Farhan hopes ''Don 2'' content not leaked before release
Mumbai, Oct 24 (PTI) Actor-director Farhan Akhtar, who is looking forward to his ambitious project ''Don 2 - The King is back'', says he is afraid of piracy and hopes the content of the film does not get leaked before its release.
Directed by Farhan, ''Don 2 - The King is Back'', an action thriller, is a sequel to his own film ''Don - The Chase Begins'' (2006).
Following the box office success, Farhan thought of making a sequel to the 2006 hit film.
"Piracy se darr lagta hai. (I am afraid of piracy). We are working with people whom we trust. But at the end of the day, one can''t predict...piracy can happen. I just hope nothing gets leaked before the release of the film," Farhan told reporters after unveiling the theartical trailer of the film here.
"I just appeal to people that even after the film gets released they do not opt for pirated version," he said.
The theatrical trailer of ''Don 2...'' will be showcased with Shahrukh Khan''s much awaited superhero film ''Ra.One'', that releases on October 26.
''Don 2'', starring Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Om Puri and Kunal Kapoor in pivotal roles, will hit the cinema houses on December 23.
"''Ra.One'' is the perfect film to showcase our trailer as theatres will have maximum footfalls and being a festive period, the 3D trailer will be an added bonus," producer of the film Ritesh Sidhwani said.
The sequel is being made in 3D version.
"We had not thought of making ''Don 2'' in 3D earlier. It was not shot in 3D version. It was later that we decided to convert the film in 3D version to appeal to the audience considering the advancement in technology," Farhan said. PTI KKP NP SKT
