In the year 2004, a day after the release of the film Lakshya, Farhan Akhtar came to meet Shahrukh Khan. While meeting Shah Rukh, Farhan said, “I am considering making a remake of the film ‘Don’.” At first I thought that I will take Hrithik Roshan for this film but later I thought that you are fit for the maturity that should be seen in the role of ‘Don’ because when Amitabh Bachchan (Amitabh Bachchan) got the film ‘ Was seen in Dawn ‘. ‘He was about 40 years old at the time. You are also the same age, that is why I want to make this film with you. ‘
Shahrukh Khan (SRK) also liked Farhan Akhtar’s offer. Farhan left Shahrukh saying that he would come a month later to tell the story of the film. Shahrukh found Farhan’s point very strange. He felt that everyone already knew the story of the film. Everyone knows what happened in this film, what was the situation. Then why did Farhan ask for 1 month to narrate the story?
After Farhan left, Shah Rukh watched the DVD of the film ‘Dawn’ and started thinking that if the film was remade on this story, he would not be able to do a better job than Amitabh Bachchan and the new film would not be better. Compared to the old. For a month, Shah Rukh was very confused about this film and thought that if Farhan makes a film on an old story, he will refuse. Then when 1 month later Farhan Akhtar narrated the film’s story to Shah Rukh Khan, Shah Rukh realized that the story was actually different from the story of the old film and he agreed to work in the remake of ‘Don’.
