12 years after Vipul Shah's directorial debut Aankhen, about a bunch of blind men undertaking a dare devilish bank heist, the film's producer Gaurang Doshi is all set to roll with the sequel. And this time Anees Bazmee will helm the project.

Doshi reportedly had a fall-out with Shah during the making of Aankhen. They parted acrimoniously and the sequel remained uncertain for all these years.

Interestingly Anees Bazmee had a fall-out with Shah during the making of Singh Is Kinng. Confirming this Bazmee said, "Yes, Gaurang and I have met over 'Aankhen 2'. I am right now in Ahmedabad for a function. As soon as I return to Mumbai, we'll finalise the details."

The original film was top-lined by Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Sushmita Sen, Arjun Rampal, Paresh Rawal and Bipasha Basu.

Doshi said: "Twelve years seems like a long time to sit on a sequel. But what to do? So much has happened since then. Aankhen 2 will have a completely new cast. But I can assure you, the actors would be as exciting this time as they were in Aankhen. God willing we'll make a stupendous success," he added.
