‘Aankhen 2’: Did Arshad Warsi just took revenge from Akshay Kumar for taking away ‘Jolly LLB 2’?
Recently, Akshay Kumar had shared the first look of his upcoming movie ‘Jolly LLB 2’, in which he plays the role of a lawyer. Akki’s new look has created a lot of buzz, with it becoming the new topic of discussion in tinselvile.
Notably, Arshad Warsi had played the lead role in the first instalment of the movie. However, Akki has replaced him in the sequel.
The ‘Ishqiya’ actor didn’t seem much pleased with this replacement and went on to say, ““I was supposed to do Jolly LLB 2, but Fox Star Studios needed a bigger star, so they chose Akshay. It makes it easier for marketing, it makes it easier to have a hit. With me, you (the filmmakers) have to make a good film, so that is the problem. You can make money with me only if it’s a very good film. If you have a bigger star, then even if the film is not that good, you still manage to cover the money so risk factor from the producer’s point of view is less”.
But looks like Arshad has now got the perfect chance to take up the ‘revenge’.
Interestingly, the actor has now been roped in for ‘Aankhen 2’, which happens to be the sequel of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Aankhen’.
So when Arshad Warsi was quizzed about this perfect ‘revenge’, the actor quipped,
“Bahut Purani planning hai. Humne bachpan main socha tha kya karenge. ( It’s all old planning. We had decided from our childhood what we would do)”.
However, he further clarified, “It’s a coincidence. It happens at times. Abhi isme koi kuch nahi hai. Hota hai aisa. Kabhi koi yeh role kar leta hai. So it’s fine.”
Directed by Anees Bazmee, ‘Aankhen 2’ will also feature Anil Kapoor, Ileana D'Cruz have joined Arjun Rampal and Amitabh Bachchan in key roles.
