Director Farhan Akhtar says that he is afraid of piracy and hopes that the content of his ambitious project Don 2 - The King is Back does not get leaked before its release. The action thriller is a sequel to his own film Don - The Chase Begins (2006). Following appreciation and its box office success, Farhan thought of making a sequel to the 2006 hit film.
Farhan Akhtar unveiled the theatrical trailer of the film Don 2 in Mumbai on Monday. Talking to the PTI, the actor-cum-director said, "Piracy se darr lagta hai. (I am afraid of piracy). We are working with people, whom we trust. But at the end of the day one can't predict...piracy can happen. I just hope nothing gets leaked before the release of the film." He added, "I just appeal to people that even after the film gets released they do not opt for pirated version."
The theatrical trailer of Don 2 is being showcased with Shahrukh Khan's much-awaited superhero film Ra.One, which is all set to release on October 26. Producer Ritesh Sidhwani said, “Ra.One is the perfect film to showcase our trailer, as theatres will have maximum footfalls and being a festive period, the 3D trailer will be an added bonus."
However, Don 2 stars Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Om Puri and Kunal Kapoor in the lead roles. The film is scheduled to hit the screens on December 23. The Don sequel was made in normal version, but the filmmakers later converted the film in 3D version to appeal to the audience considering the advancement in technology.
