Finally we have confirmation that the sequel to the Shah Rukh Khan’s Don will be coming; however it is not soon. Director Farhan Akhtar has not only said that yes it is true there will be a Don 2 but that it will start shooting next year!
Farhan told IANS: “I will be working with Shah Rukh Khan for Don 2. We will begin shooting for it in the second half of next year.”
In May of this year producer Ritesh Sidhwani said that the film will continue on from the end of the last Don and revealed that not only SRK will be coming back, “Yes Priyanka has been signed opposite Shah Rukh in Don 2. It is a sequel obviously and when we locked the story and the screenplay, we knew that we needed Priyanka for the film. Similarly, we have also signed on Boman Irani and Arjun Rampal.”
But in that interview he would not give anything else away, “The story is indeed ready and everyone is pretty excited about the film. We will start shooting mid next year and we are looking for April 2010 release, so what’s the point talking about the film right now? All I can say is that the film will take off from where Don ended.”
Guess we will have to wait and watch and see what Farhan has planned for Don 2. We will keep you up to date so watch this space for more!
