In January, BizAsia reported that Anees Bazmee would be making ‘Aankhen 2’. At the time, Bazmee had confirmed that John Abraham would be one of the newbies to join the franchise. Now, it’s emerged that Abraham has in fact replaced Akshay Kumar who was in the 2002 original.
Kumar is thought to have had to let go of the film because he already has many projects in hand. Anil Kapoor is also going to be in the second instalment and will have his character especially written for him but he will not be blind like the other characters. Bazmee spoke to DNA India, “Anil�۪s character is a new one. John and the two other heroes are playing blind characters.”
There will be two new actresses in ‘Aankhen 2’ and Bipasha Basu and Sushmita Sen will not be reprising their roles.
