We recently reported that due to creative differences Arjun Rampal would not be reprising his role in Farhan Akhtar’s highly anticipated Don 2. Everyone was wondering who would take the hunk’s place in the film that is a sequel to the hit Don – The Chase Begins Again that starred Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra. Well, we can now report that another hunk will be joining the cast and that is Kunal Kapoor.
Kunal confirmed the reports himself by tweeting, “Yes, i am doin Don 2.. Very excited!! Really looking forward to working wit King Khan and Farhan ( how nice, tht rhymes )”
Producer Ritesh Sidhwani says that Kunal will be seen in a new character in the film, “Kunal hasn’t replaced Arjun in the film. There is no Jasjeet in the film. Instead we have introduced three new parts in the film and Kunal plays one of them and Lara Dutta plays the second one. We still have to cast for the third character. From the original cast we have Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani and Om Puri.”
Don 2 goes to the floor this October and will release in December of 2011. The film is going to be shot in several locations including Switzerland, Germany, Malaysia, South Africa and India.
