Jannat 2 has been steadily soaring up the popularity charts. The movie has managed to stay in the limelight for one reason or another! The official trailer of the movie has been well received by the audience and the music has also been appreciated. Signs look positive for this sequel of the super-hit Jannat.
Prachi Desai and Jacqueline Fernandez were approached to play the female lead role. Both actresses refused, as the role required extensive skin show. It is reported that Sajid Khan told Jacqueline that she would get type-casted in such bold roles, prompting the actress to refuse the role. The role ultimately fell in the lap of 2007 Miss India International winner, Esha Gupta. Randeep Hooda, who essayed a brilliant role in the recently released Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster, enacts the character of a cop this time.
Bhatt Camp had first kept the names Informer and then Blood Money, both of which didn’t appeal. The movie was then slated to be a sequel to Jannat. The filming of the movie finished on January 17th 2012 and the first look of the movie was released on 15th of March 2012.
The issue of Jannat 2 is markedly different to its prequel. While the first instalment of the series was based on the issue of Cricket betting, Jannat 2 has a plot based on the illegal arms dealing in the Delhi locality.
Vishesh Films will be hoping to strike it big again after their recent success Blood Money. A report of fallout between Mahesh Bhatt and nephew Emraan Khan has also created decent hype for the movie. Whether that is a publicity stunt or a genuine problem, nobody knows!
