In 2007, Akshay Kumar went all the way to London to bring back his runaway bride Katrina Kaif. Now, more than a decade later, it is the turn of Arjun Kapoor to pursue his headstrong bride Parineeti Chopra in Namaste England. As the Namaste England trailer landed on Thursday, Arjun was seen as the quintessential ‘munda’, happy with Punjab, love and wife Parineeti.

His bride, however, has bigger dreams. Parineeti wants to go all the way to the UK to find success. An obstinate ‘daarji’ (grandfather) stands in her way. She goes through all the steps every Indian girl is expected to go through – get married and be a dutiful wife without losing hold of her dreams.


And then, a lot like Alia Bhatt in Badrinath Ki Dulhania, she leaves Arjun behind and runs away to London. Now, our hero follows her there via the illegal route as we see him traipsing across Europe to reach the British capital. Despite its hard luck story, Namaste London never loses sight of its mainstays – comedy and romance. We get a ‘Punjab ki mitti’ joke and dreamy numbers.

Arjun shared the trailer and wrote, “How far can you go for love? Presenting the #NamasteEnglandTrailer.”

Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s Namaste England has begins from Punjab and moving to Ludhiana, Amritsar, Dhaka and all the way to Paris followed by Brussels and finally to London, the film will surely be a fun quintessential Bollywood. The Arjun Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra film releases on October 19.
