After a long legal battle over copyright infringement, the makers of the much-awaited Aankhen sequel are set to revive the project. Recently, there were rumours that Sushant Singh Rajput and Kartik Aaryan were approached to star alongside megastar Amitabh Bachchan in Aankhen 2.
However, if latest reports are to be believed another set of actors are in talks with the makers to join Senior Bachchan in the crime caper. Reportedly, Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are in consideration to join forces with the megastar.
But when Anees Bazmee, who has been entrusted with the responsibility of helming the movie, was contacted for a confirmation, he had something else to say.
“Rajtaru (Studios) has the rights to the film so, yes, talks are on for a sequel. Amitji is there in the film but we haven’t spoken to anyone else right now. In the next one to two months, we will be able to figure out more about the film. As of now, I think Rajtaru is in a better position to talk about this,” he said.
The original cast of Aankhen had Amitabh Bachchan alongside Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Paresh Rawal and Sushmita Sen. It was one of the most successful films of the year 2002.
