After releasing Don — The Chase Begins as one of the mega Bollywood Diwali releases in 2006, director Farhan Aktar is planning to release the sequel Don 2 in a Diwali bonanza in 2010.
When asked about the delays in shoot Farhan replied, “Don 2 requires a summer shoot and since in the summer of 2009 both me and Shah Rukh, being both busy with our acting assignments, the shoot for our film will only begin next summer which is of 2010.”
Sources however have revealed that Priyanka Chopra will also be starring in the sequel opposite Shah Rukh Khan when the film goes to floor in April 2010. The director/actor/singer, who has recently led a full diary due to films Rock On!! and Luck By Chance, has no time to sit in the director’s chair until the summer of next year.
Sources added “Direction is Farhan’s first love and he likes to direct films, but only one film in two – three years. He did Dil Chahta Hai in 2001, Lakshya in 2004, Don in 2006 and so in 2010, one will see a film from him, for sure.”
Don 2 which is said to be a continuation of Don has been in the pipeline for a while with the script currently being prepared by Farhan Aktar, who is also handling the pre-production work required for the film.
