Sequels are the order of the day. And now, there is a new buzz in the industry that Farhan Akhtar's Don - The Chase Begins Again will be followed with a sequel. The film, which is scheduled to release in Diwali this year, has already generated lot of hype. The major attraction being Shah Rukh Khan playing the role of Don, which was earlier, portrayed by the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan in 1978.
When director Farhan Akhtar was contacted, he said "I can't imagine a sequel to Don for reasons beyond just the story. The desire to make the film was to re create the excitement I felt watching the original as a child. That desire has been satisfied with this film and its time to move on to something new."
Also there are plans for the premiere of the film in London, but Farhan added that it was too early to comment on that.
