'Aankhen 2': Arjun Rampal drops major hint about heist drama

New Delhi:

Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal, who is quite excited about his upcoming movie 'Aankhen 2', has revealed that the movie will be a bigger heist drama.

The movie happens to be the second instalment of the 2002 release successful heist drama 'Aankhen', and Arjun will be seen reprising his role of a blind man in the movie.

During his recent interview, the 'Rock On' actor gave a hint about the story, saying 'Aankhen 2' will revolve around the thefts in casinos across South Africa.

"It's a heist that takes place at casinos. How these blind men carry out the robbery is what the film is about. I have spent time with blind people during my college days, they calculate and do things. They never make mistakes. I tie a band on my eyes at home and I practice with this... we will be able to bring authenticity," Arjun was quoted as saying.

Interestingly, 'Aankhen 2' will have some changes in the cast, as Akshay Kumar won't be a part of the sequel. On the other hand, while Amitabh Bachchan will play a crucial role in the sequel, Anil Kapoor and Arshad Warsi will be the fresh addition to the cast.

While Arjun admitted that he would love to have Akki in the movie, he also asserted that the 'Rustom' actor is busy with his professional commitments

"I don't think Akshay will be there. He is busy and doesn't have dates. We wanted him in the film. I like Akshay and the kind of work he is doing. He has grown so much as an actor. We would have loved to have him in the film. But we have a wonderful team, there will be new generation of actors," Rampal said.

According to the media reports, 'Aankhen' 2 will hit the floors soon and will be shot in South Africa.

Arjun Rampal is, indeed, having high hopes with this sequel and is confident that the sequel will be more riveting than the original.

"'Aankhen' was a special film in my career. People talk about this film even today and it means a lot to us. I am very excited about "Aankhen 2" and we are planning to take the film ahead. Recently "Kaabil" had come and people liked it. The challenge is not to compete with anybody but to raise the bar," he added.

Currently, Arjun is busy with his next release 'Daddy' in which he portrays the role of gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli.

"It will come out soon. We will lock our dates soon. I am happy with the film. The editing is on, the post production is on. The film will come out in April or May," said Arjun.
