Amitabh, Shah Rukh to clash as Don

Posted by jahanzaibmemon on December 19, 2007

It looks like the senior and junior Don, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, will battle it out at the box office.

While Farhan Akhtar prepares to plunge into a sequel to his 2006 hit Don – The Chase Begins Again, with Shah Rukh in the lead, the family of Nariman Irani, who made the original Don in 1978 with Amitabh Bachchan, is all set to do their own take on the film with the Big B again.

Speaking on the subject for the first time, the Big B told IANS: “Yes, they (Nariman Irani’s family) met me some time back. I’m yet to hear the script.”

However, Farhan seems to be completely in the dark regarding this parallel project.

“I’ve no idea of this. We’ve very close relations with the Irani family. We’ve been very clear with each other. When they gave us the rights for remaking Don they gave us the right to exploit the movie for the next three-four years. We had even told them we might be doing a sequel. And they were really cool about it.

“They didn’t seem interested in going back and doing anything Don related. From the outset they’ve been straight with us. I don’t think they’d just go around announcing another movie.”

But with the Iranis having approached Amitabh, a clash of creative interest between the two Dons featuring the Big B and Shah Rukh seems inevitable.
