"I believe in astrology and numerology, but I will get to know (its effect) only after the release of the film," said Ekta.
The successful filmmaker compares filmmaking with gambling.
"Filmmaking is all about gambling - just one weekend decides the fate, while in TV serials you can change the track, kill someone and bring him or her back, but films are scarier and exciting."
If part one saw Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi, for the sequel Akshay Kumar has been roped in and he plays his first negative role in the underworld drama.
Ekta said: "Bad is the new good. I love his half smile, which is too scary and sexy. He is incredibly sexy in the film."
Director Milan Luthria is the common factor in both the films - he directed the first part and wielded the megaphone for the sequel as well.
Sonakshi Sinha also features in the film slated for an August 15 release.
