Release of Don 2 – The Chase Continues is a little under half a year away, but we are guilty as charged about the palpable excitement with which we juice up every teeny bit of news we get regarding Farhan Akhtar’s directorial venture. While last week we shared with you 5 awesome things about Don 2, and this week here we are with more information on the film starring the King of Bollywood – Shah Rukh Khan.
While Shah Rukh, Priyanka, Boman and Om Puri continue to essay the roles of their characters Don, Roma, Vardhaan and Malik respectively, Lara Dutta and Kunal Kapoor are the new additions to the fiery ensemble, playing the characters Lara and Sameer Ali Chaudry respectively. While the first part concentrated on Don’s rule in South–Asia, the sequel transports the team to Europe where Don conspires to reign as an international kingpin magnifying the grandeur and scale of the film.
Cashing in on SRK’s popularity in Germany, Don 2 is the first film to have an Indo-German co-production. Mathias Schwerbrock (of Film Base Berlin) is the co-producer of the film along with Excel Entertainment and Red Chillies Production.
While at the moment, Don 2 faces no competition from any Bollywood film slated for release on the same day, the other Hollywood film that hits the screens is Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible 4, which incidentally features Anil Kapoor in a cameo.
To keep the franchise identity exclusive, Shah Rukh has apparently registered the Don “D” tattoo that he sports in the movie. And if all works well, Farhan has candidly confessed that he is completely besotted by the franchise and would love to work on the next part as well.
We will continue to bring you regular updates, but for now feast your eyes on the brand new stills of the film we’ve got for you!
