Actor Akshay Kumar is, reportedly, not entirely happy with the new trailer of Namaste England.

The trailer for the movie, starring Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor, was released recently and has received rave reviews from fellow Bollywood celebrities on Twitter. But turns out, Akshay Kumar is not one of them.

Akshay Kumar Wants Patriotism and He Wants It Now

At a press conference to launch a patriotic remix of his hit song ‘Tip Tip Barsa Pani’, Akshay Kumar was asked about Namaste England. After expressing his confusion about the fact that it’s not a sequel to his movie Namaste London, co-starring Rishi Kapoor, he said he hasn’t seen the trailer yet. His team, helpfully, played the trailer for him after which he became visibly upset.

“I respect Vipul ji (the director of both Namaste England and Namastey London) but this is not right,” he said.

When asked to explain what got him so riled up, he said, “I’ve seen the trailer twice now and there seems to be no scope for a nationalistic speech about how India is so much better than England.”

His team tried to explain to him that it was not that kind of a movie but Akshay wouldn’t have it. “Patriotism finds a way,” he said.

According to him, their should have been a patriotic speech like the one he gave in, what he is refusing to believe is not a prequel to this movie, Namastey London. “I showed those Brits how amazing India was,” he said, “It wasn’t even in the script. I improvised it.”

While it may seem rash to make any such observation about a film based on just a trailer, Akshay Kumar might be right. “I hope the makers of the movie realise their mistake,” he said.

Arjun Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra, and Sushmita Sen were unavailable for a comment.
