Yes, you have heard it right! The tinsel town is abuzz with rumours that John Abraham who was last seen in 'Rocky Handsome' has now opted out from 'Aankhen 2' where he was to play a blind man for the first time in his career.
A leading daily quoted a source as saying, "John and Anees were keen to work together for Aankhen 2, post 'Welcome Back', but the actor’s date diary was in a mess post his injury on the sets of 'Force 2'. He had to recuperate from his injury for a few weeks leaving the 'Force 2' schedule in disarray. Also, producer Gaurang Doshi could not afford John’s price after he hiked it to `12 crore, post the success of his last film. The makers, including Anees, tried to negotiate with John to bring his price down, but he was adamant. The makers are now looking for another A-Lister for the role.”
Meanwhile we have also been hearing that Amitabh Bachchan will play a baddie here too in this sequel. The film will have a new entry in the form of Anil Kapoor. Further reports suggest that the makers have approached Katrina Kaif to play one of the leading ladies.
