Shahrukh Khan's Don 2 turning out to be a potential threat for Billa franchise, as the Bollywood movie will be dubbed in Telugu and Tamil. It will hit the screens simultaneously with the Hindi version of the film on December 23, 2011.
Reliance Entertainment, which has acquired the theatrical rights of Don 2, is planning to release the movie in Telugu and Tamil. The dubbing works have recently started and it is not sure whether the lead actors, who are starring in the film, would dub their own voices or respective language artists will be chosen to lend their voices for the character in the upcoming movie.
What is most surprising is that Billa, which was a remake of Bollywood movie Don, is getting ready with its second instalment in Tamil. Whereas, in Telugu, Prabhas and Meher Ramesh are still planning for its sequel.
Though, Don was a remake of 1978s movie of the same name, the second instalment has a original story. In fact, in both Tamil and Telugu version, the respective filmmakers are planning the movie with fresh stories, which means all three versions will have different looks.
Don 2 stars Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Kunal Kapoor and Om Puri in the cast. It is directed by Farhan Akhtar and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar and Gauri Khan.
