Mumbai: Ever since Amitabh Bachchan confirmed that he will play the baddie in 2002 hit heist drama Aankhen's squeal, speculations about the film's star cast have been rife. 

Though Bollywood's Big B is on board, the project is struggling with its star cast as every other actor who has been approached for the film, has backed out.

Earlier it was believed that the sequel was to star Akshay Kumar, who was also part of the original film's star cast. However, the actor rubbished the reports of doing 'Aankhen 2'. 

“I am not aware about it (the sequel). I am not doing it,” Akshay said yesterday in the event. The first film, directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, also starred Amitabh Bachchan, Paresh Rawal, Arjun Rampal and Sushmita Sen.

Now recent reports reveal that Ajay Devgn, who was to do the film, has backed out of the project as the actor has no dates to spare. Same goes for Arshad Warsi. Even Emraan Hashmi was approached for the role but it didn't work out.

According to latest buzz, the film, which will be directed by Aneez Basmee, will be officially announced tomorrow in Mumbai. 

So if the film is miserably struggling with its star cast, what are they going to announce tomorrow? Will Amitabh Bachchan arrive at the event alone to make his film official? Well, guess we'll find out soon.
