|SRK sports a fancy ‘D’ tattoo on his arm in Don 2; don’t mistake this for just another ‘D’ as the Don 2 team designed it especially for Shahrukh Khan.
Ritesh Sidhwani the producer of Don 2 reveals that the three of them (Farhan, SRK and Ritesh) jointly decided that it would be a good idea to make the tattoo permanently Shahrukh’s, and they created a new design and registered it.
Not only that, they see the potential in the Don franchise, and plan on creating a line of Don inspired merchandize that will feature the ‘D’ symbol - caps, T-shirts, bags and such. You can see the branding starting with the ‘D’ in the first look of the movie!
Shahrukh continues to grow as a producer, he has turned his cricket team the Kolkota Knight Riders into contenders, and is now turning into a marketing guru of sorts who is always trying to go the extra step to bring something new to the audience -- getting Akon to sing a hindi track in Ra.One; or to reach the audience in new ways -- turning Ra.One into a Playstation video game.
Don 2 will see two new additions in the face of Lara Dutta and Kunal Kapoor, the rest of the cast is the same as Don and includes Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani and Om Puri. Arjun Rampal will not be seen in the sequel.
The film will release on December 23, just two days ahead of Christmas. Guess Don 2 will conclude 2011 with a BOOM! Making way for a Don 3 someday.
