After the success of the cult-classic Namaste London, the team behind the Akshay Kumar film has finally released the trailer to Namaste England starring Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra.
An insight into the lead couple’s love story, the second installment had been a long time coming with a myriad of cast changes, out of which, Parineeti finally was announced as the lead a year ago. Parineeti Chopra also posted an emotional note on Instagram, in which she shared her journey of filming Namaste England. “I don’t think I would have wanted to share this journey with anybody else but Arjun.”
Take a look at her post here:

As I stand at the eve of the trailer launch of arguably my biggest film, I cant help but feel a little emotional. This was a film I had dreamt of doing for a long time, and when I stood on the set in a traditional Indian outfit for the very first time, I felt like I was home. I dont think I would have wanted to share this journey with anybody else but Arjun. He is my most compatible co star, trustworthy mentor and honest friend. I can totally be myself and never have to apologise for it. Non judgemental and caring, Arjun has truly taught me how to handle this complex industry and business. He has the right to scream at me when I mess up, and vice versa. 3am friend? Totally. Everyone knows him for his intelligence and knowledge about this business, his witty humour but for me its his family values and beautiful upbringing that sets him apart as a person. I dont know if we realise it, we are same-same but different ? Thanks baba for being my bouncing board, my partner in crime and my true true true friend. Thankyou for understanding me even when I dont say anything! Thankyou for always listening, whether its my rubbish or my advice!! I hope this friendship continues forever, and also show in the beautiful love story we have made in Namaste England. No this is NOT a plug in for the film, this is an honest thank you note to my teacher, because baba you’ve truly taught me a lot (also because we will never say such nice things in person ?)! Love you! Now please RTGS 75 million my bank account by Monday thanks. @arjunkapoor
In the trailer released, we see that while Arjun seems to be happy with his conventional life in Punjab, Parineeti plays the character of a strong headed and independent woman who moves abroad for her freedom. The hero follows her and is set to go to any length for love, however, gone are the days when Bollywood starred damsels in distress. Now women know what they want and it’s time the world accepts that.
The first half of the trailer perfectly encapsulates the heart of Punjab, while the latter features the couple’s life in England.
Arjun shared the trailer and wrote, “How far can you go for love? Presenting the #NamasteEnglandTrailer.”
