The hunt for the lead actress of ‘Namaste England’ has just got more interesting. After Kangana and Sonakshi, we now hear that the makers have apparently approached Anushka Sharma as well to play the lead opposite Akshay Kumar in the movie .
Says a source, “The producers are in talks with Anushka Sharma. Akshay and Anushka haven’t worked together since ‘Patiala House’ (2011) and the makers feel that unlike Sonakshi who has done almost six films with Akshay, Anushka’s pairing with the superstar will be far more fresh. Though Anushka has not yet been given a narration, they have definitely started talks with her. She is yet to confirm though.”
Namaste England will be directed by Vipul Shah who had earlier helmed the 2007 hit, ‘Namaste London’. Interestingly, ‘Namaste England’ is not a sequel to Namaste London and is a stand alone movie.
Director Vipul Shah couldn’t be reached for a comment.
