Filmmaker Vipul Shah has confirmed that he has been working with his two writers on the sequel of ‘Namastey London’ (2007), which will star Akshay Kumar in the lead.

Talking to Times Of India, Kumar said, “After a thriller (Aankhen, 2002) and a family drama (Waqt : The Race Against Time, 2005), Namastey London was my first love story. In India, the biggest test for any director is to make a successful love story. And I passed that test.”

Shah said he had been in regular contact with writers Suresh Nair and Ritesh Shah for the past two years working on the script of the sequel. The film will not be a continuation of the original but a new lover triangle with Kumar, plus two ladies.

“The philosophy of the film and most of the locations will be the same. We will be shooting in London, Punjab and Mumbai. The new additions are Germany and Switzerland. The sequel will be done on a more opulent scale as we don’t want to lose our audience. It has been challenging for us to reinvent ourselves. Both Akshay and I are really excited about it,” he adds.
