Major drama! Aankhen 2, the sequel to Aankhen, was announced at an event recently with Amitabh Bachchan, Arjun Rampal, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Ileana D’Cruz in the lead roles. However, the only actors present at the launch were Mr Bachchan and Arshad Warsi, although the makers did show the media a video of Ileana to confirm that she was a part of it. But things took a weird turn when Ileana’s manager came forth to say that she’s not doing the film at all. In fact, sources have said that Ileana was furious when she came to know they made such an announcement, and that she was contemplating legal action.

Now, however, producer Gaurang Doshi has hit back at Ileana. According to him, they met with Ileana and she had agreed to do the film, but said that her agency takes a week to process the paperwork. He said that they met again later and Ileana said she was ready for the mahurat shot, and agreed to be a part of the launch.

Doshi says he’s surprised by this recent turn of events, and has tried to speak to Ileana about what went wrong, but the actress doesn’t seem to want to speak to them in return. He also claims that they didn’t use Ileana’s name for publicity, as – if that’s what they wanted – then they would’ve said the film starred Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif. Now, he says it looks like they will have to get “a better actress” on-board for the film.

No idea how true the story is from either side, but we’ll have to wait to see how this unfolds!
