The 2002 thriller film Aankhen was a major hit, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Paresh Rawal and Sushmita Sen. The sequel, Aankhen 2 was delayed due to legal wrangles, however, media reports on Monday said that the sequel is back on track.

Rising stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Kartik Aaryan are said to be on the finalised list for the film Aankhen 2, where they will be featured alongside with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan himself.

The remaining cast for the film is yet to be finalised. According to reports, Aankhen 2 would be produced by RajTaru Studios which won the court battle against the producer of the first installment Gaurang Doshi.

The film Aankhen told the story of a bank heist like no other, as it was to be carried out by 3 blind men, trained by an official instructor of the blind, based on inputs from a former bank employee.

In 2016, the original producer Gaurang had announced a sequel to the 2002 flick, which would star Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and south actress Regina Cassandra. However, the makers landed into legal troubles and there were no developments to the project.

Moving from TV serials to Bollywood films, Sushant Singh Rajput has slowly been building his presence in Bollywood, and has starred in hit films such as 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story' and the superhit Aamir Khan-starrer PK.

Kartik Aaryan, on the other hand, acted in a few moderately successful films before starring in the superhit Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, after which he has reportedly been flooded with film offers.
