Shahrukh Khan and Farhan Akhtar have had a long and fruitful association. Shahrukh has acted in two films directed by Farhan Akhtar. Their first movie together was Don in 2006 and then it's sequel Don 2. And if the reports are true, SRK in an interview with a leading magazine, has confirmed that he would be playing a Gujrati Don in an untitled film to be produced by Farhan Akhtar's Excel Entertainment.
The movie will be directed by Rahul Dholakia and Shahrukh will be playing a large-hearted Gujarati don in it. Ritesh Sidhwani, co-owner of Excel Entertainment was quoted as saying "Shahrukh is doing the film. We don't know yet when the shooting for the movie will start but it's going to be sometime next year. Shahrukh has really liked the script and has given us a nod but because of his prior commitments, we still haven't figured out the exact time the film will go on floors." When asked about the future of Don series, he said "With a franchise like Don and the character, its important to get excited by the script. It is very crucial for us as we do not want to do a movie together just for the sake of it." Click here to view images from the movie Don 2.
