Ever since the trailer of Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra starrer Namaste England has released, fans are going gaga over it. Arjun and Pari made their Bollywood debut in 2012 with Yash Raj Films, Ishaqzaade and ever since then, the audience wanted to see this on-screen pair yet again. So when Namaste England was announced, fans were more than happy. Now, what if we told you that the film was initially going to star another Bollywood actor and not Arjun? Yes, as per reports in Deccan Chronicles, filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah revealed in an interview that Akshay Kumar was his first choice for the film.

Vipul said,

I was going to do this film with Akshay but unfortunately, his dates were blocked. So he requested me to approach someone else and assured that we’ll reconnect for another film on a later date.

Vipul further revealed that Arjun knew about Akshay being the first choice for the film.

I went to Arjun and with all honesty, I told him that Akshay was my first choice but dates were not working out. Arjun liked the script that’s how he came on board.

While we cannot wait to watch Namaste England, we are wondering how the film would look like if Akshay starred in it.
