Nawazuddin Siddiqui with Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Aankhen’ sequel?


Known for portraying complex roles, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has now been approached to play one of the three lead blind characters in a sequel to Aankhen (2002). Interestingly, Nawaz will once again team up with Amitabh Bachchan for the film, with whom he is currently shooting in Kolkata for Sujoy Ghosh’s Te3n.

Sources reveal, “To be directed by Anees Bazmee, barring Amitabh Bachchan, the original cast of the film (Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal and Paresh Rawal) won’t be repeated. While it has been reported that Anil Kapoor and John Abraham have been roped in, Nawaz is the latest to have been approached to join the cast. He has heard the narration and the makers are keen on having him on board. While the story will be new, the three lead characters will remain blind this time around as well.”
