Farhan Akhtar on the sets of Oye Its Friday in Yashraj Studio, Andheri, Mumbai on 26th Feb 2009 (4).JPGOne can recollect Farhan Akhtar’s Don remake Don – The Chase Begins being a mega Diwali release in the year 2006 and now Farhan is planning to make his Don sequel a grand Diwali release of 2010. We had earlier asked Farhan about the shoot delay plans and he had replied,

Farhan Akhtar on BBC Ek Mulaqat on 13th September 2008 (25).JPG“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.”

Our source however now reveals, “Don 2 which also stars Priyanka Chopra opposite SRK will start its shooting from April 2010. The director turned actor turned singer, who has been busy facing the camera with Rock On and Luck By Chance, has no time to wield the director’s baton until the summer of next year.

Our source further 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 was being planned since it was being scripted for the first film. Farhan is presently busy writing the script and doing the pre-production work required for such a film as the audiences will be expecting a lot from it.”

The story of Don 2 will take off from where Don ended. The surprise ending was a complete departure from the original version. And keeping with Akhtar’s penchant for making films with a difference, one can definitely expect the unexpected with his sequel.
