Producer Gaurang Doshi says actress leana D’Cruz had in principal agreed to do Aankhen 2.
Now the rumour is that the actress has not agreed to do the film but Gaurang states he had not received any calls or messages from Ileana stating her disinterest in doing the film. The clarification from Gaurang on Ileana’s casting comes after her manager said that she is not doing the film.
There were reports that the “Rustom” actress was offered the film but she turned it down and the announcement of her being part of the sequel to the hit 2002 thriller, was made without her permission.
“We had meeting with Ileana D’Cruz along with her manager and besides me, director Anees Bazmee was also present. She had said she liked the idea of the film and her role. And within a week she would sign an agreement,” Gaurang said.
“That time when we met everything was fine. We had negotiated price and all. Today she says doesn’t want to do Aankhen 2. Its her wish. Its fine now. All the best. I don’t want to put allegations. I just want this matter to end,” he said.
It was on August 17 when the makers of Aankhen 2 had announced the star cast of the sequel including megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Arjun Rampal who were part of the first film. Joining them would be Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and south actress Regina Cassandra. Two more actors will be part of the project but their names have not been announced. – CINEWS
