Filmmaker Anees Bazmee says he makes Aankhen 2 only because of actor Amitabh Bachchan as he has never worked with the Bollywood superstar .
“I think it is a tough job to make a good film… The reason behind making the film is Mr. Bachchan. I have worked with almost all actors but I still considered myself unlucky that I didn’t get a chance to work with Amitji.” Bazmee said announcing the sequel.
Aankhen 2 is a sequel to the 2002 heist thriller Aankhen which was directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah and featured Big B, Akshay Kumar, Sushmita Sen and Arjun Rampal.
“’Aankhen’ was really a good film as it had a tremendous concept. So when Gaurang Doshi came to me with the film I immediately agreed,” he added.
Bazmee shared that his dream to work with the 73-year-old icon is fulfilled now. “This time my attempt is to make a bigger and better sequel.” added the Welcome helmer. Asked about the genre of the film, he said: Aankhen 2 will be a thriller, but with a good amount of humour.” Actors Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Ileana D’Cruz have joined Arjun Rampal and Amitabh in Aankhen 2.
Aankhen 2 is not inspired by Ocean’s Eleven, Bazmee said. – CINEWS
