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.”
