There is good and bad news about the long-due sequel to Vipul Shah’s 2002 thriller Aankhen. While we know that that producer Gaurang Doshi has signed Anees Bazmi to take over the directorial duties in the sequel what we don’t know as yet is that the original cast is being replaced except for the Big B whom both Gaurang and Anees are keen to cast as the original character.

The rest of the cast is being changed completely. Admits Anees, “Yes, both Gaurang and I are very keen to have Bachchan Saab on board. He is the central point of interest in Aankhen.

I’m keen to work with him. We are working on getting him to agree. The rest of the cast would be completely different from the original film.
However it would be the same situation in the plot of blind characters pulling off a daring heist.” Incidentally Anees has been keen to work with the Big B for a while now.

The prolific director wanted the Big B to play the role vacated by Feroz Khan inWelcome Back. But the dates didn’t work out.
