastey London’ and ‘Namsatey England’ . "I have been reading reports about this being a sequel to Namastey London… I would like to make it absolutely clear that Namaste England is not a sequel to Namastey London. In fact, this has got nothing to do with Namastey London. I hope this puts all speculations to rest. My producers have shown faith in my vision, and I want to do justice to that," he said.

Since Akshay Kumar has few films lined up for release, the shooting of ‘Namastey England’ will go on floor in 2016 and release end of the year.

Akshay is looking forward to the release of Dharma Productions ‘Brothers’ along with Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez. Next lined up for filming is Prabhu Dheva's ‘Singh is Bliing’.

Essel Vision Productions and Kriaj Entertainment will jointly produce ‘Namastey England’.
