In uniform curved motion , I can get the acceleration from the equation :
A = v2/r , but in non uniform the velocity is changing , so will the certipetal acceleration also change ?

Google the Frenet equations. Those equations treat the more general case.

It's far from my question. I meant will the centripetal acceleration increase?

If the object stays on the same circle of radius ## r ##, the answer is yes.
