John Goes Blind
In 2006, producer Gaurang Doshi announced a sequel to the 2002 hit, Aankhen. Vipul Amrutlal Shah who had directed the original, made way for Sachin Pilgaonkar and finally Aneez Bazmee. The Ready director who recently wrapped up his first sequel for the year, Welcome Back, has another one in the pipeline, Boney Kapoor’s No Entry Main Entry. Aankhen 2 will roll in May and could start before the No Entry sequel because Salman Khan doesn’t have dates to spare. Meanwhile, Aankhen 2 will take off from where the original left. Based on a Gujarati play, Andhalo Pato, the original film had Amitabh Bachchan hatching a plan to rob the bank he worked for, with three blind men, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal and Paresh Rawal. They succeed in their mission but then things go haywire. Part two will start from where Part one left off—Amitabh Bachchan getting released from jail and recruiting three new blind men, one of whom is John Abraham.
