What can I say about Don 2? The sequel to this 2006 release sees ‘The Chase Continue’ late in 2011. With Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, and Boman Irani, reprising their roles from the previous film, Lara Dutta and Kunal Kapoor have been added to the mix and are being introduced as new characters. There was also supposed to be a surprise cameo appearance in the film made by Hrithik Roshan but that cat got let out of the bag when he was spotted shooting in Berlin.
Rumors are that the idea for this sequel had been conceptualized during the production of the first film, with the announcement of Don 2 made following the release of Akhtar’s Don 1. However, due to prior commitments made by Akhtar and Khan the film was delayed.
But (and there is always a but) Don fans will not have to wait much longer! Shooting for Don 2 began on October 10, 2010 in Berlin, Germany with rumors circulating that this Akhtar release has already had its rights sold to Reliance Big Pictures from Excel Entertainment for whopping Rs 125 crores. This is one Christmas release to watch out for next year.
