As earlier we reported, actress Ileana D’Cruz has decided to take legal action against the producer of Aankhen 2 for wrongly using her name in the film. The Rustom actress has made accusations on the makers of Aankhen 2, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Arshad Warsi, Anil Kapoor and Arjun Rampal.
Just after the launch event where Ileana was introduced as the actress of the film, a controversy hit the film. It came as a shock when Ileana took to twitter to clarify that she had not signed Aankhen 2 as she had refused the project when offered.
However, producer Gaurang Doshi himself has come out to speak the truth. Doshi said to a leading daily, “Aankhen 2 doesn’t need Ileana, we already have our four aces Amitji, Arjun, Arshad, and Anil. If we wanted to use an actor’s name to promote our film, we would have said that Aankhen 2 stars Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif! Ileana is not going to get us, additional distributors, exhibitors or viewers.“
He also revealed that he had once met Ileana and her manager Nimisha at a five-star restaurant for reading the script. Ileana had agreed and loved the script. However, she mentioned that her agency takes a week to process the paperwork so the makers of the film need to wait. He further added that someone has misguided the actress.
Well, in a SHOCKING twist of events, according to what we hear, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is the reason why Ileana has stepped out of the film at the last moment. Ileana expected Akshay Kumar to be the part of the sequel and it seems him not being the part of the sequel is the reason why the actress has stepped out.
Actor Arshad Warsi has replaced Akshay Kumar in Aankhen 2.
Is Ileana influenced by Akshay Kumar? Only time will tell better!
