“Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi namumkin hai” !!
Isn’t this what Shahrukh Khan kept saying in the movie Don? But there is an interesting twist in the story. SRK was in the Malacca prison, Malaysia to shoot for Don 2 directed by Farhan Akhtar. Does this mean the cops finally managed to capture Don? Can’t be so, as Don is unpredictable and cunning!
In the shoot SRK appears in a long tangled hairdo and a rugged look in a cool orange jail attire punching his inmates. A section of the jail was vacated to accommodate the crew after air lifting 700 prisoners. It wasn’t difficult for the Malaysian Datuk akin to a British knighthood (a titled conferred on SRK) to get permission for the shoot. It was granted, but with tight security.
The crew were not allowed to carry their cellphones or laptops into the prison. They were asked not to make any eye contact with the prisoners as they could hypnotize them. Talking about the shoot in the prison, Priyanka Chopra, the female lead in Don 2 said “Even though we never came in contact with the inmates, our movements inside the prison were restricted. It was like being locked up!”
Sharing his experience Boman Irani says “The prisoners would stand facing the wall whenever we drove from one cell block to another. Whenever any prisoner tried to turn and look at us from the corner of their eye, they were screamed at.”
The logic behind Don’s capture will be revealed on December 23rd.
