Ananth Mahadevan is coming back in the director’s seat after directing the original in 2006. Film critic and bollywood trade tracker Taran Adarsh shared the teaser on his twitter account earlier this morning. Take a look:

Sequels in bollywood are a norm and the producers of a film are quick to cash-in on the success of a film by announcing sequels to it. What is surprising about Aksar 2 though is the fact that it is being made 11 years after its predecessor was released which starred Emraan Hashmi. Also Aksar was definitely not among the high scoring box office films starring the actor. So, the news of a sequel to it is quite puzzling, honestly. Aksar (2006) starred Udita Goswami and Dino Morea apart from Emraan Hashmi. The film’s music album composed by Himesh Reshammiya went on to become quite a rage much like the other films starring Emraan. Mithoon, the music composer and Sameer, the lyricist have been roped in for the sequel.
Aksar 2 boasts of a fresh new script and star cast that has nothing in common with the 2006 release except for the thriller genre, its title and also its makers. The film’s supporting cast includes Abhinav Shukla, S.Sreesanth, Mohit Madaan, Lillete Dubey and Sofia Hayat.
The teaser of the film asks “How often do you see the trap?” which suggests the story is about conspiracies and betrayal, just like the previous one in the franchise. Zareen Khan who has revamped her image and turned into a sexy siren with her film choices (Hate Story 3) seems to be determined to continue with the same for this film as well. Television star Gautam Rode, who did not quite click with his previous bollywood films years ago, is out to try his luck all over again.
