Akshay Kumar Signed for Namsatey London 2, Katrina Kaif Didn't Make It

Vipul Shah and Akshay Kumar will be teaming up again for a sequel to their 2007 box-office hit being produced by Reliance Entertainment.

While Akshay was finalized for the film after multiple meetings between the star and the Reliance team, the leading lady is yet to be finalized. The original film featured Akshay and Katrina Kaif in lead roles.

The sequel was first contemplated in March 2011 when Vipul reportedly said that Akshay saw a potential in taking forward the Namastey London story of Punjabi boy Arjun and British-Asian girl Jazz. At that time Akshay was keen to have Katrina on board. In December there were reports that Katrina hasn't yet given a nod because her dates were booked with YRF for films opposite Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan.

Back in January, Shah said, "I would like to announce the project only when it's ready with directors and actors. It will take another two weeks to lock the project."

Vipul and Akshay last worked together in Action Replay (2010) which featured Aishwarya Rai as female lead. The film was a box-office dud.
