Making a sequel to a flop film is always a herculean task for the director. While, there are few films in Bollywood, where the sequels failed to recreate the magic of original ones, some managed to impress the audience with sequels and there is Don.
Shahrukh Khan’s 2006 starrer Don, which happens to be the remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s blockbuster Don that released in 1978, has disappointed the audience. It fared just average at the box office. Still, SRK and Farhan Akhtar came up with Don 2 in 2011, to score one more flop at the box office.
As per the latest updates, Farhan has plans to do Don 3 with Shahrukh Khan. It is heard that Farhan Akhtar decided to do another sequel in Don franchise, this time he will join hands not as director or producer but as writer and actor. It has been almost six years, Don 2 hit the screens. In a recent interview, the actor announced that he had already developed the script and SRK also liked it. Farhan will be acting as a cop in the movie.
Coming to the heroine, the makers are looking for a fresh face for the role of female lead, as the script doesn’t need global star Priyanka Chopra as her role is being discontinued. The film is likely to hit the screens in 2020. Hope the Don sequel scores a hit at least now.
Amitabh’s Don was remade in Telugu by Sr NTR as “Yugandhar” and later Prabahs also remade it again as “Billa”.
