Arjun Kapoor is all set to replace Akshay Kumar in the next film of Namastey franchise. He will be joined by Parineeti Chopra in the film which is titled as Namastey Canada. The film will go on floors soon and will hit the screens in 2018.
An ecstatic Arjun said, "I'm excited to be a part of this project. After working with giants like Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar, he has chosen me. Namastey Canada has heart and humour, making it a family entertainer."
On the other hand, Parineeti said, "This is exactly the film I was looking for! It's a desi story with a videshi heart. I'm excited to be directed by Vipul sir with who I have shared an amazing friendship over the last few years."
There were reports suggesting that Arjun was replacing Akshay Kumar in this movie. To this, Vipul clarified, "I want to set the record straight. Namastey Canada is not a sequel to Namastey London. I thank Akshay for standing by me and being graceful about sharing the title with me."
On his association with Arjun and Parineeti, Vipul stated, "I'm also happy that Arjun and Parineeti agreed to join me on this journey. I hope this film becomes one of their best outings together."
The Ishaqzaade due will also be seen in Yash Raj Films' Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar which was announced recently.
