Vipul Shah has made a number of successful films starring Akshay Kumar over the years. The duo will be working together once again on two upcoming projects: ‘Namastey England’ and ‘Holiday 2’.

About ‘Namastey England’, Shah told DNA India, “It is a fresh script and we start shooting in August. It will release next year.”

Contrary to rumours, the film is not a sequel to the 2007 hit ‘Namastey London’. ‘Holiday 2’, however, is a sequel to ‘Holiday’ (2014).

Confirming the ‘Holiday’ sequel, the producer stated, “We would have made this regardless of box-office numbers. There are some films you know can be turned into a franchise while there are some which should be allowed to just be. Holiday definitely has the potential to become one. Hence, we are planning Holiday 2 now…He (AkshayKumar)will be on another tour of duty this time. We discussed the sequel even before we released Holiday and he was very happy with the idea.”

Shah also added that they would be approaching the original director of ‘Holiday’, A R Murugadoss, to direct the sequel.
