The latest trend in Bollywood seem to be sequel films. Although producer-director, Vipul Shah has not been too fond of them, we can be expecting a sequel to his 2007 film, Namastey London, which starred Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif.
In fact, we hear that it was Akshay who persuaded Vipul to go ahead with the film, who is currently working on the script. Namastey London was about a Punjabi boy (Akshay) who tried winning over his upper class London bride (Katrina). The sequel will see the original characters going through matrimonial ups and downs which will provide drama and humour in the storyline.
“Doing sequels are not my cup of tea, but they seem to be a trend now. More than me, Akshay was keen to do a sequel to Namastey London. He felt the story had the potential to be carried forward. I couldn’t disagree with him beyond a point.”
Apparently Katrina has also tried to persuade Vipul to plan a sequel of the film and will be taken by surprise when she learns that it will actually be materialized soon. Says Vipul, “Would you believe it, I still haven’t told her about the sequel to Namastey London? She has been urging me to do the sequel for the longest time. When she hears that we’ve been secretly working on the script for the past three months, she will come down to my house and kill me.”
Once Vipul is done working on his John Abraham-starrer, Force, he will begin work on Namastey London 2 which will be shot in London.
