Don 2 being made in 3D

MUMBAI: Looks like the craze to make 3D films is increasing among Indian filmmakers. The move has got credence after the successful run of Vikram Bhatt’s Haunted.

Moving on from Haunted, Bhatt is making two films in the 3D format - Raaz 3 and Dangerous Ishq. Shirish Kunder has completed a schedule of his under production Joker, his 3D film with Akshay Kumar in the lead. Sohail Khan is set to launch Sher Khan with Salman Khan next year also in the same format.

The latest to join the bandwagon are Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, producer and director of Don - The Chase Begins Again, who are keen to take their sequel with Shah Rukh Khan to a new level.

Apart from dubbing the film in Tamil and Telugu besides Hindi, they have decided to make Don 2 in 3D.

Avers Sidhwani, "There is a huge demand for the brand Don. Our audiences must also be expecting much more and beyond just cinema from the sequel, hence a 3D format. We did a few 3D conversion tests on Don and the conversion outcome was very good, so while shooting Don 2, the 3D conversion was at the back of Farhan‘s mind just incase we decided to go ahead with 3D format. I was in LA recently and saw some 3D conversion tests and was blown by it. Hence I decided to go ahead and convert Don2 into 3D format."

Don 2 will be released worldwide on 23 December.
