Sonakshi’s England affair
Sonakshi Sinha is on a signing spree. After giving the nod to Abhay Chopra’s remake of 1969 murder mystery, Ittefaq, opposite Sidharth Malhotra, the Dabangg actress has now come on board Vipul Shah’s Namastey England, opposite Akshay Kumar. The shooting for the film will start in August. “Sonakshi will feature in a never-seenbefore avatar. We are currently in the pre-production stage. Let me make it clear that our film is not a sequel or a continuation of Namastey London (the 2007 romcom featuring Akki and Katrina Kaif ),” says Vipul as reported in a leading tabloid. This will be Sonakshi’s fifth film as the lead with the Khiladi Kumar after Prabhu Deva’s Rowdy Rathore, Shirish Kunder’s Joker, Milan Luthria’s Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara !, and AR Murugadoss’s Holiday. She has also done special appearances in OMG! Oh My God and Boss.
