At the point when Katrina Kaif was offered a main role in Anees Bazmee’s sequel of his 2002 heist-thriller, “Aankhen,” she was not exactly awed. Indeed, even the stellar cast, including Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and two other A-listers, a grasping script, , narrated by the makers and the lure of a remuneration twice her usual fee , couldn’t persuade her.
The original film, coordinated by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, was Shah’s remake of Gujarati play, ‘Andhalo Pato’ (Blindman’s Buff). The film, including Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Paresh Rawal and Sushmita Sen, had gone ahead to get film industry accomplishment and also basic recognition.
Now, Mirror has learnt that the central character of the sequel is a woman who brings the blind men together. “Scripting of the sequel has been completed. Like in the original, where Sushmita Sen plans the bank robbery, the sequel too has a woman as the mastermind,” reveals a source close to the development.
And when Kat who has just wrapped up her time-travel adventure, ‘Baar Baar Dekho,’ opposite Sidharth Malhotra and is presently filming Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’ with Ranbir Kapoor, heard that the film would revolve around a woman and the three blind men, she green-lit the project. “Paperwork is still to be completed but an announcement will be made soon. Katrina is also on the verge of signing two other big banner films which will roll this year. She is right now working out her dates for all the three ventures,” uncovers a source near the performer. “CINEWS”
