'Don 3' isn't happening: Farhan Akhtar

Added by harini on Dec 11, 2011

Farhan Akhtar is back to direction with the action packed ‘Don’ sequel ‘Don 2 – The Chase Begins’.

But the versatile director has had enough with action movies and has decided to venture into a whole new territory with his next movie.

“I need a break from action films. I have to think about other genres of storytelling too. And as a director, it’s also my right to explore different things because my last two films have been in the action genre,” he said.

“For my personal growth as a storyteller, it’s important to move on,” he added.

The actor said that he wont given be going back to movies similar to his break through movie ‘Dil Chahta Hai’.

“I am not thinking about making a film like ZNMD or going back to the ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ (2001) zone. I feel my contribution or enthusiasm level about doing action films has already created the Don films,” he said.

Recently it was reported that Farhan Akhtar was planning to make ‘Kill Bill’ sort of a movie featuring Priyanka Chopra. So, is that movie happening?

“Yes, or so I’m told!” he laughed. “I did say something to the effect of being really impressed with the way she did all her stunts herself. And I mentioned that someone should think about making a Kill Bill kind of film with her. Next thing I know, I was being quoted saying that I wanted to make a film with her.”

There have been rumors from the cast and crew that Farhan Akhtar is planning on making ‘Don 3’.

“I have no idea about it. They might be working on it secretly. Let me check and get back to you. As for me, no Don 3 is happening,” he said.

‘Don 2’ is already been in talks for its awesome action and stunts.

“It has the kind of stunts I enjoy watching. And it’s my take on how a movie like this should be. All the fistfights and combat scenes are very real. I consciously stayed away from ‘cinematic fights’, where a guy does three somersaults when the hero hits him,” he concluded.
