Filmmaker Vipul Shah’s ‘Namaste Canada’ which headlines Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in lead roles, is reportedly having trouble finding the second heroine. The film has two female characters who play love the interest of the leading man but the makers aren’t finding a suitable actress to play the small role.

Pooja Hegde

If the reports are to be believed, actresses like Jacqueline Fernandez, Kiara Advani and Disha Patani were approached for this role but they all turned it down. Kriti Sanon and Amy Jackson were also offered this but they refused it as well. All these actresses have reportedly turned down this offer due to the length of the role and also because none of them wants to play second fiddle to Parineeti.

But now, if SpotBoye is to be believed, Pooja Hegde who marked her debut with Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Mohenjo Daro’ last year, might come on board to play the cameo role in ‘Namaste Canada’. The website reported that Vipul is keen on having Pooja on board and has already talked with the actress. However, Pooja hasn’t taken her final decision yet and is still mulling over it.

‘Namaste Canada’ was earlier supposed to be made with Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha but it didn’t work out due to the busy schedule of the actors. Since Vipul didn’t want more delay to commence the project, he then went with Arjun and Parineeti for the film which is said to be a sequel to Akshay and Katrina Kaif starrer hit movie, ‘Namaste London’.
