And Parineeti’s name too was being attached to the project. We can now tell you that Arjun will indeed be romancing his Ishaqzaade co-star in the film.

Parineeti was a part of the film from the very beginning, even before Arjun’s name came into contention. Though reports claimed that Sonakshi Sinha is the leading lady of Namastey England, it is Parineeti Chopra.

The newly svelte actress is a good fit for the film, if her character is anything like the glamorous and witty one portrayed by Katrina in the original.

And we all know that Parineeti has great chemistry with Arjun.

Namastey London, which also starred Rishi Kapoor, Javed Sheikh, Upen Patel and Clive Standen in supporting roles, was originally based on the true life story of Akshay Kumar's friend.

The story of a British brat who falls for a ‘Funjabi’ boy was a box-office success.

Let’s wait and watch how the sequel fares!
