Not just ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’, Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Don’ also celebrated an important milestone, its 14th anniversary, on Tuesday. Director Farhan Akhtar and producer Ritesh Sidhwani shared photographs from the movie to remember the journey of its making.
Their production house Excel Entertainment, which had bought the rights to Amitabh Bachchan-starrer 1978 film, remade the movie with Shah Rukh and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles in 2006. A sequel to the movie came out in 2011 with SRK and Chopra reprising their roles. Both the movies were directed by Akhtar.
The official Twitter handle of Excel Entertainment posted a picture of Khan as Don, standing behind him are 11 policemen, which hints at the popular dialogue “Don ka intezar toh 11 mulkon ki police kar rahi hai. Lekin Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahin, namumkin hai!"
