12 years after Vipul Shah's directorial debut Aankhen
, about a bunch of blind men undertaking a dare devilish bank heist, the film's producer Gaurang Doshi
is all set to roll with the sequel.
Gaurang had a massive fall-out with Vipul Shah during the making of Aankhen
. They parted acrimoniously and the sequel remained uncertain for all these years. Until now. Interestingly, Aankhen
2 will be directed by Anees Bazmee
who had a fall-out with Vipul Shah during the making of Singh Is Kinng
Confirming this Anees
says, "Yes, Gaurang and I have met over Aankhen
2. I am now in Ahmedabad for a function. As soon as I return to Mumbai we'll finalize the details." Adds Gaurang Doshi
, "12 years seems like a long time to sit on a sequel. But what to do? So much has happened since then. Aankhen
2 will have a completely new cast."
The original film was top-lined by Amitabh Bachchan
