Amitabh Bachchan, Sidharth Malhotra, Akshaye Khanna starrer will kick off the first schedule of their upcoming film Aankhen 2 from May 2021.
In the 2002 film Aankhen, the cine lovers saw three blind men successfully rob a bank, and now, the sequel of the same will soon go on the floors. In the sequel, only Amitabh Bachchan’s character Vijay Singh Rajput, who played the mastermind in the original thriller, will remain constant. Over the last few years, in terms of the production house, casting and director, the sequel has undergone several changes. Apart from Big B, the film will also star Sidharth Malhotra, Akshaye Khanna and Sunil Grover in key roles.
The film will be helmed by Abhinay Deo, who earlier directed Delhi Belly. Now, according to a Mid-Day report, the filmmaker is going to begin the first schedule in May 2021. Vijay Singh Rajput aka Amitabh’s character will take the story forward. While speaking with Mid-Day, a trade source said, “The heist in Aankhen 2 is being planned on a grander scale. The temperamental Vijay Singh Rajput returns after serving his prison sentence and leads a new team of visually-impaired people, played by Sidharth, Akshaye and Sunil, as they rob a gaming establishment.”
He also said that considering the story is set abroad, the unit has done recce in the UK and Bulgaria. And if all goes well then the three actors will kick off the first schedule from May 20. Talking about the latest addition to the film, Sidharth Malhotra, the source said that he is currently shooting for Mission Majnu in Lucknow, and will begin prep from mid-April.
However, on the other hand, the filmmaker said that Mr Bachchan, Akshaye Khanna and Sidharth Malhotra are part of Aankhen 2 while they are in the process of finalising the fourth actor. “At this point, I cannot comment on anything else as there’s no surety about the shooting schedule,” Deo stated.
