‘Namaste England’ will clash with Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet Singh starrer untitled film on this year’s Dusshera, when asked Shah how important it is to get good release date for the film, he said, “Nowadays, to release a film on good date plays important factor in the success of the film so, we are very happy that we have got Dusshera release. ‘Namaste England’ is really light-hearted, fun and simple love story with good music. We also tried to showcase an important issue through this film but we will discuss that later so, we are trying to spread more happiness during this year’s Dusshera”
Sharing his experience working with Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in the film, Shah said, “If you have a good team then shooting the film becomes simple and fun. As a director, we have a certain responsibility that you don’t break the trust of your actors and try to make a film which will make them proud after watching it so we did a lot of fun while shooting of the film without any kind of pressure. We also did a lot of hard work as well. We used to wake up at 3 am in the morning to start shooting of the film and we used to shoot at 3-4 locations each day but both of them never cribbed about it even for one day and because that also we were able to finish the shoot of the film so early. We have preponed the release date of this film. It was earlier scheduled to release on 7th December but now it will release on 19th October so now again, we are working hard to give a good release for this film”
Sharing her experience of working with Arjun Kapoor and Vipul Amrutlal Shah in ‘Namaste England’, Parineeti said, “It was really good experience working with Arjun in ‘Namaste England’ because while we were shooting for ‘Ishaqzaade’ that time, we were becoming friends and during that time, Arjun used to show a lot of attitude to me and he does that even now but I am used to it. I had so much fun while working on this film and I don’t think I had so much fun while working in my earlier films. Arjun is my friend and Vipul sir also become my friend now. To do ‘Namaste England’ after ‘Namastey London’ which is also directed by Vipul sir is a very special thing for me because he knows that space, England, and Punjab really well. The film is releasing on 19th October so, I just hope audience also like our film”
Sharing details of her upcoming film ‘Kesari’ based on ‘Battle of Saragarhi’ which also stars Akshay Kumar, Parineeti said, “I don’t have to do much of effort to play my character in ‘Kesari’ because ‘Kesari’ about those boys and I am not part of Battle of Saragarhi so, for that film, I am just going with director’s and Karan Johar’s vision. I have finished two days of shoot for that film but we will resume shooting of that film on October-November.”
