Producer Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment has turned down
the rumors about Shah Rukh Khan asking for distribution territory
for Don. He says that Shah Rukh never asked for it, nor
does Excel have any related plans. Excel Entertainment, jointly
owned by Ritesh and Farhan Akhtar, has been known for producing
films like Dil Chahta Hai and Lakshya.
Don, which is the remake of the 70's hit of Amitabh
Bachchan has been in news since the project started. It is one
movie that has been attracting the attention since the film stars
superstar SRK who will play Amitabh Bachchan's character.
Incidentally Aamir Khan had acquired the overseas rights for
Dil Chahta Hai. But after that Excel Films stopped giving
rights to actors since such policies didn't fit in well with the
production house's marketing strategy.
