Mumbai: Aankhen was based on the Gujarati play which featured Amitabh Bachchan, Arjun Rampal, Akshay Kumar,Sushamita Sen,Paresh Rawal and others. The 2002 release got good reviews and did well at box office.
A few years ago, producer Gaurang Doshi announced the film with Amitabh Bachchan once again, but after the announcement was made some of the actors claimed that they are not associated with the project. Another producer too dragged Gaurang in court and now he is said to be out of the project.
A source says, “Anees Bazmee is going to direct this film and Amitabh Bachchan has agreed to do it. Once he finishes Jhund and Badla, he will begin work on this film. The sequel will have some additional characters and rest of the cast is yet to be finalised. The makers are soon going to make official announcement of the film and the cast.”
Earlier, actor’s like Ileana D’Cruz and Arshad Warsi were supposed to be part of the film but when they stated that they were not part of it, the makers got upset. Later, it was said that Kartik Aryan and Sushant Singh Rajput are also going to be part of this film but there is no confirmation on it yet.
