Farhan Akhtar may already be deemed as one of the most talented new comers in the acting department but that doesn’t stop the director side of the man to take precedence over any other angle in the creative aspect of the man. The actor-director-producer-singer has gone into solitude for the last two months to pen the script of Don 2 – hence the reason he has not been seen out and about at any social events in the city.
While producer and partner Ritiesh Sidhwani confirmed the news, he also went ahead to claim that the sequel is going to be one to watch out for, “He wanted to write a sequel that goes beyond the first film. And I think he has cracked it. The script for Don 2 rocks.” Another source went on to claim to a leading publication, “Farhan is in competition with his own father. Trying to equal, let alone better what Javed Akhtar wrote in the first Don, is not an easy task. He has to get the writing right to make the sequel a worthy successor to the remake of the original Don.”
Farhan is so determined to write a completely fresh script, that he has even told his wife and children to refrain from disturbing him until the script is done, after which he will return to the real world. The film will begin rolling in Germany next summer and will repeat the cast from the first part: Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani and Arjun Rampal.
