Mumbai, Oct 26: While his upcoming film ‘Don 2', a sequel to the 2006 film ‘Don- the Chase Begins Again', is slated for a release in December this year, director Farhan Akhtar has hinted at coming out with one more sequel.
‘Don 2 - The King is Back', an action thriller, is a sequel to Akhtar's earlier film, which itself was a remake of the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Don' (1978).
When asked how long audience will get to see films from the ‘Don' series, Farhan replied, “Film ki kahani khatam nahin hoti. Just the way Don ko pakadna mushkil hai...same way story khatam hona bhi mushkil hai.” (The story of the film does not end here. Just the way it is difficult to catch the Don...it is difficult to end the story.)
“I made the sequel to the first film as people were asking me if I was making any. Earlier I had not thought of making a sequel...but the appreciation and constant curiosity let me think on the second installment of ‘Don',” he said after unveiling the theatrical trailer of ‘Don 2'.
The film starring Shah Rukh, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Om Puri, Lara Dutta and Kunal Kapoor. The film is set to release on 23 December in 2D and 3D formats.
Talking about Shah Rukh Khan, who is also known as the ‘King Khan', Farhan said, “Iss film ka King SRK hai,” (SRK is the king of this film) he said.
Wishing Shah Rukh success for his superhero film ‘RA.One' that hits the cinema houses today, Farhan, is not bothered by Shah Rukh's absence at the promotional activity.
“Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hain, as he is busy with ‘RA.One'. This is justified. We did not want to disturb him at this point of a time. He is aware about the promotions being done for ‘Don 2'... his involvement will start soon,” Farhan said.
