So this finally happened. A producer decided to cast Kareena Kapoor Khan’s ex-lover Shahid Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor’s current lover Katrina Kaif opposite each other. This movie is going to be a sequel of Aankhen. There is no official announcement about this casting yet. However, a little birdie told us that the official announcement will be done in New Year. Right now the film industry is all about the competition between Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani. So the producers have a fear that their announcement will not get a good buzz. They want to announce the movie at a time when there will be no other big news.
The original movie came a long time ago. Aankhen had Amitabh Bachchan, Sushmita Sen, Arjun Rampal and Akshay Kumar in the cast. Apart from Big B, no other old cast will be back in the sequel. Aankhen 2 is all set to get a new director too. Nawazuddin Siddique will reportedly play the role of bad guy in the sequel. Big B played the role of a mastermind who trains three blind people to rob a bank. Sushmita played his assistance.
Shahid Kapoor’s last film Shaandar was a disaster at the box office. Katrina Kaif too is not at the top. Her arch rival Deepika Padukone is miles ahead of her at the moment. This movie could easily save the career for both these two actors. But the question is why this sequel is coming after a long gap? A lot of people even forgot about the original movie. The original movie was not a big hit at the Box Office and only a handful of critics said good things about the script. May be Shahid and Katrina are taking a big risk with this film. But who knows, Bollywood movies are always full of surprises, so this movie may turn out to be good.
