Aankhen 2 Finally Brings Bazmi and Bachchan Together

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 an 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 byBachchan Saab.”

It was then that Rajtaru Studios raised 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 Aankhensequel. 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 won’t to make sure Aankhen 2 justifies  his presence.”
