With Parineeti Chopra looking favourite to bag the female lead opposite Arjun Kapoor in the ‘Namastey London’ sequel, Jacqueline Fernandez has reportedly refused to play the second female lead in the film.
The film, which was earlier titled ‘Namastey England’ has now been rechristened ‘Namastey Canada’, with the film focusing on the action in Canada.
A source told Mid-Day, “Jacqueline is doing some big films with top stars, including A Gentleman with Sidharth Malhotra, Judwaa 2 with Varun Dhawan, Drive with Sushant Singh Rajput and director Remo D’Souza’s untitled next with Salman Khan. She didn’t want to play a role subordinate to Parineeti. Jackie’s market price is also more than Pari’s. Why would she do Namastey Canada?”
Filmmaker Vipul Shah denied the reports saying he hasn’t approached anyone for the film yet. He said, “I don’t know where you have heard this from. I have not met anybody for the role.”
