With the kind of sustained success that DON 2 has seen for itself, what with 100 crore all set to be in its kitty within two weeks flat, Farhan Akhtar and his partner Ritesh Sidhwani have ended 2012 on a high, what with ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA (which had released last year) being acknowledged as a superhit too. With GAME as their only flop and the other two biggies hitting the bull's eye, the makers are indeed happy with the way their productions have shaped up.


''Yes, ZINDAGI NAA MILEGI DOBARA grew from strength to strength while DON 2 has showcased all over again that the story/setting by itself and the character have been loved for so many years now,' smiles Farhan, 'It is an advantageous situation to be in. In fact I remember how during the promotion of ZINDAGI NAA.... I was asked questions around DON 2. Now it was pretty much a deja vu moment because during the promotion of DON 2, people had been enquiring around TALAASH.''

Seems Farhan is indeed happy to push the boundaries and in the process fetch good compliments for himself, what with DON 2 being a very good example of how a Bollywood film has come closer to his Western counterparts when it comes to style and technique being adopted to narrate an action thriller. No wonder, he is being hailed as a director to reckon with and audience is already wondering what would be do next.

''I am thankful if people have a certain regard for my work as a director. I take that as a serious compliment because there are lot of directors whom I look up to and wait for their movies. Now if I am fulfilling that role for somebody, it is a matter of being elated for sure. As for my next assignment then well, even I haven't closed on anything as of now,'' smiles Farhan before signing off.
