The action sequences and stunts are already being filmed in the commercial districts of the city. The production schedule is to last for over two months in and around various locations in Berlin. The source also reveals that the German government has announced on their website that they will co-operate and support the filming of the movie. A local film promotion company named Medienboard has provided local support with 550,000 euros in the form of funds. This is the first time an India film has received such a big investment from a local media company.
Tourism in Berlin is expected to get a boost from Don 2; a source adds that after Shahrukh attended the Berlinale Film Festival last year for his film My Name Is Khan, the decision was made to shoot Don 2 in the German Capital.
Producer Ritesh Sidhwani said that the filming of the movie would include the country's culture to a minimum point so that it would get a certain portion of subsidy on the budget spent in Germany. He however, refused to speculate on the rebate being offered.
