Ananth Mahadevan reveals why it took him 11 years to make ‘Aksar 2’

Filmmaker Ananth Mahadevan is back with the second film in the ‘Aksar’ franchise after a gap of 11 long years. While the first one featured Emraan Hashmi, Udita Goswami and Dino Morea in pivotal roles, ‘Aksar 2’ will see Zareen Khan, Gautam Rode and Abhinav Shukla as leads. Franchise films often turn out to be profitable venture​s​. But what took him 11 years to come out with the second part?

In an exclusive conversation, Ananth Mahadevan answered this question. He said, “After ‘Aksar’ I went into a different zone. I discovered or rather I wanted to devote myself to pure cinema. So I started doing ‘Staying Alive’, ‘Red Alert: The War Within’, ‘Mee Sindhutai Sapkal’, ‘Gour Hari Dastaan’, ‘Rough Book’ and now my latest film ‘Doctor Rakhmabai’ which is a biopic on India’s first practising lady doctor. So those were the six or seven films I did in the last ten years. Then Shyam and Narendra Bajaj thought why not to take the brand forward and come up with another cunning, wicked, conniving kind of drama of today’s times. And we thought, yes let’s do ‘Aksar 2’ if we get the right kind of plot/script. So, I was busy with my films, they (Shyam and Narendra Bajaj) were busy with their films and I guess it had to happen ​at the appointed hour.” (Also Check: Aksar 2: The second trailer takes us one step closer to the mystery)
