Arjun Rampal

Akshay Kumar was unable to commit to 'Aankhen 2'

Arjun Rampal, who will be playing a visually impaired character in the much-awaited sequel to ‘Aankhen’ (2002), said he was not competing with anyone but the challenge is to raise the standard remains.

“Aankhen is always a special film in my career and still people talk about this film wherever I go… technically we are much improved now we want to take the movie to another level,” Rampal told the media. “There is only one and half months left to start the shoot in South Africa. We will be doing some amazing stunts. So we are training hard for that.” He went on to say, “I am trying to carry forward the role from the prequel and how to enhance it and for that, I need to train hard.”

When asked if Akshay Kumar, who was in the previous film, will be seen in the sequel, Rampal replied, “The only two characters which repeated are Amitabh Bachchan and me. However, “we wanted, but Akshay is busy with his films.”

Produced by Gaurang Doshi and directed by Anees Bazmee, the film features Bachchan and the three blind men will be played by Anil Kapoor, Rampal and Arshad Warsi. Ilena D’Cruz will be seen playing the female lead, reports Mid Day.
