Ritesh Sidhwani confirms the next instalment of Don
It appears that the third instalment of Don is finally set to happen soon with producer Ritesh Sidhwani issuing an official confirmation to a section of the media this week. “We have an idea and we are now going to put it into the scripting stage. Earlier, we were just thinking about it. But now that the idea is in place, Farhan is going to start writing it. We want to make Don 3; there’s a 100% confirmation on that,” Siddhwani recently issued a statement. The decision to make the third instalment of the film
was always on Farhan’s mind but he was looking for an exceptional idea to take the story forward. Apparently both Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar had brain-storming sessions to explore various possibilities for the third instalment but Farhan wasn’t quite convinced about any of them. It may be recalled that after Don, the second instalment Don-2 clicked at the box-office in a big way, both in the domestic and overseas market. The film was also the first Bollywood film to be shot in Germany, with the German government providing full support for the film. A local film promotion company named Medienboard had also funded 550,000 euros, a first time for an Indian film to receive such a big investment from a local media company. We will have to wait and watch where Don travels in the third sequel.
