This is when Amitabh Bachchan will start shooting for Aankhen 2

A lot has been said and written about Aankhen 2 over the past few years. A sequel to the 2002 superhit film Aankhen, the project was supposed to start production in 2017 after a grand launch in 2016.

However, as ill luck would have it, the sequel landed in legal trouble and was subsequently shelved. But the latest we hear that filmmaker Anees Bazmee has revived it after joining hands with producer Tarun Agarwal and Eros International.

According to reports, Amitabh Bachchan, who played the male lead in Aankhen, is set to topline the cast of the sequel. The superstar is expected to start shooting for it in 2019. Not just senior Bachchan, if things fall into place, international movie star Jackie Chan will also be seen in Aankhen 2.

“Amit Ji liked the script and has given his nod to the project. Anees (Bazmee) has begun prep and will start shooting in 2019. The team is targeting an early 2020 release. And since the story revolves around a casino this time owned by a Chinese, the makers are considering Jackie Chan for the part.”

Reportedly, Sushant Singh Rajput and Vicky Kaushal are also expected to play important roles in the movie.

An official confirmation is awaited though.
