Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif will be the leading lady of the 2002 hit movie Aankhen’s sequel. Anees Bazmee will be directing the movie’s second installment. However, initially the actress was not too keen to be a part of this movie as the script didn’t really impress her. Aankhen 2 comprises some A-lister actors like megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Anil Kapoor. Kat was still not convinced even when the makers offered her a fee hike.
The original film Aankhen was directed by well known director Vipul Amrutlal Shah. The movie was the original adaptation of the Gujarati play Andhalo Pato. This play too was directed by Shah. Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Paresh Rawal, Amitabh Bachchan and Sushmita Sen played the lead roles in the film’s original version.
As per sources, the main character of the film is a leading lady who brings the blind men together. Sources further revealed, “Scripting of the sequel has been completed. Like in the original, where Sushmita Sen plans the bank robbery, the sequel has a woman as the mastermind.”
However, Katrina gave a green signal for this project when she heard that the film will revolve around a woman and three blind men.
A source close to Kat revealed, “Paperwork is still to be completed but an announcement will be made soon. Katrina is also on the verge of signing two other big banner films which will roll this year. She is currently working out her dates for all the three projects.”
