The leading duo have wrapped up the Punjab shooting schedule of the film. Expressing his excitement over the same, Arjun had earlier told the daily, “Yes, all these years I have wanted to stay and discover Punjab. Being a Punjabi myself I have always wanted to get a deeper sense of the culture, the food and especially the people. I can’t wait to travel in and around Punjab and shoot. It will be one of the most memorable experiences of my life.” Along with Namaste England, Arjun and Parineeti will also be seen in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, which will hit the screens on August 3rd, 2018.
