Bodyguard set a new record by releasing in 2,700 screens in India and around 500 prints overseas. Ra.One surpassed this record with its release in 3,100 screens in domestic market and around 1,500 screens in foreign countries. This is the highest number for an Indian film released ever. It was being speculated that this record will be erased by Don 2.
However, Don 2 is set to for worldwide release on the Christmas weekend of 23 December, 2011. The movie will be released with 3,000 movie prints in the domestic market and it will also have 3D release in 550 screens. Earlier, director Farhan Akthar has confirmed that Don 2 will hit the screens in 41 countries, but he did not reveal the number of theatres.
However, Farhan Akhtar's new film Don 2 - The King Is Back is a sequel to his 2006 film Don and the movie features Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra in the lead roles. With Don becoming the Blockbuster at the Box Office, Don 2 is expected to smash all collection records. Now, it should be seen whether it will live up to the expectations or not.
