Exclusive: Sushant Singh Rajput and Kartik Aaryan to star alongside Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Aankhen 2’

Two years ago, Anees Bazmee and Gaurang Doshi had made a big announcement – they were teaming up to make the sequel to ‘Aankhen’. The original that released in the early 2000s starred Amitabh Bachchan along with Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal and Paresh Rawal. But a legal battle soon ensued resulting in Gaurang being barred from producing the film.

But now, the original producers who had the rights to ‘Aankhen’ are planning to develop the film into a franchise. Although Bazmee’s film also had Big B along with Anil Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Ileana D’Cruz and Regina Casandra, the new film w0n’t have Bazmee helming it. And the cast too has undergone a huge change.

A source from the film reveals to us exclusively, “The main cast has been almost locked. Mr Bachchan is still the main lead in the film. He plays the main antagonist again. But joining him will be Sushant Singh Rajput and Kartik Aaryan. The makers wanted two popular young actors and we hear, they are in advanced talks with both Sushant and Kartik. They have verbally given their nod but the modalities and the remunerations need to be worked out.”

But if this works out, it will be one helluva cast. What say?
