Don 2 Dubai Premiere Cancelled

Dubai Premiere of Don 2 on December 21 has been cancelled

Interviewed Abhishek Bachchan today. He says Dostana 2 is very much on. The news report that has appeared today stating that Tarun Mansukhani has asked for a share in the profits of the film, according to Abhishek, is incorrect.

Ferari Ki Savari first look promo (60 sec) will be coming along with Don 2. In an informal chat with Sharman today (not an interview on camera or otherwise), we discussed more about the film. Its going to release on April 27 and the dialogues of the film have been written by Raju Hirani. Sharman denied news reports that he may be doing Hirani's directorial venture starring Aamir. We spoke about the continued success of 3 Idiots. Incidentally, 3 Idiots recently released in China with a whopping 900 prints and is doing extremely well. It also did exceptional business during its release in Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan recently. 3 idiots is also being remade in Chinese.


  1. Ouchy !! that has to hurt..any explanation??

  2. Many will wonder & be disappointed. Maybe somewhere in the mix of things it will be back on track..just have to wait and see. Maybe traded it for another location? Who knows. Berlin is always a must do it seems. But Dubai being erased off the boards is interesting. Without speculating I'm sure there is a good reason.

  3. Though not Don related...it is SRK related. Faridoon would you happen to know when the release date for the Ra.One DVD is? Amazon.com initially listed it as December 13 but now that has been removed.

  4. hey do u know which place is he visiting in delhi tomrw?

  5. DON 2 is in limited release here in the US. Ca.& Texas only western states,everything else east of the Mississippi. 3D version in Little Rock Ark.Georgia.Massachusetts.Texas. LA &Orange Calif.Illinois.No.Carolina.Florida.Indiana.New Jersey.most cities are obscure or mid level metro. Hindi cinema may have cult status following but here it is very scattered. Most will have to wait for DVD at best.

  6. Thanks a lot for news on 3 Idiots! It is rated 9.9/10 on Chinese video sites like Watercress, Thunder and mtime.com. And is most watched movie for year 2010 on Youku.com (Youtube like site in China). Students in Vietnam are also doing flash mob on Zoobi Doobi from 3 Idiots. Taiwan also had a men's bodywash ad inspired from Aal izz well song and 3 Idiots is third longest running foreign language film there after Jurassic Park and Titanic.
    3I is also very popular in Philippines. I hope they consider releasing the film in Philippines too.

  7. You're so interesting! I do not think I've read through anything like this before.

    So nice to find someone with genuine thoughts on this subject matter.
    Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up.
