With his career as a leading man in the doldrums, Himesh Reshammiya has now eaten humble-pie and bowed his head in a obedient Namaste to Akshay Kumar.

Composing music for the sequel won’t be as easy for Himesh Reshammiya as it was for Namaste London four years ago. This time Akshay Kumar would be monitoring every melodic move that Reshammiya makes, down to the last dying note. Akshay is also expected to contribute vocals to Himesh’s songs. This maneuver takes the shine away from Himesh’s earlier stance that he would compose and sing as per his own creative diktats.

Akshay is no longer the sleeper-producer of the films he stars in. According to information available with Businessofcinema.com, as co-producer of Namaste London 2, Akshay wants to ensure every component of the sequel is in place.

Says a source, “At the moment Akshay’s career is going through a downslide. All the comedies from Khatta Meetha to Thank You have under-performed. Akshay is looking at a serious career makeover. Many consider Namaste London his best film and performance to date. Akshay wants to make sure that the film is as perfect in every detail as possible.”

There’s also the added responsibility of doing a sequel for the first time.
