S Sreesanth to do cameo in the sequel to a 2006 thriller
The sequel to Emraan Hashmi-starrer Aksar (2006) went on the floors yesterday, albeit after a month-long delay, with a fresh story and star cast in place. We hear, beleaguered ex cricketer S Sreesanth has a bit role in the film starring Zareen Khan, in what will be his second Bollywood outing.

Sreesanth, who used to be popular as much for his fast bowling as dancing chops until he was embroiled in the 2013 spot-fixing scandal, forayed into B-Town with Pooja Bhatt’s next, Cabaret. He will shortly begin shooting for Aksar 2, which rolled out yesterday. Incidentally, Aksar had gone on floors on the same day (July 7) 11 years ago.
Says a source, “The makers are yet to sign Zareen’s love interest in the film, but want to complete a few portions with the other actors, including telly star Gautam Rode, who is one of the three main characters, Lillete Dubey and Sreesanth.”
Varun Bajaj, the film’s producer, says, “Sreesanth has a small part. We are in the process of finalising the actor who Zareen will romance on screen.”
