Farhan Akhtar to begin shooting Don 2 in Europe from August 2010


MUMBAI: Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are back from their European sojourn. The duo had gone location hunting for their sequel to Don. After seeing a few locations in London, the duo then proceeded to Germany and Ireland. And yes, they have zeroed in on their places for shooting.

Sidhwani, who is the head honcho of Excel Entertainment said, "We selected a few places in London and then went to Ireland. Dublin is certainly on the cards. The locations are breath taking. After that we flew to Germany. We went to Frankfurt and Berlin. Our scouting certainly proved fruitful and we have decided on the places that we will be shooting."

The earlier film by the same banner was shot in Malaysia. But this time they have decided to expand the criminal activities of the crime kingpin and perhaps that explains the location shift to Europe.

The cast of the sequel remains the same as the earlier one. Shah Rukh Khan is on the run with cops from 11 countries still chasing him and keeping him company is his moll, Priyanka Chopra.

Sidhwani has confirmed that the shooting for the film will start from August next year. Farhan Akhtar, who will be directing the film, has completed all his acting assignments and is now gearing up to take charge of shooting his fourth film.
