Aksar 2 teaser: Zareen Khan, Gautam Rode star in this sequel to Emraan Hashmi's 2006 film
Aksar 2 stars Zareeb Khan and Gautam Rode in lead roles.
Sometimes, sequels to hit films come out in less than a year of the original film.
But sometimes, especially when you are makers of films like Aksar, sequels mysteriously pop up more than a decade later.
The original film Aksar, which was a thriller starring Emraan Hashmi,Udita Goswami and Dino Morea in lead roles, is back with a sequel.
Only this time the lead characters are different — this one stars Zareen Khan, Gautam Rode as the main protagonists. Mohit Madaan and Lillete Dubey also star in pivotal roles.
The 15-second teaser trailer of the film is out, which sadly reveals nothing of the story, nor does it show us the lead characters. Instead there's a digitalised font which asks the question, 'How often...Do you...See the trap...'.
Anant Mahadevan, the director of the first film, returns to direct the sequel. Though we don't know what the plot of this film might be, since it is titled 'Aksar 2', it might follow/replicate the events of the first film.
The fist film involved a love triangle between the lead protagonists: Udita Goswami and Dino Morea play a happily married couple — and Emraan Hashmi plays a man who gets embroiled in a blackmailing plot between the two. The film grossed around Rs 8 crore in box-office collections when it was first released in 2006 and was not very well received by the critics.
Mohit Madaan, who plays a character named Bachchan in the film told Bollywood Life, "It’s completely opposite to me and it was a challenge to perform this role (sic). With this film, I will get a chance to grow as an actor and keep doing good films ahead."
There is no date announced yet for the film's release. Here, however, is the teaser:

Aksar 2 makers claim that Zarine Khan's allegations of unprofessional treatment do not hold water as they did not surface even during the post-production.
It is believed that Baadshaho is based on Indira Gandhi's orders to take over Jaigarh Fort (which was believed to be the hiding place for Raja Mansingh of Jaipur's treasure — spoils of war from his campaign in Afghanistan during Emperor Akbar's time) at the time of the Emergency.
Zareen Khan has accused the makers of Aksar 2 of mistreating her and neglecting her security requirements because of which she "could've been molested".
