There is sad news for those waiting for the Don 2 sequel directed by Farhan Akhtar, it has been postponed. Farhan has had to push the dates back because SRK is busy with Karan Johar’s My Name is Khan. “With Shah Rukh’s dates being a problem now, I don’t know when I’ll be able to start Don 2. I’m very clear that it will be made only with Shah Rukh and Priyanka Chopra. Let’s see when it happens,” Farhan said.
So what will the actor/producer/director/TV host be doing instead? He will be acting in his third film Kartik Calling Kartik. And signed to star opposite his is the actress of the moment Deepika Padukone! The film, which goes to the floor in April is a psychological thriller directed by newcomer Vijay Lalwani.
Farhan said about Deepika being chosen for the role, “We needed a very beautiful heroine… in fact, we needed a stunner.” Adding that it did not matter that Deepika was taller than him, “I’ve always looked up to women anyway. It was the script that demanded Deepika, not me.”
Farhan also revealed that after Kartik Calling Kartik he will don the director’s cap again, and it is going to be a rom-com, “It won’t be a teenybopper romance, but a mature love story.”
Recently seen starring in the critically acclaimed film Luck By Chance, Farhan says he is proud of sister Zoya’s directorial debut film. “I’m extremely proud of Zoya’s work. I’m happy for her as a brother and as a producer. It’s great to know that the film has received appreciation from all corners and that Zoya’s eye for detail, her writing and the way she has extracted performances from the actors are lauded too.” We hear Zoya is over the moon with the response to the film!
