Amitabh Bachchan All Set to Do Sequel of ‘Aankhen’. Here Are the Details

Remember the 2002 heist film where Big B plays a banker who tries to rob a bank with the help of three blind men?

Finally, Aankhen 2 is happening. The sequel to the popular heist thriller released in 2002 has been on the anvil. But was struck in a legal dispute which has finally been resolved. Says director Anees Bazmi,  “As you know, Aankhen 2 was to be produced by Gaurang Doshi who had produced the original Aankhen film in  2002.  I knew Rajtaru Studios (co-partners Raj Rajtaru and  Tarun Aggarwal) were a  co-producers.  I kept asking Gaurang to get a NOC from Rajtaru. He insisted I shouldn’t worry. ‘If I am investing money surely I’ve got the basic rights in place,’ Gaurang told me. I  went ahead with his conviction. We even had a mahurat ceremony attended by Bachchan Saab.”


It was then that Rajtaru Studios raised an objection to Doshi producing Aankhen 2. Says Anees, “Sadly Gaurang is no longer a part of Aankhen 2. It is being co-produced jointly by Rajtaru and Eros International.”
Anees intends to plunge into the project in the second-half of 2019. “I ’ve cracked a really interesting idea for the Aankhen sequel. This is the first time that  I’m working with Bachchan Saab. Like millions of Indians, I am his fan. And like every filmmaker in the country I too wanted to work with him. This is my chance. I want to make sure Aankhen 2 justifies  his presence.”
