After bringing the house down at cousin Mohit Marawah – Antara Motiwala’s wedding at Al Ras Khaimah in the UAE, Arjun Kapoor is back to work. The actor recently wrapped up Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar with Parineeti Chopra, and the two are all set to start work on their next film Namastey England. The crew is in Amritsar where they have begun shooting for the film directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah. However, before rolling the film, the actors and their director visited the Golden Temple to seek blessings.
It was Arjun’s idea to pray at the Golden Temple before the shoot started. This was the first time ever that Arjun got the opportunity to visit the holy temple and he took his co-star Parineeti and film-maker Vipul Shah along with him for the visit. “Arjun woke up and went straight to the Golden Temple so that he could seek blessings. It was an impromptu plan by him. He just woke up and said that he would like to pray at the Temple before he starts shooting the film. He spent about 30 mins praying alone and then went straight to the shoot and reached before time for shoot! Parineeti and Vipul were also with him at the Golden Temple. It was a really auspicious way to start the film,” says a source from the sets of the film.
Apart from Amritsar, Namastey England will also be shot in places like Ludhiana and Patiala in Punjab and later international locations like Dhaka, Paris, Brussels and London. Arjun and Parineeti are said to be playing Punjabi characters and they will meet and love will blossom in Punjab and their love story and film’s journey will progress as they finally reach London.
Arjun and Parineeti debuted together in Ishaqzaade and have shared a great bond ever since. The two are friends and share a great camaraderie off screen as well. So having them come together for a love story will be a delight for fans. Namastey England marks their third collaboration, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar being their second.
