Since many days director Vipul Shah has been wanting to make a sequel to his mega hit movie Namastey London which released in 2007. But several problems have stopped him in doing so until Akshay Kumar started happily collaborating for the movie with Vipul again.
Akshay Kumar has reportedly signed for the movie as a gift to Vipul on his birthday. The two celebrities are also good friends and Vipul has confirmed the news saying, “We had been planning the film from a long time. We had been waiting for the right script. A couple of days back I read the script to Akshay and he loved it. In fact, he said he would sign the film on my birthday. What started as a joke is now true.”
The duo have done six films together till now which include movies like Aankhen (2002) and Singh Is Kinng (2008). Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif’s pairing has always been a hit and there are no questions about that. The pair also shined in Welcome (2007). But the makers haven’t decided the female lead of the sequel as of yet.
The actor is presently busy with his upcoming flick which is a remake of a South hit Thuppakki. Akshay is expected to start with Namastey London 2 after he’s finished with his present commitments.
Earlier there were reports coming in that suggested that Akshay wanted the Singh Is Kinng to be done first but now it seems Namastey London 2 will be coming sooner than expected.
