Second Fiddle To Parineeti? No Way Say Jacqueline, Disha & Kiara

Parineeti Chopra-Arjun Kapoor starrer Namastey Canada is going on floors early next year. Everything is in place, apart from one little (but crucial) detail. Director Vipul Shah is yet to finalise a spunky and glamourous actress who will play second fiddle to Pari in the movie...

Namastey Canada director Vipul Shah’s woes don’t seem to end. First it was the title of the film... he wanted to name his movie Namastey England, but Akshay Kumar refused to part with the title. Now it’s the second female lead, which he can’t seem to cast.

After Jacqueline refused him, Vipul has been quite shell-shocked. Even Disha Patani and Kiara Advani have not been interested to play second fiddle to the Ishqzaade actress, Parineeti Chopra.

He has been relentlessly tempting them to sign on the dotted line. We have learnt that Vipul has been enticing them with different titles – cameo/special appearance - and a glowing mention in the credit rolls, however, neither of the three girls are interested.

Meanwhile, feelers were sent to Kriti Sanon and Amy Jackson, but they didn’t come running either.

None of them wish to bite the bait. Last heard, Vipul was tearing his hair out!

For those who have come in late, if things had gone as per plan, then Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha would have helmed the cast of the movie. However, since it took some time to take off, Akshay got busy with other projects – namely KriArj Entertainment’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha & Padman, 2.0 and Gold. This is when Vipul cast Parineeti and Arjun. Akshay and Vipul co-own the Intellectual Property right to title and the actor refused to part with it.
