Ten years after the release of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Namastey London’, actor Arjun Kapoor will be filling the shoes of the actor in the sequel 'Namastey England.'

Akshay Kumar, who is already busy with three films, has not only given his nod to his replacement, but has expressed eagerness to see the young actor in his place.

The director of film, Vipul Amrutalal, who is also a very good friend of Akshay Kumar, zeroed in on the replacement in consultation with Akshay Kumar, a source told.
