Mumbai, Aug 18 (IANS) Filmmaker Anees Bazmee says it is only because of megastar Amitabh Bachchan that he is making “Aankhen 2”
“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 at the announcement of the sequel.
“Aankhen 2” is a sequel to the 2002 heist thriller drama film “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 cine icon is full filled 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”.
