A dose of eroticism in a thriller is a sure-shot hit formula for the box office figures, If only they happen to get the content right. The trailer of Aksar 2 was released today and there were quite a few surprises. Biggest one, of course, was the presence of former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth. We know he is a part of Richa Chaddha’s Cabaret too but that film is yet to get a release date. This will be Sree’s Bollywood debut. Secondly, we had expected some intimate scenes between Gautam Rode and Zareen Khan but it is actor Abhinav Shukla who is getting all cozy with the actress. Another surprise is the fact that Gautam’s character has some grey shades.
Also, it looks like Zareen and Abhinav are a much in love couple and the former decides to do something that can be counterproductive for them. She decides to take the risk and their lives turn. Gautam Rode is shown as this no-nonsense investment banker and his character is an enigmatic one. Zareen flaunts a lot of her curves in the trailer but we don’t get an interesting glimpse into her emotional journey. Abhinav Shukla seems to have done all the kissing and intimate scenes so far. We were extremely disappointed to see the talented and gorgeous Lillete Dubey in that horrendous wig. Her character seems to be the most mysterious one. It’s always better to not to judge a book by its cover.
The film is yet to get released let us hope this will be a good one from its makers.
