The movie has a title similar to that of ‘Namastey London’ (2007) which featured Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif playing the lead roles and sparked rumours that this one would be a remake of the 2007 romantic comedy. However, filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah, who has directed the earlier one as well has said that this upcoming project is not a sequel of the former one.
