Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif have worked together in multiple movies, but latest reports suggest that the actor is not willing to share screen space with her in the Namastey London sequel.

Namastey London, which featured Akshay and Katrina, was a hit, and the makers are now planning to make its sequel titled – Namastey England. However, the superstar now wants to replace Katrina with a new actress in the sequel.

Akshay has suggested the makers of Namastey England to cast a new heroine for the sequel, according to Catch News. What is even more interesting is that the report further added that the Rustom actor has put forward Parineeti Chopra's name as the heroine for Namastey England.

While Parineeti happens to be Priyanka Chopra's sister, the latter was rumoured to be in a relationship with Akshay, which eventually ended on a not-so-positive note. In fact, post their rumoured split, the two never shared screen space again. There were even reports that Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna had strictly told him not to work with PeeCee again.

However, now this report claiming Akshay's wish to work with Parineeti rather than Katrina suggests a different picture. Akshay and the Bang Bang actress had earlier worked in movies like Namastey London, Singh Is Kingg, Tees Maar Khan, Welcome, Humko Deewana Kargaye and some others.
