After Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham, we hear that the makers of the forthcoming Hindi film Pagalpanti have now approached Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt to play important roles in it. The movie will be helmed by Anees Bazmee who is known for many successful comic-capers.

“It’s a question of dates and the actors’ availability. Ajay was supposed to do the role that John has stepped into. He and Anees have done several films together, including Hulchul (1995) and Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha (1998). But he had to back out because of date problems. Now, it remains to be seen if this film fits into Anil’s calendar or Sanju’s,” a trade source reveals.

Bazmee is also in news for working on the second instalment of the hit heist thriller Aankhen (2002). Buzz has it that Amitabh Bachchan, Sushant Singh Rajput and Vicky Kaushal are part of Aankhen 2 which is expected to roll in mid-2019.

Just like Aankhen 2, an official announcement on Pagalpanti and its cast is also awaited.
