Vipul Amrutlal Shah has started working on Namaste’s next franchise – Namaste China

After treating the audience with Akshay Kumar – Katrina Kaif starrer Namaste London, a romantic comedy based in Punjab and London, director and producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah is all set to present Namaste England. The movie is a young and refreshing story that traces the journey of two individuals Param and Jasmeet (played by Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra) across the landscapes of Punjab and London.

While the movie is set to the hit the threates on 19th October, the director has already started on the third installment of the Namaste franchise, focusing the love story now on China. While the director is yet to lock on the lead pair, he’s already done penning down the script and prep in the pre production stage. Confirming the news, Vipul shares, “I have thoroughly enjoyed donning both a director’s and producer’s hat. Namaste England brought me back to the director’s hat after 8 years hiatus. It made me alive and matured as a director. Namaste is one of my favorite franchise and script that I have penned In my career. Subject wise even Namaste England seems like a simple film but it has so many twists and turns that will leave the audiences surprised. Personally, I love scouting for new places and shooting across huge landscapes making it very picturesque. That was the idea behind Namaste China. Just like I have shot across 75 locations for this film, the same is the idea for basing the film in China.”

The franchise has been loved over the years and the trailer of Namaste England has been much appreciated by the audience. Bringing back the amazing chemistry of Arjun and Parineeti back on big screen after Ishqzaade, the director has treated the audience with some iconic films which include Aankhen (2002), Waqt: The Race against Time (2005), Singh is Kinng (2008).
