Sonakshi to romance Akshay in ‘Namastey England’

The ‘Dabangg’ girl Sonakshi Sinha has been roped in to play Akshay Kumar’s leading lady in the new film ‘Namastey England’.

The 28-year-old actress took to Twitter to confirm the news#”Namaste England… Its official!”.

It is also buzzed that Anushka Sharma and Kangana Ranaut were approached for the female lead but finally Sonakshi Sinha grabbed the meaty role.

‘Namastey England’ to be directed by Vipul Shah is not the sequel of hit 2007 film ‘Namaste London’, which had Katrina Kaif in the female lead.

In ‘Namastey England’, Akshay Kumar will essay the role of a Punjabi guy while Sonakshi Sinha will be seen in altogether different role.

After Rowdy Rathore, Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara and Joker, this is the fifth film Sonakshi and Akshay will be seen together.

Currently, Sonakshi Sinha is busy with 'Akira' and Akshay will be next seen in 'Rustom'.

Hope, their electrifying Jodi again spark magic at the box-office.
