After Namastey England changed its name to Namastey Canada today, there are reports that there was a second female lead signed on for the film. Model Aisha Buzz was signed for that role when Sonakshi Sinha and Akshay Kumar were to do Namastey England. However, along with the film’s name, the cast has also undergone a change since and Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra are being cast for Namastey Canada. As per reports, Jacqueline Fernandez was recently approached for Aisha Buzz’s role. But Jacqueline turned down this offer as she didn’t want to play a sidekick to Parineeti Chopra.
A source says, “Jacqueline is doing some big films with top stars, including A Gentleman with Sidharth Malhotra, Judwaa 2 with Varun Dhawan, Drive with Sushant Singh Rajput and director Remo D’Souza’s untitled next with Salman Khan. She didn’t want to play a role subordinate to Parineeti. Jackie’s market price is also more than Pari’s. Why would she do Namastey Canada?” Filmmaker Vipul Shah says he hasn’t approached Fernandez yet. “I don’t know where you have heard this from. I have not met anybody for the role,” says Vipul Shah.
Jacqueline has currently signed Remo D’Souza’s next with Salman Khan. She will also be seen in A Gentleman opposite Sidharth Malhotra.
